RCSA Executive Networks



Alongside our membership offering, RCSA oversees two executive networks for agency executives seeking to drive growth in their recruitment business.


Both provide the opportunity for recruitment professionals to cover off industry best practice in facilitated peer learning environments.

Talent Executive Network (TEN)

Grow and succeed with the TEN

Now in it's second year, the TEN is an initiative designed by the RCSA to allow Recruitment Leaders to learn from peers and to drive growth and success within their business.

Groups of 10 will come together to discuss business, industry and executive development in a high-trust collaborative environment.

The TEN’s will be curated to promote open and supportive discussion where diversity and new ideas will be promoted and respected.

Groups will be made up of individuals from a variety of business sizes and sectors, and while care will be taken to avoid direct competitors being grouped, constructively challenging dialogue will be encouraged.

Within the TENs you will grow and succeed as part of an intimate community of leaders.

What's Involved

  • Individuals who express interest in joining a TEN will be provided with an application form which will ask a range of questions so that RCSA can bring together great leaders in their own TEN
  • Groups will then meet once per quarter to drive their own business, industry, and executive development
  • Meetings will be facilitated by an independent facilitator who will guide leaders through collaborative discussions
  • There is annual fee of $1250 + GST to partake in the TEN

Talent Operations Network (TON)

Stay on top of operational best practice with the TON

The Talent Operations Network (TON) is a new initiative, inspired by the RCSA Talent Executive Network, to allow Operational Leads within recruitment agencies gain insights around best practice to drive growth and success within their organisations.

Groups of approximately 10 will come together to learn about industry issues and how to best maneuver their people and processes to respond to these challenges.

Each session will be topic led with key operational themes covered by our expert facilitators to promote open and supportive discussion where diversity and new ideas will be promoted and respected.

Groups will be made up of individuals from a variety of business sizes and sectors, and while care will be taken to avoid direct competitors being grouped together.

Within the TONs you will share invaluable operational insights as part of an intimate community of leaders.

Themes the TON will cover will include Strategy, Growth Expectations, Financial Reporting, Key Staff, Systems & Processing, Legal & Compliance, Structural and Valuation.

What's Involved

  • Individuals who express interest in joining a TON will be provided with an application form which will ask a range of questions so that RCSA can bring together complimentary individuals
  • Groups will then meet once per quarter for presentations and discussions on Operational Best Practice
  • Meetings will be facilitated by an independent facilitator who will present and drive discussions in the TON
  • There is an annual fee of $1250 + GST to partake in the TON

Our Executive Network Facilitators

TEN Facilitator - Tony McGinn OAM, The McGinn Partnership

Tony founded his media business at age 22. Over 33 years under his leadership, the organisation grew to operate three businesses with 150 staff covering six offices across Australia, Europe, and Asia.

All three companies shared a common denominator; they were B2B sales-driven businesses. In 2007 he listed his group on the ASX via an IPO.

Tony sold his business in 2016 and decided to 'step change' his life. That change saw Tony become a CEO & Business Owner Coach working with individual leaders and facilitating leadership groups.

He also launched The McGinn Partnership; a firm focused on fixing an age-old problem for business.

This problem was Tony's biggest frustration over more than three decades in his businesses, and in most of the companies he was working with around the world; the problem of productivity and accountability in Sales & Business Development. Drawing on his extensive first-hand experience of working with many different international 'Sales Training' resources over past years, Tony spent all of 2017 deep in research and engagement with business leaders, educators and sales and BD teams.

His focus was on a solution that would address the 'cause' of the problem, not just the symptoms.

The McGinn Partnership have developed a holistic Performance Protocol™ for Sales and Businesses Development that transforms the capability and performance of Sales and Business Development teams.

A highly successful leader who built and ran a business that thrived and expanded in the competitive media industry, Tony brings unique and new insights to leadership and business growth, insights from his deep experience through the lens of the CEO.

TEN Facilitator – Winsome Bernard

After 15 years working in recruitment in the UK and Australia, Winsome founded the Sydney based recruitment company Quay Appointments in 1994.

Over the following years she built it to a turnover of 60 million dollars per annum, and in mid-2019 was successful in selling Quay to a large international firm.

Winsome now brings her leadership, management, and customer care experience to her new business consultancy with the benefit of hindsight and fresh eyes.

Winsome has learnt much from the experiences of migrating twice in her life, building a business from the ground up, and navigating it through 25 years and three markets downturns.

She brings resilience and the knowledge that no obstacle is insurmountable, that everything is fixable, that every problem has a solution and that success is defined by what you give not what you get.

Knowing the numbers is vital.

Measure every aspect of the business. Keep good records, create a history, set targets, and the goals of the team will have a solid realistic base.

Importantly, the aim of providing exceptional client experience with a customer focus ideology must run through every part of a business. It is what drives us; it's why we turn up.

Winsome is passionate about building high performing teams, providing equity of opportunity, and leading an inclusive and diverse group - one where caring is part of the organisation culture.

Now she is excited to share that passion with others.
