Cirencester, UKLearning NewsFosway

Fosway Group, Europe’s #1 independent HR analyst, today announces the appointment of Kate Graham as its head of content and communications. The new role will support the accelerated growth in research output following the launch of the organisation’s rebrand and next generation HR analyst practice in April 2015.


Graham joins Fosway Group with a wealth of experience across learning and development and HR. She was a founder and director of Ascot Communications and has previously worked extensively with both vendor and end-user organisations. She is also involved with numerous industry bodies and is known for her work supporting and coordinating social media coverage of leading European industry events.  

The expansion of Fosway Group in 2015 has consolidated its view of the trends and underlying business drivers for change within HR and learning today. With a research agenda that now includes key themes from HR transformation, Cloud HCM and talent, to next generation learning, gamification and service delivery, Graham will drive an extended content library that builds on the existing 19+ years of Fosway’s reports and resources already available. The popular Fosway 9-Grid™ model continues to be applied to new market segments and updated Vendor Reports were launched this month, alongside unique cross-European HR realities research conducted with HRN, the organisers of the HR Tech World events. Further new research will be published in a variety of formats and across a number of different channels under Graham’s watch.

‘With our unrivalled research and insights into the realities of next generation HR and learning in Europe, it is an exciting time for Fosway Group’ explains David Wilson, CEO. ‘We are delighted to have Kate on board to accelerate the reach and impact of our research output, as well as to innovate with new content formats to increase our engagement with corporate clients. Her appointment will significantly reduce our time-to-market for new research and further expand the resources available to the broader market place.’

Graham comments, ‘I am thrilled to take up this role with Fosway Group, which enables me to share my industry experience and work with a great team that really understands the market. It is so important that we all learn what really works and what doesn’t. Too often, organisations embark on HR or learning initiatives that fail to have the desired impact. Fosway’s research, insights and network is unparalleled across Europe and I can’t wait to start sharing that output.’
