Talent[ed] has helped me understand the real needs of the business and how to be a strategic partner that not only has a positive impact on TA but also helps the business grow and transform through intelligence-led, proactive talent sourcing. Switching from being a talent leader who understands business, to a business leader who is an expert in talent is something that I wish I had been taught years ago.

Talent[ed] has been brilliant because it's helped me compartmentalise all the different areas of talent - something that can be really overwhelming. It gives you 5 really solid areas to focus on. There's nothing else like this and I was really impressed just how quickly I could put everything I learned into practice in my role.
