Katherine Ray - Be the CEO of your career

Do you find yourself in a career cul-de-sac? Would you like to take control of your development? Are you struggling with a clear vision for your future career?

We are cobblers children; we spend more time focusing on other people’s careers than our own. Now is the time to take action and start being the CEO of your career.

During this 30-minute session Katherine will look at the key components of a future-proof career in a world which is requiring us to work longer and to constantly reinvent ourselves. She will look at some beliefs about careers and explore some tools and techniques to enable you to create a vision for your career.

Talent Nexus: How can you use video to solve your recruitment problems and activate your employer brand?

In this session, Rob Prince from Talent Nexus, will help to demystify recruitment video, providing specific examples of how using video content will help you to achieve your recruitment objectives. For a long time, video has been held back by either being too expensive for the majority of employers; or created internally with amateur-level kit and rarely with a defined strategy. Now top-quality, professional video is more accessible for employers than ever before. In the session you will:

  • Gain practicable insights about how to use video effectively
  • Find out what works and what common mistakes not to make
  • Learn how to deploy effective video at different stages in the candidate journey
