Neil Morrison Biography

The HR Director of Penguin Random House, Neil Morrison played a key role in the merger of the two major publishing houses.

Although acutely aware of the anxiety and challenges experienced during times of change, he is passionate about the opportunities that arise when creating something new, and the need for strong purpose and values in order to drive organisational success. 

His thoughtful keynote presentations expound on the importance of concentrating on culture and leadership. In order to avoid being dragged down to tricky phrases like ‘consolidation’, ‘integration’ and ‘harmonisation’, leaders should be clear about genuinely looking for the ‘best solution’.

Prior to the merger, Neil spent five years as HR director at Random House, following stints at Rentokil and Argos.

The HR Director of Penguin Random House, Neil Morrison played a key role in the merger of the two major publishing houses.

Although acutely aware of the anxiety and challenges experienced during times of change, he is passionate about the opportunities that arise when creating something new, and the need for strong purpose and values in order to drive organisational success. 

His thoughtful keynote presentations expound on the importance of concentrating on culture and leadership. In order to avoid being dragged down to tricky phrases like ‘consolidation’, ‘integration’ and ‘harmonisation’, leaders should be clear about genuinely looking for the ‘best solution’.

Prior to the merger, Neil spent five years as HR director at Random House, following stints at Rentokil and Argos.

In his view, building an organisation for the twenty-first century is something that not everyone is lucky enough to be able to do. In a modern era, people can be part of more than one culture, and they are central to the success of a company.

Embracing lessons from his experience guiding an organisation through digital change, he discusses how to lead during times of disruption and the role that technology plays in affecting how we think about work.

Drawing on his extensive experience in Human Resources, Neil is forthright in expressing the shortcomings of the field and discusses in his provocative blog, Change Effect, how the profession could be shaken up for the better.

His speaking topics include:

- Change management

- Technology and work

- The future of work

- The HR profession
