Whatever the size, a business making a bad hire can be a costly exercise. Not only financially, the impact (and in particular to a start up or SME) can cause havoc to the business model, internal relationships, project delivery, time lost through the recruitment process – the list goes on!


The purpose of this session is to help those wanting to build their team. Regardless if you are looking to make your first hire or if you are expanding, this session should give you some guidance as well as practical tools to make sure that you can define what and who you are looking for, where and how you can find them and finally, how to ensure that you attract and secure the talent.
