10.45 – 12.00 PM | Sourcing Candidates Through Unconventional Means

In today’s increasingly global and competitive talent market, the usual sourcing techniques will not necessarily produce the best results. Relying too heavily on LinkedIn will produce the same lists as anyone else. This session will look at creative ways to uncover interesting and hard-to-find candidates via the Internet. Session taken by Dutch sourcing expert, Sandor Lokenberg, People Sourcing Crew.

12.00 – 12.45 PM | Panel: The Future for Executive Research: Millennials, Technology, and Disruption

1.30 – 2.45 PM | Telling Your Story: Creative Techniques for Candidate Engagement

This session with Professional Comedian and Improv Instructors, Steve Roe and Katy Schutte, explores the Basics of Improvisation and how those principles translate to the executive search profession. Participants will learn the art of first impressions, how to make and maintain strong conversations, and how staying present in the moment can lead to stronger business relationships. By using fun and interactive improv games and exercises, the group will tackle remedies for addressing the sometimes generational, cultural, and varying experience levels road blocks they may face when initiating professional conversations.

2.45 – 3.00 PM | Getting the Most Out of AESC Services for Researchers

Kelsey Goggin will provide an overview of AESC services for researchers and associates including: the Certified Researcher Associate program, BlueSteps, and the Certificate in Client Relationship Management.

3.00 – 3.15 PM | Afternoon Break

3.15 – 4.45 PM | Do you really know what you don't know? Best Practice in the Search Process

Do you feel you are an expert at developing the very best network to get you to the best candidates for your searches? What is your hit rate on people coming back to you? Are your clients always “wowed” by your short list? If not, why not? This interactive session, taken by expert trainer, Carol O'Driscoll, Archer Search, will explore best practice in the search process from a research perspective. We will review the best tried and tested techniques to be as productive, professional and proactive as possible and embrace new tips to make sure you have the most effective methodologies in your toolkit. Be prepared to share and engage in role plays to make the session fun and memorable.
