sylvia-martinI had the great pleasure to hear and meet Katrina personally at the Global HR Innovation Summit in Barcelona. She is not only an expert in her field but also a vibrant and entertaining speaker. She easily navigates from “The one click application – to personalise your approach to the candidate to – Snapchat as a recruitment channel”. She provides insights into how to find the candidates with the rare skills by broadening the scope of social media channels to use. You also hear on how to approach candidates in an attractive way. For everyone being challenged finding the right talents I can highly recommend to take one of the trainings Katrina offers.att_logo_2005
