Search must stay ahead of the game is message at World Executive Search Congress
RI heard a diverse range of search firm and in-house professionals speak at the World Executive Search Congress yesterday.
Simon Mullins, partner at Executive Search Information Exchange, kicked off the event at The Tower of London, discussing one of the industry’s most pressing issues, how in-house executive recruiting and external executive search firms can work together now and in the future.
