The Future Talent SummitGlobal thought leadership on talent strategies in a changing world
27-28 June, 2016
The talent landscape has dramatically changed for new college/university graduates and young professionals. Fewer students graduate with the skills needed for today’s global workforce. Universities are challenged to produce graduates with different skills and mindsets in order to meet the demands of employers.
The Future Talent Summit will bring together the world’s thought leaders on this topic for a discussion around the future of global talent attraction.
University Presidents, Senior University leaders from the faculty, Dean’s offices, and Career Management of both undergraduate and advanced degree programs, will come together in this inaugural conference to discuss how we can adapt, change, and innovate as the world and talent landscape change around us.
Universum is uniquely positioned as a global nexus between universities, talent and employers, which provides us the unique opportunity to bring together these various constituencies together for learning, benchmarking, and networking in a meaningful way.
