He has won countless other industry awards, including European Business Writer of the Year and the Wincott Business Journalist of the Year the Oscar of Financial Journalism and the London Press Clubs Business Writer of the Year.

Greg Allen Head of recruitment, Nokia Daniel Whitehead Director of recruiting, Blackrock Ian Godstiff IT Vendor Manager, AXA UK David von Ackerman Executive Partner, Copernicus Global Partners Ltd
Ann Swain, Chief Executive of APSCo, comments: Securing Anthony Hilton as the keynote speaker is a real coup for APSCo. The business environment has changed dramatically since the credit crunch and there are very few commentators of the calibre of Anthony Hilton who can provide us with the level of insight to help drive our businesses forward.
Our theme addresses the paradigm shift that has rocked our world over the last couple of years. Even though there are positive signs from the recruitment market, there is no going back to the way things were. Client needs, procedures and expectations have changed and to thrive we must change too. Its a brave new world.
Following the address from Anthony Hilton, the early part of the day is split into three areas: the Management track, the Sales track and a CEO round table discussion which will allow delegates to focus on the subjects most relevant to them.
Among the speakers will be Colin Forster, CEO of sales training experts CDF Associates, Graham Smith, of the Mycroft Group, the acclaimed management coaching group, and Gavin Ingham, the published author and journalist, whose insight into sales and motivation have won him business from a multitude of blue-chip clients.
