Human Resources is delighted to announce Michael Wright, head of talent acquisition for GroupM, as a speaker for our premium regional conference.
At the Talent Management 2013 two-day conference, Wright will present an intriguing case study titled Death of the Resume and share an overview of the new selection format by GroupM and its effectiveness in recruiting talent.
GroupM is WPP’s consolidated media investment management operation, which serves as the parent company to agencies including Maxus, MEC, MediaCom, Mindshare, Catalyst and Xaxis.
“Talent acquisition is a full-contact-team sport,” said Wright. “We don’t talk about it often enough in Asia. I’m here to change that.”
Wright, nicknamed by friends and colleagues as the ‘Blunter Headhunter’, said he is “obsessed” by all things related to talent.
“Michael is a force of nature when it comes to talking about talent,” Rebecca Lewis, editor of Human Resources, said. “We are very excited to have him present at Talent Management 2013 and his addition to the talent acquisition panel discussion is sure to provoke some great conversation.”
Talent Management 2013 will be held from 12-13 March at the Novotel Clarke Quay in Singapore.
