Agenda day 1 | Talent 2013 @TalentChallenge

Over 200 senior HR and Talent professionals joined the 5th annual Talent conference on the 3-4 July 2013. Thank you to everyone who made it. It was an informative and compelling 2 days, hearing from over 40 fantastic speakers, great insight and involvement coming from the roundtable discussions and networking between peers and with innovative solution providers. The masseurs were a bonus too!

Over 85% of attendees said this event was ‘excellent’ or ‘good’, over 90% of expectations were fulfilled and over 95% of you will attend again next year when we’ll be back for an even bigger and better multi-streamed HR event, this time with over 100 visionary speakers and over 400 top calibre attendees!
