Executive Search Events – Workshops, Webinars and Conferences
The 2017 World Executive Search Congress, Oct 9-10, London, UK
Each year, the World Executive Search Congress aspires to deliver on three main premises: to provide industry insights, to inspire new ideas and to create unparalleled international networking opportunities that turn into lasting new business relationships. Excellent feedback from past attendees describing the event as “a superior learning opportunity”, “impressive”, “thought-provoking” to name just a few, encourages and challenges us to create ever more impressive content to deliver on these principles.
This year our challenge is even greater – encouraging news about growth in Executive Search activity so far this year is overshadowed by the impending new data privacy legislation (GDPR) that will dramatically change how Executive Search firms – and corporate recruiters – store business-critical information. There will be a special session addressing the new rules and the specific implications for the Executive Search industry followed by a panel discussion that will dive deeper into the topic.
The 2017 World Executive Search Congress brings together the best and the brightest from in and around the global Executive Recruiting world. An anticipated audience from 20 plus countries – including delegates from both Search firms and in-house teams will be joining external consultants and commentators – to make this the not-to-be-missed international executive recruiting event of the year.
Internet Research Techniques for Executive Recruiters
The course is designed to teach Executive Researchers and Consultants basic Internet search skills (including basic Boolean commands, X-raying to search through websites, using People Search Engines and automating your searches) and advanced techniques such as finding email addresses and contact details, lists of people, how to source candidates from Facebook and Twitter, how to search through all elements of a webpage and much more!
PLEASE NOTE: These training sessions are open to ALL Executive Search firms and will NOT require any FileFinder system knowledge. The training sessions will only cover Internet research techniques. FileFinder clients with a valid support or SaaS contract will receive a 10% discount – please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a PROMO CODE.
NEW DATE: Friday 12 May 2017 (9:30-11:30am London time)

The 2016 World Executive Search Congress, Sep 26-27, London, UK
Demand for executive talent is growing and the search industry has returned to revenue growth. However, while fees are rising clients are increasingly using external firms for only a subset of assignments, while building internal teams that handle increasing numbers of executive searches. This means, for a Search firm to be successful, it needs to demonstrate superior performance – consistently. Corporate search teams are raising the game, and external firms need to react.
