On this mini TheEdge episode, ClearEdge CEO Leslie Vickrey shares her excitement for next week’s SIA Executive Forum! Among connecting with industry peers old and new, Leslie looks forward to hearing keynote Randy Street speak on The ‘A’ Method for Hiring challenges, and hearing how industry leaders are addressing the theme of this year’s event, “Future Forward.”  

Leslie is also speaking on a panel on Wednesday, February 28th from 10 – 11 am ET, discussing how “Future Forward” applies to marketing in the staffing and recruitment industry. The panel will also include Brian Hoffmeyer, GVP of Market Strategies at Beeline and Kristin Kelley, CMO of Marketing at Randstad, with Ursula Williams, EVP of SIA moderating! 

The panel will cover how technology, marketplace dynamics and opportunities within the recruitment industry have exponentially changed the role of marketing within staffing and recruitment firms today. Leslie will also cover how ClearEdge manages and leverages the myriad of diverse activities under its scope, including the difficult task of prioritizing what is key to achieving the annual plan and longer-range objectives.

We hope to see you at Executive Forum! We’ll be providing updates throughout the week, as will many other attendees, using the hashtags #execforum and #FutureForward. Join the conversation @clearedgemktg as we live tweet Leslie’s panel and share video/photos with the same hashtags.
