Going it alone as an Independent Director
The Great British Workforce Revolution conference is a must-attend event for Independent Directors, value-added Business Angels and cashed-out entrepreneurs who are interested in finding out how to prosper in the ever-evolving Independent Executive recruitment landscape.
In light of the recent discovery that nearly half of the UK working population are not full-time employees - thus being left almost entirely to find their own work and their own contracts - this Conference aims to understand, explore and seek out the opportunities available to this increasingly popular dynamic of independent working.
The Great British Workforce Revolution conference is the only live event in the UK focused on bringing hundreds of senior level executives together in one day and in one place, alongside the key influencers in the executive recruitment industry. Come along to hear from industry experts, gain educational insight, participate in exciting debates, enjoy quality networking and hear from some excellent keynote speakers.
This year's event will be taking place on 3rd June at Dexter House, No 2 Royal Mint Court, Tower Hill, London, EC3N 4QN.
This year we are offering the option to purchase a 1:1 consultation with a Russam GMS Principal in addition to your ticket. This session may include CV help, career planning, sourcing NED and Trustee work, and/or an introduction to Interim Management work.
£25 of the ticket price for these consultation sessions will be donated to the Multiple Sclerosis Society. This charity directly supports cutting edge research to help find a cure for this terrible disease.
The Great British Workforce Revolution - 3rd June, 9.00am-5.00pm
