Join our Events

Most HX Leaders are doing their role for the very first time and most have started in the past 24 months. Even HX ‘Pioneers’ are looking for ‘What’s Next for HX?’. We formed this network at the request of HX Leaders who want to meet and learn from one another, share ‘what works’, and co-create and shape HX to emphasize the Human Experience. Most conferences feature one-way presentations. You sit and listen. Our events are designed to engage and maximize the learning from everyone present, with topics across the rich spectrum of HX.

We invite all HX and CX leaders and those who do People Analytics, Design Thinking, Journey Mapping, Physical and Digital Workspace, Agile methodology, as well as those who design People processes that benefit from HX e.g. Talent Acquisition, Learning, Performance Management, etc.

Who should attend: This online HX Summit is free and open to all who have a role dealing with EX, CX, UX, Design, Digital, Agile, Analytics, etc.

The EX Leaders Network has been rebranded as the ‘HX Leaders Network‘ (HXLN), reflecting the focus on the total ‘Human Experience’ of Work. We experience work well beyond HR processes and the traditional lifecycle. Covid-19 has accelerated changes already underway in business model and business strategy, as well as our physical and digital workspace. The new HXLN is a platform to ‘Connect, Learn and Share’ our experiences to inspire and educate others.

On June 10, HXLN member organizations will participate in closed ‘HXLN Cohort Webcalls where they will exchange and share examples and applications. HXLN members also enjoy access to resources, tools and discounts to HX Playbook workshops and bootcamps. For more information on how to join the HX Leader Network, please write:
