Welcome to our branch

Welcome to the Sussex Branch page. The branch covers the whole geographical county of Sussex, on the south coast of England. My name is Janet Webb and I'm the chair of the Sussex Branch. The branch committee organise a variety of CPD events, networking and social events to support you profesionally. Some will be already in place, and some will be organised to respond to the changing world in which we live and work.

Ensure you are signed up for our newsletter to hear about the programme, you will find a form  below. Also, we have a LinkedIn group and Twitter feed where we share updates and discuss all things HR, L&D and OD.

We look forward to welcoming you to one or many of our events.

We bring together people professionals with a common interest to network, share ideas and learn from one another. Please email us if you’d like to join one of our special interest groups.

Independents forum

The forum supports those who are thinking of, or are working, independently. It provides networking and continuing professional development for those who work on their own. It is a supportive community to use as a sounding board, share ideas and knowledge and to collaborate with others. The group meets at least three times during the year.
