About the Event

As in many parts of the world, Covid-19 has hastened changes in the talent landscape and exacerbated skills shortages in the Middle East. Employers are now fighting for talent and skills not previously considered. As we come out of the pandemic, talent leaders have a huge opportunity in this region to redefine their strategies in order to find – and keep – the right talent and build diverse, fair and inclusive companies. 

On 3rd November we’re bringing together senior industry leaders to connect at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Dubai to share knowledge and source solutions to their talent challenges. This fast-paced event will combine insight from senior talent leaders and solution providers delivering insight, experience and expertise through punchy presentations, panel Q&A and roundtable discussion 

The event ends with our popular networking lunch on the stunning terrace to give you the opportunity to reconnect with peers in a relaxed setting. 

Speakers & Topics

The overall event theme is how to build successful and inclusive organisations of the future. A broad range of topics will be covered including attracting the best talent, developing your employer brand, engaging diverse talent, creating a better candidate experience, assessment, using the right technology, automation, using data, onboarding and more – all feeding into the overall theme.

Tickets are complimentary for senior HR and TA leaders, recruitment directors and industry leaders from a variety of employers, staffing and RPO businesses operating in the Middle East. If you are a supplier, please contact andy@talint.co.uk for sponsorship and ticket information.
