In late May I attended the Australasian Talent Conference (ATC) in Sydney. The conference was well organised with a variety of speakers from different industries and functions – all presenting on the topic of finding and managing talent.
Here are a couple of the presenters I enjoyed listening to at the event:
Jason Kerr, Founder & CTO of Find.ly flew in from Silicon Valley for a brief but energetic promotion of a fascinating and powerful new tool http://www.find.ly/.
Stephen McSweeney, Talent Acquisition Manager at AGL Energy presented on developing and implementing an authentic and diverse Employee Value Proposition (EVP) http://www.agl.com.au/about/careers/Pages/Home.aspx.
Karen Morley, Founder of Gender Worx explained the importance and benefits of having gender targets and women in leadership positions http://www.genderworx.com.au/
Dean Pearson, Head of Industry Analysis, National Australia Bank, gave a lengthy but well researched overview of the global to local economic perspectives and the implications for employment and recruitment.
