"At People Matters TechHR 2022, it has been my pleasure to invite leaders to rethink what is possible; to look at our present with fresh eyes and reimagine a new future; to create, as a community together, a new narrative about how we want to rewrite the future of people and work," said Ester Martinez, Founder, CEO, and Editor-in-Chief of People Matters.

"The confluence of ideas and looking at problems with #FreshEyes here at TechHR is great. Nature wants us to cling to old ways, but it's important to realise that the old ways are never going to come back, at least not in the same way. TechHR is a great platform for people to come together to exchange ideas, address problems and find newer solutions," said Holger Mueller, Vice President and Principal Analyst at Constellation Research, Inc.

Experiential Learning for Impact

Learning in the flow of work and learning by doing have emerged as the most effective ways of building skills. And so People Matters TechHR brings one a series of unique Masterclass sessions based on experiential learning. Over both days of the 2022 conference, industry experts led these special sessions, offering a fresh look at various skills. From problem-solving using the LEGO Serious Play Method, to organisational transformation through Social Presencing Theater, to a special invitation-only workshop on how to pitch their business to venture capitalists, and even an exclusive track drawn directly from People Matters' cohort-based digital learning platform BeNext, People Matters TechHR offers the opportunity to rethink what's possible in learning and skilling.

Unconference - Place to Brainstorm

People Matters TechHR gathers top people and work leaders from every sector of the economy, to share their experience and solutions, and brainstorm how to tackle highly topical issues. In a series of Think Tanks featuring leaders from major successful organisations in industries ranging from FMCG to F&B, essential services to finance powerhouses, TechHR 2022 surfaced discussions around contemporary work models, best practices for managing Gen Z, applications of latest technology, and even how to grow beyond the CHRO role and into a potential CEO.

People Matters Startup Program

At TechHR 2022, People Matters offered 26 startups, the unique opportunity to make their pitches in front of renowned mentors and investors such as Hidekazu Ito, Managing Director of Mynavi Solutions India and Board Member of People Matters, and Sajith Pai, Venture Capitalist at Blume Ventures. In a series of small, exclusive sessions over both days of the conference, they received intensive guidance on how to refine their presentations and hone their business plans to shine among the competition.

"Startup programme curation was fantastic. It improves from year to year, and this year I see a lot of high-quality startups which I would really want to sit across the table and chat more deeply with. Clearly, it is a testament to the work that People Matters has put into curating and sourcing startups," said Pai.

Lucky Ali Talks About Creativity.

Celebrity singer and songwriter Lucky Ali joined the event at TechHR India 2022 to talk about his musical journey, how he unlocked his creativity to build his dream career, and shared some hacks to do the same. And to round off the evening, he held a mini-concert just for TechHR speakers and delegates. To a full house, he performed famous hits including 'Ek Pal ka Jeena' from the movie Kaho na pyaar hai, 'O Sanam', and 'Tu Kaun hai' from the movie Bhopal Express. He even gave a special preview of his new song that will be released this week.
