Hosted in partnership with Giant Group, TALiNT Partners hosted an invitation-only dinner brought together the most influential Chairs and Board Advisors in recruitment to debate the crucial role of Non-Executive Directors (NEDs) in navigating the shifting landscape of talent acquisition.

The event, held at the Marylebone Hotel in London, provided a platform for advisors to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing recruiters in today’s dynamic market. As the expectations of both candidates and employers continue to evolve, recruiters are tasked with adapting their services to meet the demands of a rapidly changing industry.

Amidst a backdrop of cautious investors seeking optimisation of technology, data, and analytics, board leaders and advisors are expected to possess the expertise necessary to drive innovation and deliver value-added services. The discussion delved into the ways in which NEDs can support recruitment leaders in differentiating their solutions, understanding specialisation, and personalising services in an era where AI is levelling the playing field.

Key themes emerged from the evening’s debate, highlighting the importance of transformation, clarity on AI’s practical applications, and the imperative to adapt to changing client demands.
