The Future of Creative Talent

New roles, new skills, new talent: where will the UK’s creative industries find the talent to keep it at the cutting edge? Come and hear from some top creative employers at the latest SohoCreate Connect event

Finding the right people with the right skills is an ever greater challenge for all creative businesses. Is our education system providing graduates with the right mix? If not, is it down to employers themselves to up their training game and develop their own talent?

The latest SohoCreate Connect event will look at The Future of Creative Talent. Katie Lee, managing director of ad agency Gravity Road; Lee Schuneman, studio head at Microsoft Lift; Amy Smith, global head of recruitment at Framestore and Claire Anderson, group head of talent at  The Mill will discuss the new roles, skills and demands on creative talent today and reveal how they go about discovering the right people to work for them.

It all takes place on Thursday, February 25 at the Century Club, 61-63 Shaftesbury Avenue, W1D 6LQ, from 6pm.

Tickets are free to SohoCreate Connect members, and £10 to non-members. Details here
