The Executive Research Revolution: AESC Announces #ExecResearch Forum in London

Research teams from top executive search firms in the UK, Europe and beyond will convene for AESC's Executive Research Forum on March 22, 2018 at London’s St. Ermin's Hotel.

AESC Global Chair, Paul Benson of Korn Ferry, will open the event sharing insights on the executive search profession in an era of widespread disruption and lightning-fast change.

Clare Mahon, AESC Managing Director for the Europe & Africa region, will guide participants on the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and its impact on the role of executive researchers. The session will cover how, when, and why research teams solicit, use, access, and store personal data, as well as determine legitimate interest and consent of candidates, sources, and referees.

Kelsey Froehlich and Ekaterina Tomashchuk of Mintz Group, a global leader in due diligence and investigations services, will lead an engaging session on uncovering potential issues through smarter research.

American expert trainer to global research teams, Rachel Roche, will take participants through an interactive session on new strategies and concrete methods to maximize every moment of the candidate conversation.

Vera Klaus of Phoenix Executive, a recruitment research company, will lead a hands-on session on best practices for the mapping of organisations. The session will cover various ways to generate quality organisational maps, including internet research and cold-calling, and the importance of telephone research and referrals.

Laura Stoker of AIRS, a world leader in recruitment training, will examine the changes taking place with professional networking sites, demonstrate other options available for finding candidates, and share fast sourcing ideas to make locating candidates off the beaten path easier.

Karen Greenbaum, AESC President and CEO, commented: "AESC Forums provide cutting-edge professional insights in a dynamic, non-competitive, interactive environment. The focus is on sharing best practices, emerging research techniques and tools, and different approaches to the challenges faced by today's executive research teams.”

AESC's event is sponsored by AESC partners AIRS, The Cluen Corporation, Invenias, Mintz Group and Phoenix Executive. To learn more about AESC's Executive Research Forum, or to register, please visit the AESC website at www.aesc.org.
