BritishAmerican Business to Explore Future of Talent and Leadership with Innovation Conference
New York, NY – BritishAmerican Business (BAB), the leading transatlantic business network, aims to drive the conversation of the latest trends in the ever-evolving global talent landscape with its “Innovation Conference: The Future of Talent & Leadership,” alongside Title Sponsor, executive search firm, Witt/Kieffer. The conference is slated to take place on Thursday, June 23 at the law offices of Sullivan & Cromwell located in Manhattan’s Financial District.
Focused on the issue of talent as the core motivator behind fueling the innovation engine, BAB will convene experts from an array of industries within its membership for a one-day conference to address: 1) building a diverse, innovative team, 2) measuring and growing innovative leaders, and 3) the case for adapting business to demographic and generational shifts. Each of these three topics will be addressed in their own panel-style discussion in conjunction with a keynote address and Oxford-Style debate.
“If there is one facet of business that has experienced disruption it is in talent acquisition”, said BAB Managing Director, Wendy Mendenhall. “Some companies’ approach to hiring has become their competitive advantage in the global marketplace, and I am proud that BritishAmerican Business is at the forefront of one of the biggest issues that affects every industry.”
“Our clients have relied on Witt/Kieffer for 45 years to identify [talent] with the best mix of skills, experience, vision and character to fulfill their mission,” says a representative from the Conference’s Title Sponsor firm. “BritishAmerican Business brings our discussion into a modern context, and we are proud to be collaborating on this topic.”
Of note, Swatch Co-Inventor, Elmar Mock, will be delivering the conference’s keynote address, “Redefining Organizational Culture”. BAB members, Angela Mortimer and Willis Towers Watson have also joined on as sponsors of the conference, together with speakers from Witt/Kieffer, Bank of America, Bloomberg, Broadridge Financial Solutions, Dirigo Advisors, The Guardian, Instinctif Partners, J.Walter Thompson, Lloyds Bank, McKinney Rogers, New York Natives, Northern Star, Out Leadership, Sullivan & Cromwell, TruthCo and YSC.
