Soft skills, Hard Results: Achieving transformational business growth from Learning and Development

Alison Humphries, Owner/Director, Recruitment Leadership

  • Ensuring training stays "real world"
  • Why most learning fails to produce lasting results

Alison Humphries (MA Oxon, FIRP, CIPD, DipT&D) has 30 years’ experience in recruitment, as a director of 4 listed businesses and most recently led Liquid Personnel as MD through a period of exceptional growth culminating in a trade sale to ICS Group in 2016.

The Future of Relationship Marketing & Technology

Clair Bush, International Marketing Director, Bullhorn

  • Recruiters are clearly comfortable with technology. The reliance to keep track of candidates and relationships is deeply embedded within most recruitment processes, but how is the use of technology changing and how will this affect recruitment? 
  • More importantly, how will this affect relationship marketing and how can you leverage these trends to stay ahead? 
  • Join Clair as she walks through trends and technical innovation, which is already starting to have an impact on how we engage and communicate in this more joined-up world.

As Director of International Marketing for Bullhorn, Clair is a highly experienced marketing professional with extensive knowledge of the recruitment sector. Having established herself as a recruitment marketing thought leader, Clair’s passion, perception and strategic thinking has elevated brands such as Randstad, Trinity Mirror Digital Recruitment, Huntress and most recently Broadbean, into the hearts and minds of each of their audiences. Clair works to ensure marketing best practice is a fundamental part of a successful business strategy and regularly presents on brand management, employer branding, recruitment marketing and technology trends.

From agency to RPO and everything in between: the key role of smart technology in scaling organisations

Tim Jones, Head of RPO & Partner Consulting, Lumesse
  
Agencies are evolving to offer a much broader spectrum of services to clients – is their recruitment technology able to adapt?
What are the key technology issues which recruiters face as they scale up their offering?
Our experience – how we’ve helped our clients succeed as they grow and change

Tim first used HR technology back in 1997 when naive products couldn't meet the greedy dreams of a young recruiter excited by the new internet enabled workplace. Since 2015 he has worked with Lumesse RPO & BPO customers operating a variety of recruiting units, talking and sharing experiences with global customers, advising them on leading practices and challenging their existing systems to invigorate their teams to greater success.
