13 JUNE: Sharing on IT Talents by Cooptalis 

cid:image005.jpg@01D2DA00.3110DE90Did you ever wonder where to find the right talents for your company?

Organisations are becoming more dependent upon people because they are increasingly attempting to function in economic, political and sociocultural environments that are heteroclite. Hence, the more different technical skills are involved, the more vulnerable the organisation will be to critical shortages of the right kinds of talents.  The crucial character of human capital requires recruitment to be more innovative than ever in order to meet the requirements of modern companies and attract the best talents.

 

Cooptalis is a leading international mobility operator based in Europe and Africa. It focuses on the acquisition of IT talents and provides turnkey international recruitment services.

 

Ms. Anaïs Veerapatren, International Development Manager of Cooptalis is inviting you to participate in this interactive session, to learn more about IT skills in the EMEA region- more specifically from Southern and Eastern Europe, North and West Africa, and on how Cooptalis is able to meet and recruit them. Come and hear about the new solutions that Cooptalis has designed for its clients!

           How to craft and refine your “elevator pitch” to explain your business to anyone, anywhere

           What investors want to hear and how to speak to them

           The art of media relations and how media can be an ally (or an adversary) to your business

           Which stakeholders you should consider as your business grows, and how to communicate with them effectively

Please click HERE for registration.  
Due to limited resources, we reserve the right to select participants of the workshop. A confirmation email will be sent to the successful applicants. Please feel free to contact Mr. Declan Siu at declansiu@cyberport.hk / 31663704 if you have any enquiries.
