Using People Insight to build your Talent Strategy


June 14th 2017 - 0930-1430

This session will take you through the journey of our international customer from underperforming recruitment model to best practice talent acquisition delivering:

  • over 95% direct fill within 6 months
  • Six figure recruitment budget saving
  • Improved stakeholder engagement

Speakers from Cogito, HR and Business Leaders will take you through a talent transformation case study and highlight how a progressive HR team can make a real impact upon how an organisation views talent. 

Building from identifying what good looks like within the organisation to identifying talent in a competitive external market, this session will show how to use data to underpin Recruitment, Development, and Succession Planning programmes.

This is a must for HR and Business Leaders who want their organisation to improve the quality of talent and increase the return on talent investment.



 The power of storytelling to build and promote your Employer Brand


October 4th 2017 - 0930-1400

Cogito and our Expert Speakers will highlight the strength of storytelling in building your EVP and enhancing your employer brand. Using practical case studies and industry insight, this blend of presentation and round table discussion will enhance HR, Talent and Business Leaders understanding and help form clear thinking to support your cultural journey.

Our headline speaker, Oliver Strong, is a Managing Partner of Intelligent Emotion - specialists in internal communications, employee engagement and the critical (but so often mishandled) people side of change. His passion is helping organisations create a deeper emotional connection with their employees which then leads to sustainable and improved business results. With nearly 20 years employee communications experience Oliver has been trusted advisor to FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 executives, from travel, to property, to automotive and financial services. He has led global communications teams and has picked up awards along the way, most notably the Overall CIPD Winners Award while leading the global internal communications and engagement function at RSA Insurance.

In this interactive presentation, Oliver looks at why storytelling has moved from the nursery to becoming recognised as a vital business tool in many of the world’s most successful companies. In it he covers the science of storytelling. He then discusses how storytelling can both inspire the business change needed to make your employer brand a reality and attract the best talent to join you. He’ll then give you the chance to try out Intelligent Emotion’s simple but powerful storytelling framework for yourself. “Stories inspire action” is the powerful takeaway.
