Said Matt Burns, Global HR Summit Founder and BentoHR CEO,The Global HR Summit is more than an event. More than a business conference. It’s an opportunity to start a conversation that many of us have been waiting years to have.”

The Global HR Summit invites its visitors to immerse themselves in the future of immersive workplace (XR) technologies that inspire and ultimately enable digital transformation. The Summit will be presented in both 2D (YouTube live-stream) and 3D (virtual reality) formats. The event will also be recorded in its entirety and available for future viewing.

We have an opportunity amidst the chaos, to come together in VR (Virtual Reality) and via Live-stream as a collective to overcome race, socio-economic status, and/or geographic location; and start the dialogue(s) that will drive our world forward,” remarked Navjeet Chhina, Global HR Summit Founder and  CEO Genius Ventures Inc.
