“Emerging markets are becoming the new centers of gravity for the global economy, and competition for talent is becoming fiercer almost by the day. Access to talented workers is considered by some as the top indicator of a country’s competitiveness.” (Deloitte, 2013)

Following the outstanding success of practitioner/academic seminars held in Australia collaboratively with The University of Queensland Business School, The Center for International Human Resource Studies (CIHRS) at The Pennsylvania State University together with St. John's University proudly invite industry executives and managers to attend a complementary seminar dedicated to addressing multinational’s challenges of talent management in emerging economies.  

This will be a unique opportunity to hear from renowned executive practitioners and academic experts in the field of global talent management and emerging markets. The speakers, Mr Kevin Owens (Senior Vice President of Human Resources for Siemens PLM Software), Mr Gregory M. Garger (Executive Director, Labor & Employee Relations, Textron), Mr Rafael Colorado (Global Product Director Cloud Client Computing, Dell), Professor Mary Yoko Brannen (University of Victoria, Canada), and Professor David Collings (Dublin City University, Ireland), will share cutting-edge thinking, research and practice on the issues affecting talent management for globally-operating organizations.
