Off to a flying start, or what? Not content with hosting the next in our series of international labour and employment law webinars, our new L&E Asia hub partner Julia Yeo will shortly be treading the boards again with a starring role at the Tower Ballroom – but not dancing and, no doubt to her considerable chagrin, not in Blackpool.

Courtesy of leading Asian employee benefits publication, Julia is appearing as guest panellist and the only practising lawyer at the 2017 Employee Benefits conference in the Tower Ballroom at the Shangri La, Singapore on 18 May. Sharing a platform with high-profile regional employers including Deutsche Bank, Aon, Mitsubishi, Virgin and the Ministry of Health, she will tackle the vexed issue of how HR can square the particular demands of the gig (contingent) economy worker with best comp and bens practice.

This is apparently Asia’s largest Employee Benefits conference of 2017 and is absolutely not in Blackpool, so please do go along and say hello to Julia if you can.
