Global Connect Conference in New York

Pinnacle Search Partners, LLC & SpenglerFox Launch International Business Seminar Global Connect In NYC

 Seminar attended by top global and regional business leaders 

Pinnacle Search Partners, LLC, and SpenglerFox, an EMEA Talent Consultancy global boutique executive search firm, along with their other affiliates recently hosted an international ‘Global Connect’ seminar in New York City as part of their Knowledge Exchange series.

This event was an exclusive invitation only business seminar that brought together top business leaders from the region and abroad to discuss the global landscape and opportunities within talent to enable growth in emerging and developed regions.

Global Connect offered a forum for guests to share their knowledge and experience in different markets and regions where they operate while also gaining knowledge from industry experts from Africa, Asia, Canada, Europe, Latin America, Middle East and US. The event was kicked off by Mary Elizabeth Sadd, Founder of Pinnacle Search Partners, LLC, and Peter Szabo, SpenglerFox, who discussed the essential elements of a good fit between candidate and company. They identified consideration of the cultural element as being vital.  According to Peter and Mary Elizabeth, “Moving people from one organization to another is not straightforward – the cultural part is extremely important and should not be underestimated.”

The event included an overview of the talent and business situation across global markets, presented by representatives from Africa, Middle East, Eastern and Western Europe, Latin America, Asia, Canada, and the US.  Each representative presented a general overview of each marketplace as well as highlighted the intricacies of each market around culture, talent and business dealings.  Additionally, there were featured guest speakers including Tom McGehee, from Brand Velocity, who is a published author, speaker, and thought leader on improving organizational execution through collaboration, and Bob Ryan, an Executive Coach from Shields Meneley Partners who was a former Global VP of HR who has more than 35 personal moves, inclusive of 6 International relocations.

Bob Ryan presented and shared his views as to what it takes for the International recruit to go from candidate to successful employee in the first 100 days. He also talked about bringing internationally recruited candidates to the US, sending US talent abroad, and the elements involved in a ‘real’ global search. Mr. McGehee discussed Professionalism, Passion and People – Unleashing the right person to achieve more!

The Knowledge Exchange series was established by SpenglerFox to offer business leaders the opportunity to gain an insight into the global talent landscape. The forum is interactive, allowing business leaders the chance to discuss best practice and ideas with other group members, while being mindful of the overall talent landscape.
