Bleeding Green

Vincent O'Donoghue, COO, Social Talent 

  • What separates a good company from a great company? The answer is its people
  • We all know that the war for talent is fierce, but just because candidates are in high demand, it doesn't mean that organisations should ever have to settle for second best - Vincent will discuss how Choice, Passion and Culture are the three key pillars for determining who the right candidates are for your organisation
  • Vince will also cover how to integrate them into your Talent Acquisition strategy

Vincent began his career as an Assistant Director on some low-budget horror movies including such "classics" as Knocking on Death's Door and A Very Unlucky Leprechaun. He then decided to get a real job and moved into Sales and Account Management positions within the ICT industry with British Telecom in Ireland, and Digicel in the Caribbean. On returning to Ireland he established a recruitment agency and ultimately Social Talent with Johnny Campbell. Since then the company have turned nearly 15,000 recruiters from companies like Microsoft, Intel, GE, Manpower, Randstad and Adecco into Sourcing Ninjas. The company's platform is used in over 90 countries by more than 1,000 companies and their blog is read by nearly 100,000 recruiters a week.
