About us

Back in 2008, we began as a small gathering to listen to an HR expert. The audience liked the concept. We loved it. We conducted another session and people liked it too. Basically, the idea of networking and knowledge sharing on the same platform connected well with people. That encouraged us to do more of what we did and the audience and interest kept increasing. 125+ events later, we continue to enjoy the goodwill and support of about 7500 patrons from over 2300 organisations. Bringing a speaker and an audience together has been gratifying to a speaker, valuable to a participant and fulfilling for HR Sangam
