Happy New Year!
I hope you are feeling refreshed and re-energised for 2016. I know we have been a little quiet, but that has been a good thing. We have been working on how to have the most impactful start.
So in the spirit of new beginnings I am very proud to be a part of WIN League's First Hires / First Fires event next month on Thursday 11th February 2016.
HVO Search hosts regular roundtable discussions and private networking events with leading industry experts.
If you are interested in participating in or chairing one of our panels, please send us a short overview of your experience and what expertise / opinion you would like to share.
Happy New Year!
