Event Speakers


Kathleen Quinn Votaw

Founder & CEO, TalenTrust

Your approach to hiring is all wrong

A recent issue of the Harvard Business Review states: Businesses have never done as much hiring as they do today. They’ve never spent as much money doing it. And they’ve never done a worse job of it. Kathleen Quinn Votaw of TalenTrust will outline key findings from the HBR issue, offering expert context and clarification for executives of middle-market companies. Leave with best practices to:

  • Fix the strategies and tactics failing most firms.
  • Find the right balance of recruitment and retention.
  • Shift focus to quality over quantity in building candidate pipelines.
