To compete successfully for the talent you want, a strong social recruitment strategy is essential for most markets and industries. But is it the answer to all of recruitment’s issues and what does it involve? A poorly thought-out strategy can do more harm than good so considering the variety of channels on hand and exploring how to best use them should top your ‘to do’ list before you reach for the newest, flashiest social media tool in the box.

A group of the industry’s leading lights will debate this issue at a panel-led discussion on the evening of 24th January and members and guests of the London HR Connection are invited to come along and join the debate.

Our panel consists of several industry leaders with strong insights and opinions and includes:

DeeDee Doke is the editor of Recruiter, the UK’s leading recruitment publication. In her time at the print and digital title, she has led the development and launch of Recruiter’s Investing in Talent Awards, the 11 Most Influential In-House Recruiters, and Recruiter’s FAST 50 and HOT 100 league tables. She was recently named the British Standards Institute (BSI)’s Emerging Standards Maker 2016 for her contributions at the international level to sustainable ReRworkforce standardisation.

Robert Stone is the Group Head of Talent at McCann Worldgroup, one of the world’s leading advertising and marketing firms. Robert has also held senior digital recruitment roles with the likes of adidas in Germany.

Rebecca Clothier is the recently appointed Talent Acquisition Manager at the food, snack and beverages multinational, PepsiCo, where she is responsible for talent acquisition of commercial & head office functions in UK, Ireland and Nordic. She

was formally the resourcing Manager for Carnival UK (P&O Cruises and Cunard) and DHL.

Catalina Schveninger is Global Head of Resourcing and Employer Brand at Vodafone. A graduate of GE’s HR leadership programme, Catalina spent her first decade in HR in various divisions of the international conglomerate. A period spent as the HR director at T-Mobile in the Netherlands introduced her to the telecommunications world and subsequently led to her first role with a global remit at Vodafone in 2014.
