8:30am            How to Manage Search Activity & Improve Executive Hiring Effectiveness

We explore the evolution of executive recruiting, the challenges of competing for leadership talent and what kinds of corporate initiatives have been successful in managing search activity and improving hiring effectiveness. This includes the business case for an executive recruiting program and how to educate key players in your organization on their roles in making it work.

Anatomy of an executive search engagement - what really happens - and what hiring organizations need to know to make searches succeed. Here we take a detailed look at recruiting tactics and processes: a fundamental view of how talent is identified and reeled in at search firms and by in-house search teams.

Presenter: Simon Mullins, Partner, ESIX

1pm                  Candidate Assessment

2:30pm            Client Management

Managing the client, the hiring team, and the interview team takes some courage and ideally some experience – after all, these are very senior executives that we are dealing with.  However, there are some skills and tools that one can use to make sure that we’re in control of the situation, and to make sure this delicate process goes as smoothly as possible.

Presenter: Simon Mullins, Partner, ESIX
