Posted about 1 year ago by Shnayde Murphy

Pitch are delighted to announce that we’ve been invited to talk at The UK Marketing Network Midlands conference and next in the series of the highly regarded IPA Creative events.

Our very own Ollie Purdom will be taking centre stage at both events to present insider information regarding best practice and talent acquisition. As co-founder of Pitch, Ollie has over a decade of specialist recruitment experience; he's developed an intuitive ability to spot talent and is our point of call for senior and board level recruitment.

Ollie's commitment to the marketing industry and to the development of tomorrow's talent saw him awarded Birmingham Young Professional of the Year 2009 in the Training and Recruitment category and has also helped us to win Best Marketing Recruiter of the Year for three consecutive years at the MiAwards. To say that Ollie knows what he’s talking about when it comes to specialist recruitment, is something of an understatement!

The UK Marketing Network conference will see Ollie presenting 'Marketer 2.015: The Demands That Innovation Places On The Modern Marketer' to speak about the changing face of marketing skill sets and the challenges of talent attraction and retention; he will also advise on how to build a team that supports innovation and the growing importance of a strong employer brand - essential knowledge for employers, from HR to CEO. 

Creative Birmingham is a series of events that aim to bring together the creative industries in Birmingham to debate and learn about business success and talent transformation. In the creative industry employers go to great lengths and expense to identify, interview and hire exceptionally talented people - naturally, retaining them is a top priority too! Amongst an exciting and varied speaker panel, Ollie will offer insight regarding the retention of key employees, how to encourage marketing professionals to reach their true potential and add commercial value to your business.

These events intend to examine the good retention practices that employers are using, exploring the different ways to support, develop, nurture and engage good people - aboslutely vital in today's marketplace.
