This was a wonderfully and joyously attended conference. There was an abundance of youthful energy – the new Turkey at its best. The event was planned with terrific intelligence and precision, and extremely smoothly managed by highly professional staff. The speakers were a well-chosen mix with plenty to provoke new thoughts and new practices. The setting was magnificent and extremely well-staged, with a wonderful atmosphere and spirit throughout. It was a pleasure and a privilege to be part of it.

Provokatik was the title given to the Human Resources Summit 2014 at the Istanbul Convention & Exhibition Centre organised by Management Centre Türkiye and Eventus. I go to a LOT of HR themed conferences in the UK and Europe and this has stood out for me as the one with the most impact because it was set up to provoke. It certainly provoked me and the participants for 3 reasons (1) it had a really energetic feel to it - a real sense of "the art of the possible" (2) It is not just pacy and but dynamic - no room for intellectual slouches here. Fast, focused and useful content which creates the energy and the dynamism. And lastly, it has a WOW factor down to the use of physical and digital space. Great audio visual and digital media integration with social media centre stage with the speakers. A stage that any speaker would be proud to grace. A superb job putting this summit together and a tough act to follow both next year and for other HR Conferences. I was proud, excited and humbled to be a part of it.

The Human Resources Summit Istanbul 2014 was fantastic. As a speaker I can say that it was extremely well organized. The staff were super professional and also personally wonderful, charming, and supportive in every way. I can honestly say that I’ve never spoken at a better organized event or one with such a dedicated, efficient staff. In addition, the speeches, the hosts, the music, the videos, receptions, dinners and all the happenings left me feeling deeply inspired. All and all, it was as perfect as a summit can possible get! A+!!!

This was an extraordinary conference. I was expecting something mainstream and boring, and was delighted to hear so many genuinely provocative ideas and challenges to deeply held assumptions. The synergy among the speakers was amazing too. Although the attendees were mostly local, I don't see why this couldn't become the premier summit in the field.

The 2014 HR Summit in Istanbul was an outstanding and thought-provoking event that brought together some of the most creative and humanistic thinkers and practitioners of progressive people management approaches from around the world. All businesses and indeed all societal institutions should measure their success by the ways in which they impact the lives of people. What was particularly powerful about this event was its emphasis on building greater love and care into our organizations. I was deeply inspired and moved by the whole experience.

This was a world-class event in every sense and in every detail. The programme was jam-packed with cutting-edge material, the venue was dynamic, the organisation was impeccable. In short, this was everything a great conference should be: inspiring, stimulating, fun.

"It was an honor and privilege for me to work with The Management Centre Türkiye at their 2014 HR Summit in Istanbul. I had the opportunity to present a keynote to 1500 + energized and engaged attendees. Management Centre Türkiye organized and executed an incredible 2-day conference that featured leading thinkers and practioners from the world of economics, business and human resources and attendees had the chance to listen to incredible 20-minute keynotes as well as various breakout sessions. Attendees also had the chance to meet with many of the top human resource vendors in the world. As someone who has spoken at hundreds of similar conferences all over the world, I would say that Management Centre Türkiye 's was one of, if not the best, human resource conferences I have been involved with. Management Centre Türkiye has great leaders, great employees... intelligent, passionate, all of whom truly care about helping organizations, leaders and future leaders become the best they can be"

I wanted to thank you, again, for making it possible for me to be part of this superbly provokatik conference in Istanbul. It was simply wonderful! As I told you, I have never seen an HR conference to be a mind-stretching, thought-provoking, and playful as this one. The atmosphere was just right - intellectual stimulation and emotional engagement; micro-focus and macro-attention. You have developed something unique there, which is clearly appreciated by participants. Thank you for enabling me to be part of this rewarding experience.
