Event Speakers


Cindy Lynch

Talent acquisition

No one sets out to hire low performers, but somehow, we end up with more than a few. In today’s world, resumes are professionally written. “How to Ace the Interview” videos and blogs are everywhere. Experience isn’t an indicator of future success. What seemed like a Rock Star during the interview, turns into a poison apple in the organization. What happened?

People are complicated, but a good hiring process doesn’t need to be. In her presentation, Cindy Lynch of Six20 Partners will share an objective process to attract and select the best talent you can afford, with effective — scalable — interviewing, hiring and onboarding strategies.
