The Circle is a peer-to-peer community for human resource development managers of large international businesses. We hold Circle meetings in each region twice a year. Today there are more than 200 members in the Netherlands and Belgium.

In the Netherlands there is an additional sub-community for production, industrial and technical businesses; ‘Circle PIT’. For more information please contact us.

The Circle community and meetings provide the opportunity to:
