Dan Kelsall - Being bold doesn't have to be offensive
A raw and real insight into what makes Dan Kelsall so successful at such a young age. Dan discusses how Offended Marketing came about, why you CEO is completely out of touch with your marketing. White middle aged men cannot connect with athletes as much as you CEO cannot connect with the candidates you place. Connecting with your audience doesn’t have to be offensive, but it doesn’t have to resonate. The odds are the means your CEO shouldn't be signing off on your marketing. Many of Offended's clients are nervous of their work, because it works. Offended isn’t set up to offend people, but to authentically connect with the target audience. More often than not, the general public forget why you offended them, big brands recognise that consumers forget. Small brands don't.

Daniel Fellows - Recruiters aren’t copy writers don’t expect them to be
Meet Daniel Fellows, Founder of Get-Optimal Content, an on-demand job advert optimisation service. From his experience at Indeed, Microsoft and Vodafone, Daniel has developed a platform to help develop the best job adverts for recruiters to bring in the right candidates. In most other industries adverts are built with the best in mind. Offering the best product, service and experience to customer. In recruitment job adverts have been forgotten, left behind while we are “doing well”. The industry invests millions into job boards to bring in candidates, but you are willing to post poor job adverts because job adverts are at the bottom of the priority list. In a candidate driven market this has to change. Looking ahead at the bigger picture, Indeed is going to cut over 50% of candidate traffic, now agencies are being reactive to source candidates not proactive. Recruiters cannot do everything, invest in saving consultants time so they can make more money. What Daniel is d…

Joanne Lockwood - Inclusions Is How We Make People Feel
This week on The Recruitment Marketing Podcast I talk to Joanne Lockwood, founder of SEE Change Happen and Diversity, and Inclusion and Belonging advocate in the recruitment industry. Recruitment is a industry inherently about excluding people. Getting 100 CVs down to 1. If you expect someone to cope because they are different that is your *privilege*, not their problem. Get over it and open your mind. I can’t believe I have to say this in 2019…We have become accustom to excluding people, but not including them. How you make people feel shows how far you are willing to go to include everyone. In a talent short market, we need to look outside of our norms and look past gender, sexuality, disability and everything else to hire the RIGHT people. Not those who match your current employees.
