Opening Keynote Presentation – FLIP! Creative Strategies for Turning Challenge into Opportunity and Change into Competitive Advantage
The GFC changed the recruitment industry forever. Our keynote speaker, Peter Sheahan believes that it is in the change and turmoil that our greatest opportunity for profit exists.
Or as he says, the real money gets made in the cracks. In this case study rich and highly entertaining session, Peter will challenge you to:
- Embrace change and break free from thinking that made you successful in the past, but could undermine your success in the future
- Re-think competitive advantage and look to how you can leverage intangibles to manufacture brand-based points of difference in the market
- Improve your margins by driving non-sexy innovation, and finding new and better ways to do what you do
- Drive collaboration inside and outside your 4 walls and harness the discretionary efforts of people on and off your payroll
