1+1 Lecture Toronto: Entering the Digital Age for Talent Management

We cordially invite you to attend our exclusive 1+1 Lecture Entering the Digital Age for Talent Management in Toronto on August 8, 2019.

About the lecture

Talent within organisations has become increasingly scarce and the attraction, selection, and management of talent have become a vital source of sustained competitive advantage. However, the rapid ascent of digital technology is starting to transform the management of human resources. While most of these technologies and tools (i.e. artificial intelligence and big data) have been applied primarily to marketing and production functions, we will examine how this applies to people. In this lecture, we focus on the human resource trends and link it with innovation in China. We then explore the opportunities and dangers of digital technology and its potential transformative power in the area of talent management.

What is 1+1?

CEIBS launched the 1+1 project, a series of lectures hosted by leading faculty around the world, in 2017. The audience for these invitation-only lectures consists of alumni and friends of CEIBS. Each participant is encouraged to bring with them a ‘plus one’ who is also a qualified prospect for our MBA or Global EMBA programmes.

The core objectives of the 1+1 lecture series are to further strengthen engagement with our international alumni and provide attendees with the opportunity to play their part in helping to shape the future student body at CEIBS.
