Mike Walsh demonstrated an action plan for HR leaders in his keynote presentation. He explored the model of the 21st-century business and what it would take to attract, manage and retain the kind of people business leaders would need to make that vision a reality.
Emma Reynolds delivered a presentation with workshop on why HR managers should think like marketers in dealing with candidates and staff. “Every candidate is a potential customer and every customer is a potential candidate. But most companies treat candidates without differentiation. They don’t allow them to express their creativity nor care about the candidate experience. Candidates are now rejecting that,” she says.

Everything is changing. All the traditional industries we grew up with – media, communication, finance, professional services and retail – are all in the process of being turned upside down and re-invented. The force behind this revolution is not technology but rather consumer behaviour. After all, as interesting as it is when things change, the real magic happens when people do.
