Join us at one of our Circle of Peers events
Autumn Series 2019
Surfing the Sigmoid Curve
The last quarter in our year and thoughts turn to 2020 and beyond…
Drawing from a range of sources Maureen Scholefield will help you to think about:
- Reflect on the old – simple and yet complex thoughts on how the Sigmoid Curve first raised by Charles Handy in 1995 and then consistently over the years is still totally relevant for us
- Deloitte’s view of the Future of HR versus the new CIPD Profession Map
- Agile, nimble, entrepreneurial energy – is this only applicable for the organisation or should People Professionals role model these qualities?
As ever there will be time for you to reflect on her thoughts and words and have a lively discussion with your peers.
What is the Circle of Peers?
Circle of Peers was launched in 2007. We recognised that People Professionals valued opportunities to meet and exchange experiences. These events also provide a support mechanisms for our candidates.
Circle of Peers events are good for People Professionals who give so much to others and yet do not take care of themselves.
If you’re thinking about getting a qualification with us, these events are ideal to meet us, get to know us and ask us questions in depth.
They’re held in London, Sussex, Dubai, Gibraltar and the Isle of Man.
Why not come along at a venue that suits you.

Share, inform, update.
Our concept of Circle of Peers works in formal and less formal situations, so the aims of Circle of Peers Casual meetings are to:
- Share ideas, concepts and experiences
- Formulate approaches, formulate models of good practice
- Inform and update each other
Network and extend personal contacts in similar and different sectors. This is just what Circle of Peers Casual is designed to do!
- The Wine Bar at the Institute of Directors, Pall Mall, London
- Bar George, Douglas, Isle of Man
- Bianca’s Restaurant, Gibraltar
- The Sheraton Grand Hotel, Dubai, UAE
It is casual so we will be happy to see you for a quick or lengthy drink!
It’s good to talk…
With up to the minute presentations from industry professionals and group discussions, we meet under the ‘Chatham House Rule’ to share, support, and where appropriate, learn from each other.
We all know that bouncing ideas, discussing problems and sharing solutions in a safe environment helps us to hone the ultimate plan. Finding that someone else has tried that particular approach and can share the successes and the pitfalls is of incalculable value, saving time, money and that all important stress factor.
We partner with our past and current clients in the People industry, offering insights into a wide range of interesting businesses.
There are times when it’s lonely at the top.
It is difficult to know who you can talk to inside an organisation. Cullen Scholefield are well placed to offer objective and sound advice in a safe and confidential environment. Over the 32 years we have been working with managers and HR professionals we have always listened to and supported our clients.
So we can…
- Act as sounding boards
- Reflect back
- Offer advice
- Generate ideas
- Provide interim support
- Work on short projects
- Facilitate that “interesting” session
- Connect you to others

Maureen always has an interesting collection of people that come along and it’s a very useful networking opportunity. Perhaps there’s an opportunity to exchange ideas.
We have a seasonal workforce, and trying to make sure they get supported with the resources that we have can sometimes be tricky. A lot of will come back year after year. We’ve had people for 20+ years.
As an HR executive in South Africa, you were very much part of the subsidiary board, strategic development of key values and key drivers for the company. HR is an integral part of that. It’s not a grudge purchase.
Networking from an HR perspective is very important. I’ve never been one that only focussed on HR. I’ve always believed in cross-functionality, so that’s why I like meeting new people. As an HR person, you need that holistic view.
I have know Maureen for 20+ years. We were setting up NVQs and we needed trained assessors and Maureen did a great job providing those.
I try to come to these events on a regular basis.
