Talent Leaders Connect

Talent Leaders Connect is the largest Talent Acquisition & HR event series in the UK & Europe. The events combine industry leading keynote talks, interactive discussion sessions and relaxed social networking opportunities

The Event

talentleadersconnect is the largest recruitment industry event series in the UK and mainland Europe: a cross between a structured conference and a social meet up.

Emerging Talent is not void of the many changes taken place over the past year. Plugging the skill gaps with EU workers is under threat from Brexit and the apprenticeships levy poses to fix that issue. Are graduate schemes at risk? As young people look for more than high salaries from work, is retention becoming more difficult? Can we do anything about it? 

If you got these questions and more, this event is for you.

  • An introduction into gamification and other ways to use tech to attract and retain candidates

Michael Lake started in recruitment at the start of 2010 in the City of London, recruiting finance staff into top global law firms working for Adecco. In 2012 he went “in house” recruiting across Europe, the Middle East and Africa for Discovery Networks International. Since joining L’Oréal in October 2014, Michael has been tasked with increasing talent acquisition across Europe as part of the group’s drive to recruit highly talented and qualified candidates for the “Emerging Markets”. Referred to at L’Oréal as the Global Candidates initiative. This initiative primarily involves partnering with top business schools in the region who are educating experienced people from those markets to help find them opportunities after graduation, as well as identifying and headhunting experienced profiles through traditional means. Since September 2016, he has also been working on a project to reimagine L’Oréal’s Management Trainee programme to create a new global model for the group.

Alex joined L’Oréal from Bath University as an intern in 2011 working within the Graduate Recruitment space and was subsequently appointed to the permanent role coordinating graduate activities. After a short spell outside of the Company at the BBC in 2014 Alex returned to L’Oreal as the HR Officer within the HR Retail team working with the Beauty Consultants and field teams. In 2016 Alex was appointed as the Graduate Talent Manager for L’Oréal UK&I, bringing a wealth of knowledge of the graduate arena, an expertise in assessing graduate talent and the passion to drive a creative programme of activities with a social and digital steer.
