This is an exclusive one-day student conference, being hosted as a collaboration between the ABP and University of Westminster. The event aims to bring together business psychology students, alumni, early-career researchers & professionals, with potential graduate recruiters interested in applying psychology in the workplace.

The conference will run a series of workshops, corporate exhibits, keynotes, speaker sessions and a discussion panel which will be live streamed. This offers all delegates an invaluable opportunity to gain new skills sets, industry insights and face-to-face networking amongst a high calibre talent pool and industry experts.


Standing out from the crowd – what’s a Business Psychologist’s USP?

Panel: TBC

What differentiates a business psychologist from its competitors? What do you have that your competitors don’t? How can you sell yourself to a potential employer or client?

This 40-minute session will provide an indispensable and interactive discussion, to finish off a stimulating day of learning and networking. Following an initial address to the title question from each panel member, the room will open for questions from all delegates participating face-to-face and viewers streaming in.

Anyone not able to attend the conference in person can live-stream the event between 16:00-16:45 on 26th June 2018 via our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ABPyschologists/.

Tweet your questions to panellists using #BPSC18 and we will address them in the room. 

Conference Streams

We will have 3 streams: 

Innovations in Graduate Recruitment

The change in demand for graduates has seen some truly innovative developments in recruitment over the last few years. Advances like gamification, virtual job trials and new approaches to volume processing have changed the landscape of traditional hiring. Delegates will learn what new recruitment strategies are being used to attract talented new grads and how candidates can successfully break into the job market amid serious competition. Speakers and exhibitors will be offered the opportunity to showcase a new or iconic product than demonstrates this innovation - providing opportunities for new talent to engage with your organisation.

Workforce of the Future

How we work has moved from office hours / shift patterns to an “always on” schedule. The impact of technology has led to requirements for new skills, while facilitating new types of demand in media and analytics. Moreover, as the last of the millennials and Gen Y join Generation Z and prep to make an entry point into work, the UK workforce will become more diverse than ever with 5 different generations working together. This stream allows speakers / potential recruiters to demonstrate what they anticipate from future employees. Delegates will gain invaluable insights into changing patterns of work and the impact of a multigeneration workforce.

Student Research Contributions

The opportunity for students to showcase their work, collaboration, or sole project, at the conference and to potential recruiters.
