I am rather proud to be a Life Member of the RCSA in Australia, an accolade awarded to very few industry veterans who are judged to have made some contribution to the staffing industry in Australia and New Zealand.
I often wonder how I sneaked in to this august group, and so I am delighted that the RCSA have asked me to speak at a series of breakfast seminars in all major Australian and New Zealand cities over the coming months.
The topic is a challenging one. Below, an extract from the event marketing blurb
“Riding the Recovery”
Greg Savage Seminar on how to thrive in 2010
Having survived four recessions and benefited from the recovery on each occasion, Greg Savage will present his thoughts on how to prepare for the recovery, and what steps you need to take to benefit from the opportunities that will emerge as hiring demand starts to surge.
This session will be a fascinating blend of facts, forecast, tips and tricks, designed to give you real strategies to survive a depressed economy and to thrive as the market recovers.
Greg will share what steps you should be taking right now to position yourself for success, and he will also explore the many pitfalls and errors typically made by recruiters and business owners as the good times begin to roll again.
It’s hard to focus on ‘the recovery’, when many recruiters are battling just to survive, but it is something we should all be thinking about, because when the upswing comes, we will presented with a range of fabulous opportunities. Opportunities to increase market share, grow margins, acquire new clients, sell new services and scale to new heights in terms of billings and profits.
But not everyone will have the resources, the know-how or the energy to take advantage of a rebounding market, so a session on how the recovery might play out, and how we can prepare, might be very welcome.
But I am asking for your help!
What I am looking for is your input as to the content of the seminar. What’s scaring you about the business environment right now? What’s changed that you are not sure how to deal with? What specific question do you have regarding how to equip yourself for the upswing?
If you live in Australia or New Zealand, you will hear your issues addressed at the seminar in your city. However everyone is welcome to send in questions because I will post my thoughts on the most compelling issues on this very blog.
Simply post a comment at the end of this blog post – or if you prefer – drop me an email at email@example.com
In the meantime mark your diaries and contact the RCSA to book your attendance.
