With people flying in from Brazil, Germany, Belgium, Japan, Singapore, India, … a good night’s rest was welcome, to prepare themselves for 2 busy days.
As always, the conference agenda was a mix of operational matters, innovation topics, ENEX strategy and interesting keynote speakers. On Thursday we had the formal introduction of our newest Partner: HR Dimensions from India. Managing Director Vicky Kalara, founder in 2001, gave all partners a proper introduction. Another important highlight in the further global development of ENEX!

With plenty of coffee at hand, the meeting starts with a discussion about further global communication and marketing. After that, the Belgian Partner, Mentorprise, gives a presentation about the impact of A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) on HR and on Search and Recruitment in specific. One of the highlights that day was a presentation of our Brazilian Partner Talenses Executive: “Women and business”. In specific, the equal chances women do or do not have in business around the world. An important subject that is in line with the values and norms of ENEX and in which we all wish to take a positive lead.
