About the Event

Join us on Friday 17th September 2021 for our TALiNT Advantage: Emerging Talent Summit.

New talent, in the form of graduates, apprentices and Kick Start applicants, is entering the workplace after a bewildering year of remote study, cancelled classes and exam disruption.  That does not mean they don’t know what they want to do next – this is a focused, driven and ambitious generation who see beyond existing working methods and has embraced a rapidly changing landscape. 

These candidates are your future workforce, leaders and C-Suite executives – how can you be assured they want to work for your organisation? 

We will be hearing first hand from our expert speakers on how they are driving success in emerging talent. 

Speakers & Topics

New entrants to the workplace have left education in the middle of a pandemic. It will be more important that ever to provide a great landing experience as they come into the workplace, whether as a graduate, apprentice or school-leaver.

We will be hearing from emerging talent experts on their own experiences of creating, planning and delivering an exceptional experience for their early career hires.

Who Can Attend?

Tickets are complimentary for senior HR and TA leaders. If you are a supplier, please contact andy@talint.co.uk for sponsorship and ticket information.

  • Learn a lot, be inspired – a wide range of topics are covered with expert speakers sharing analysis, insight and knowledge covering the full spectrum of issues relevant to talent acquisition and management, ensuring you’re energised and full of ideas.
  • You’re in good company – participants are all senior professionals involved in hiring.
  • Share your challenges and knowledge - with engaging Q&A and discussion opportunities.
  • Meet relevant suppliers in a collaborative environment for advice and market insight. We curate our sponsoring partners to ensure their solutions are relevant to what you do.

"Excellent event. I would thoroughly recommend it. Some of the insights offered by the speakers were very useful. The variety kept things interesting throughout the course of the day. The round table discussions were useful and I thought provoking. The organization was impeccable. I will be signing up for more events in the future."
