future[inc] Future of Talent Paper, Auckland Launch Event – 20 February 2018

Talent, or at least the skills we think of as being desirable for tomorrow's talent to possess, is changing. In business and elsewhere, technical skills are being overtaken by the human touch - by the problem solvers, the creatives and the communicators.  

The Auckland launch of our latest future[inc] thought leadership paper - the Future of Talent - will include a keynote address from Greg Savage, Global recruitment industry leader and spokesperson. Greg will then join a fantastic line-up of panellists to discuss the paper including:

  • Dr Julie Harrison, Senior Lecturer in the Department of Accounting & Finance at the University of Auckland Business School
  • Marisa Fong, Co-founder of Madison Recruitment 
  • Russell Windsor, Partner, People & Culture Leader, PwC

The panel will be facilitated by Peter Vial, NZ Country Head for Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand.
