International HRD Forum

International Executive Forums

The CEB International HRD Forum is dedicated to connecting, informing and enabling HR leaders of multinational subsidiaries to help them build even more successful Australian operations. Being a member of an International Forum positively influences operational performance, professional excellence and personal fulfilment.


Why running global operations
in Australia can be challenging

Leaders of multinational subsidiaries operating in Australia face the unique challenges of operating both locally and globally at the same time, creating the paradox of more accountability with less control.

Promise Keeper: Expectation of globally consistent pricing

Regional Platform: Disregard for cultural and language variances

Test Market: Lack of infrastructure and/or investment for test market effectiveness

Innovation Incubator: Lack of appropriate investment

Talent Factory: Perceived as a poacher

Make Money: Out of sync budgeting based on northern hemisphere cycle

What Our Members Are Saying

The International HRD Forum is a credible group of like-minded senior professionals. Many of the other groups I have tried are too entry-level and share information that anyone who has worked in HR for 5 years or more should already know. I want to be challenged in my thinking.
