Winning the battle for global talent.
As the race continues globally to find and attract the best talent, Ireland today finds itself competing with an ever-growing number of countries, for the best candidates in science, technology and finance. The solutions will be examined at the Future Jobs Forum, hosted by Silicon Republic.
International keynotes will offer a global view, while our panels of local leaders will discuss Ireland's challenges and opportunities in the global battle for talent. The objective of this forum is not to simply sit around and complain about the much cited 'talent gap', but rather to bring together the stakeholders in education and industry to propose constructive and viable solutions to help Ireland to compete and win in this global battle for talent.
