Future Talent LIVE founder & CEO Jim Carrick-Birtwell opened our inaugural conference with a call to employers and educators to work more closely in delivering better careers provision for young people.
Introducing the aim of the event – to support an information exchange between education and employers and to help bring the world of work to life for the younger generation – he explained that a better and more varied transition from education into employment can only be achieved through greater connectedness between these two worlds.
Jim is CEO of Future Talent LIVE, a venture wholly owned by the award-winning media business, Changeboard, of which Jim has been CEO since its inception in 2004. It provides a suite of event and content-based products about the future of work for senior HR professionals.
He was concurrently CEO of Plotr CIC between 2012-2016, a government-backed careers inspiration platform for 11-24 year olds, and is a passionate supporter of education-to-employment initiatives.
