Sir Richard Branson to Keynote Talent Connect 2016
August 17, 2016
Talent Connect – what’s been called the recruiting conference of the year – is kicking off this October 5th in Las Vegas.
We are excited to announce that this year none other than Sir Richard Branson, the legendary entrepreneur, will keynote the event. Branson will share his inspiring personal story as well as his thoughts on the importance of talent to companies’ success.
And you may say that Branson knows a thing or two about talent. He has launched and nurtured over 400 companies as part of his Virgin Group empire and he credits their success to one thing:
“There is nothing more important for a business than hiring the right team. If you get the perfect mix of people working for your company, you have a far greater chance of success.”
In fact, Branson is a firm believer in something which all talent acquisition leaders hold near and dear to their hearts – company culture.
“At Virgin, we’re known for our culture, and our culture is solely determined by our people. Our people are our greatest asset and the lifeblood of the brand, and are therefore crucial to the success of our businesses. They are what keep us relevant and ahead of the game. To make sure we continue to deliver a standout company culture, we make hiring our number one priority.”
This is just a quick glimpse into how hiring the right talent has fueled the success one of the most remarkable businessmen on the planet. To hear more from Sir Richard Branson, join us at Talent Connect in Las Vegas on October 5-7.
