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.

Presenter: Simon Mullins, Partner, ESIX

10.00am                      Break

10:15am          The Search Process

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 overview of how talent is identified and reeled in at search firms and by in-house search teams.

Presenter: Simon Mullins, Partner, ESIX

12.00pm           Lunch & Discussion

1.00pm            Candidate Assessment

We discuss tactics and resources for the all-important task of evaluating executive candidates: what works and what is practical, and engage in an interactive learning session with an expert who has spent over 18 years selecting and developing executive leaders for clients such as Starbucks, Hilton Hotels and Capgemini. His company’s candidate assessment systems are used by a number of boutique and global executive search firms as well as corporations around the world. Guest: Charlie Atkinson, CEO, HFI

2:15pm             Break

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                                   

 4.00pm           Adjourn for the day … and join us for a social hour

9:30am            Case Study in Direct Executive Search: TD Bank

Few leaders have had the experience of starting up an in-house function and then taking it to the next level of sophistication. Over the last 8 years Kristin Steiner, Head of Enterprise Executive Recruitment at TD Bank, is one of that rare breed and will share with us what she has learned along the way.
