Powered By Talent business conference to take place in Belfast next month

  • The Powered By Talent business and HR conference will take place in Belfast next month, with a list of speakers presenting on the challenges of attracting, developing, and retaining talent.

    Abacus Recruitment is running its Powered By Talent business and HR conference again this year following the success of last year's inaugural event. This year's event will take place on Wednesday 22nd May 2019 and has been expanded into a packed all-day schedule filled with talks from local industry professionals as well as high-profile international speakers.

    The conference is expected to be attended by around 500 people in the business and HR sphere, and hopes to highlight best practices for the attraction, development and retention of staff across a wide range of business sectors, including the booming local tech sector. The event will also include interactive discussions between business leaders and attendees.

    Powered By Talent founder Justin Rush explained the need for discussion on the topic of talent attraction, saying: "Talent attraction and retention remains one of the biggest challenges businesses face. We have seen the emergence of Northern Ireland as a powerful economic force. With innovative indigenous businesses growing rapidly alongside increasing inward investment from some of the world’s leading companies. The issue of talent and how we leverage, develop and promote best practice in our talent has never been more important."

    Powered By Talent is a ticketed event with prices from £225 per person and will be held in Belfast's International Convention Centre on Wednesday 22nd May 2019 from 8AM to 5PM. The list of guest speakers has also been announced, including entrepreneur and dragon investor Lady Chanelle McCoy, SmashFly CEO Thom Kenney, and motivational speaker Debra Searle MBE.
