June 27, 2024

Another episode from our exclusive London event —where we gathered 20 of the area’s top recruitment movers & shakers for panel conversations, Q&As, and some good old fashioned networking.

In this session, we dive into some important topics within the realm of business development and strategy — from taking calculated risks, to knowing when to put an idea to bed. We also touch on how, when you know your niche, you’re able to leverage more “human-centric” hiring approaches, like skills-based hiring. In short: it’s a jam-packed episode with lots of expertise being shared.

Given the fact that this was recorded live at an event, you may notice that the sound quality is not at our standard level — we apologize for that, but certainly think this content is still well worth a listen!
