The Talent Management Challenge

Speaker - Professor Andrew Mayo

18 May 10 - 4pm 15Hatfields, Chadwick Court, London, SE1 8DJ


"Talent management is on the agenda of nearly every organisation, public or private. The definition and scope of what we include as ‘talent’ however is very variable. The key processes of talent planning, resourcing, development, and retention are well known – but what does it mean to do these in an integrated and strategic way, rather than being merely reactive? And how important is a shared culture of talent nurture to the success of these processes?” Andrew Mayo will discuss an integrated framework for identifying and managing talent, and provide practical examples. The session will be fully interactive with opportunity for discussion and inter-organisational learning.


Who will benefit from the Master Class?

All HR practitioners especially HR Business Partners, OD and Talent Managers and L&D specialists.
