Dart Lindsley & Gareth Flynn
DAY 1 10:30am
Now is the time – repositioning the Talent & HR industry
What are they key areas you need to become an expert? What are the skills you will need?
The timing has never been better, and this is a golden opportunity for Talent and HR to reposition ourselves as designers of “work-experience products” that will enable us to enhance our value to the business.
Dart is the head of Global Process Excellence for Google People Operations. Previously he was head of Business Architecture for HR at Cisco Systems.

Dart routinely writes and speaks on the topics of innovation, collaboration, talent operations, strategic planning, and virtual facilitation, including two articles in the Journal of Corporate Recruiting and a handful of speaking engagements at ERE.
