9.45 – 10.45 Keynote Speaker #1: David Savage, Group Technology Evangelist, Harvey Nash Group – “Everything Changes But You”
Are recruiters, the agency world, and internal teams keeping pace with the technology changes happening in the world around them? Drawing from views, opinions and examples from his pod cast, David Savage shows that while sectors such as healthcare and education have embraced machine learning and data to augment the way customers/users digest information, some recruitment practises have failed to make the same changes. Savage discusses products and innovations that are making an impact and giving organisations a USP over the competition at a time when brand matters less. Given the value of these innovations, why aren’t they being adopted more widely? There’s no denying that Gary Barlow writes great pop-ballads. He did it in the 90s and he does it now… but it’s been a while since he had a real hit record. If recruiters want to stay top of the pile, it’s time they adopted to the trends and tech available.
