Uncommon ways to find, attract and retain best talent in volatile times.

Why you should attend? 

In our region of Kitchener, Waterloo, Guelph and Cambridge, having the best talent in the right seats can be a real differentiator in driving business performance.

Finding, attracting and retaining great talent requires creativity, persistence and a thorough process.

Join us for a fireside chat with local leaders Jay Davis – Volvo / AWC Manufacturing and Carol Leaman  – Axonify CEO to address this important topic, and gain insights as to how local CEO’s are finding new ways to source and retain human capital… especially in uncertain times. The discussion is designed to provide a collection of real life, practical case studies in delivering growth, drawing on the experience of a successful CEO. 

The session will provide a confidential forum, for you to share insights and learn from other local CEO’s about real-life experiences in building teams, planning for volatile times and executing growth strategies when priorities change.  As a CEO in 2023, with shifting geopolitics, inflation at generational highs and the evolving battle for securing and retaining talent in our region, how do you prioritize what to work on to grow your business, and how do you then execute that plan? How do you leverage tools such as accessing new immigrants, targeted headhunting, building your employer brand and network and retraining for skills in a re-organization. In addition to insights, this session will give you connections and a sounding board of shared knowledge to apply in growing your business.
