Peter Cheese
An evening with Peter Cheese who will be addressing members and answering questions from the floor.

Peter will speak of the Future of HR as a function and as a profession.

He will typically talk of  the changing context of the nature of work, workforce and workplace, how this is creating in many ways an inflection point for business and for HR, but how we also need to step up, to think differently and to focus more on building capabilities in areas such as analytics, engaging with the development of the science of understanding human and organisational behaviour, and in how we really add value to the enterprise.

From that, we need to think more about HR as a profession, from attracting more young people in to it as a career choice, to career development, CPD etc.


Peter Cheese joined the CIPD as Chief Executive in July 2012. He spent 30 years working at Accenture, culminating in a 7 year spell as Global Managing Director leading the firm’s Talent and Organisation Performance Consulting Practice. He also held various executive sponsorship positions for Accenture’s firm-wide skills and capability development programs, and the firm’s global Human Capital and Talent Strategy.

After leaving Accenture in 2009, Peter held a portfolio of consulting and non-executive roles. During this time he was also appointed Chairman of the Institute of Leadership and Management, a post he stepped down from on his appointment to the CIPD, whilst remaining as a Board member.

Peter sits on the Council of City & Guilds, and he is a European Board Director with Junior Achievement Young Enterprise Europe, an organisation focused on the development of entrepreneurial, financial and employability skills in young people through business engagement in schools and universities.

He is also an Executive Fellow at the London Business School, associated with the faculties of Strategic Management and Organisational Behaviour.
