1. Monthly Online and Telephone Q&A Sessions

Every month, Daniel Barnett holds Q&A sessions, offering personal support and helping you solve all your HR problems and employment law issues.
We rotate every month between a live telephone Q&A conference call, and a live video session on our private Facebook page, as follows:

Month 1: A telephone Q&A, where members dial in and anybody who wants to can ask questions in turn. An operator makes your line 'live' when it's your turn to discuss your HR issues with Daniel.

Month 2: A Q&A via Facebook live video. You log into Facebook and watch Daniel broadcasting live. Just type any questions into the comment box and Daniel will answer them in real time. It's leading technology without any pain.

Worried you'll miss one? All sessions are recorded, and you'll be sent a link to both the recordings and a full transcript every month.

Estimated value: £100 per Q&A session

"Many fantastic points that I can take back to my organisation and points that I can now ensure we put in place to avoid losing Tribunals."

Laura Roberts, People Services Consultant, TalkTalk

2. Your Monthly CD and .mp3

Choose between a CD or .mp3 file every month (or have both!), specially recorded for you by Daniel Barnett. The CDs contain practical HR advice, legal tips, shortcuts, and sometimes a short seminar on a hot employment law or HR topic.  It's information you can't get elsewhere and is exclusively produced by Daniel Barnett for members of the HR Inner Circle. Want to know what's on them?  We keep the details confidential, but here are the titles of a few recent CDs:-

  • Getting the best out of an occupational health referral
  • Holiday pay hell
  • Planning for a terms & conditions change
  • Managing disability-related absence
  • Being or briefing a witness at an employment tribunal hearing
  • Unorthodox redundancy selection
  • Absence management and disability discrimination
  • Drafting and using flexibility and mobility clauses
  • Social media issues in the workplace
  • Data Protection for HR Professionals
  • Apprentices
  • How to Fire Well

You can listen in your car or on your computer, and learn really practical stuff to help you manage change and give good HR advice.  But if you'd prefer them as an .mp3 to play on your iPhone, you can have that too.

Cost if purchased individually: £97 per CD

5. Quarterly Lunches

Every three months, all members are invited to a two-hour lunch with Daniel in a private dining room at a city centre 5-star hotel or top restaurant. These lunches are intimate (normally no more than 9 people, allocated on a 'first-come, first-served basis') and jam-packed with frank discussion.

You get two hours to throw all your employment law and HR questions at Daniel, whilst experiencing opulent food and ambience. Nobody else gets this sort of access to Daniel.

Daniel visits all the major cities in the UK in rotation, with forthcoming cities including Manchester, Bristol, London, Birmingham and Leeds.

Estimated value:- £197+VAT per lunch

Karen Woodbridge

“I really enjoy being able to ask Daniel questions and having access to his level of expert knowledge. The lunch was fabulous and well worth the time out of the office.”

Karen Woodbridge, Hornet Solutions Ltd

6. Annual Conference and Networking Event

The ultimate networking event for ambitious HR professionals, wanting to learn from the best names in the business.

Hosted by Daniel Barnett, you'll hear from the most charismatic and entertaining speakers both inside and outside the HR community.  There'll be fantastic networking opportunities and the chance to absorb up-to-the-minute best practice and implementation strategies.

Tickets are available to non-members of the Inner Circle for £797+VAT. All members of the HR Inner Circle are entitled to complimentary entrance, and also receive online access to a recording of the conference.

Value: £797+VAT

“Daniel’s insights, based on his extensive experience and knowledge, are both eye-opening and eye-watering.”

7. '999' Help Service

Once you've been a member of the Inner Circle for six months, you get access to a secret '999@HRInnerCircle.co.uk' email address which you can use if you have an urgent, important employment law issue.  This is a unique opportunity to consult with Daniel in person, normally on the same day as your enquiry, in a 30 minute 1:1 telephone consultation.

You may use this service as part of your membership once a year.  If you wish to use it more often, we will discuss an appropriate consultancy fee with you (but we won't, and will never, charge you anything without your agreement).

This isn't a substitute for full legal advice, but it's a pretty good start.  And we can also point you in the right direction as to where to get professional help (if you want it), including consulting privately with Daniel at the discounted HR Inner Circle rates.

Value: £400+VAT per annum

Elizabeth Ince

"The policy guidance and advice is invaluable."

"What's really good is the meeting of like minds in a quasi-work environment, which allows a relaxed approach.  I really like the format."

Simon Beet, Beet HR

Here's what you WON'T get in the Inner Circle

  • Jargon or over-complicated language. We keep it simple, manageable and, above all, pragmatic.
  • Sitting on the fence - Daniel is known for his practical, action-orientated, commercial advice.
  • Scaremongering. We're here to help you separate what's important from what's not.
  • Hidden Charges. Never. The only extra (small) fee is if you choose to upgrade to a VIP ticket for the Inner Circle Annual Conference.
  • Lack of business awareness. Daniel Barnett has owned and run three successful businesses (one of which he sold to Thomson Reuters in 2011). We gear everything to the needs of your business.
  • Lawyers. We're a closed community, for HR professionals and business owners only.
  • Negativity. We don't judge or criticise. We help you move forward.
  • People selling you things. We have no sponsors, and won't ever rent out our list to advertisers.
Nancy Batchelor,

"I've been a bit behind in employment law.  This really brings it to life, and cements it in your head."
