Emerge 2021 is APSCo Australia’s inaugural full-day conference for recruitment industry leaders.
Join us in the heart of Sydney’s CBD at the stunning Mint to hear the insights and perspectives of experts, influencers, and peers across key topics impacting the recruitment industry.
Learn from leading IR specialists, independent legal advisers, in-house counsel, and business leaders around how best to navigate the complexities of looming legislative change, how D&I is closing the talent gap, as well as a frank look at the roles tech, media, and innovation play in successful talent attraction.
Combining lively panel discussions, audience Q&A and key presenters, the day will conclude with a networking cocktail event and a chance to put your hands together for our 2020 Award winners.
Emerge 2021 brings together a full day (8 hours) of executive-level learning for recruitment and professional staffing personnel.
Our presenters and panelists, all experts and leaders within their chosen discipline, will be addressing the issues and challenges facing recruitment and professional staffing leaders in 2021, and as identified by APSCo - legislation change and talent acquisition. Attendees will be encouraged to help shape the discussion throughout the Conference with ongoing Q&A.
