Guess what is on the top of a global strategy agenda? Attracting global talent.

The main hall of the Old Stock Exchange Building in Copenhagen hosted on May 7th an impressive number of people who came to take part in an inspiring discussion on Global Talent & Trade. The audience, formed of LinKS Alumni and members of the Women for Sustainable Growth (W4SG) network, actively participated in the discussion led by the panelists. Some of the issues discussed were related to career, talent strategies, mobility and the executives’ roles in discovering talent.
