Great morning of learning about the hunt for tech talent, found Tushs talk great and really informative. Learnt so much and a great network event

by Laura McGrory on In-house Recruitment

Really great round table discussions with lots of networking opportunities. I would happily attend another event. I really enjoyed that it was not focussed on sales as I have been to events in the past where it just feels like the main aim is to have you engage in a product or service, This was not like that which I felt really heightened what we could get out of the session as delegates.

Very useful and informative. Massive subject area where either of the two round table exercises could become the focus for a future event. Thank you to all involved in arranging.
