This was originally published on the Telstra Careers Blog – a place to find out what’s happening in the world of work and Telstra.

About a week ago I shared with you my involvement in LinkedIn’s Talent Connect Conference – where I presented on Telstra’s employment brand journey, as well as connecting with my peers in the industry, and exploring best practices in talent attraction and acquisition.

I ended the blog with a quick summary of Peter Baines’ (Founder of Hands Across the Water) lessons on authentic leadership and its impact on achieving results. Peter has played an instrumental role in managing the response to some of the most confronting natural disasters and acts of terrorism. He shared his personal accounts of the Bali bombings and Boxing Day Tsunami in Thailand.

These stories alone would have made for an enlightening and inspirational experience, however Peter also shared some amazing lessons on authentic leadership and its impact on achieving results; lessons I’ve already begun to apply in my work and personal life.

Here are ten of Peter’s lessons that resonated most with me. (more…)

I attended the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) conference for the eighteenth time in April this year. As I walked around the buzzing Las Vegas convention hall, the renewed energy among broadcasters was palpable. I could sense the urgency among large media entities. They came to the show knowing they have a problem to solve and they’ve got to solve it now.

Three big questions formed the underlying themes –  and the broadcasters who can successfully figure them out will be the ones that survive in five years time! (more…)

It must be one of the business world’s most widely used calls to action – “We must make the customer the centre of everything we do!” The reason it is, of course, is that it is absolutely right. Nothing is more important. But for all the passion and conviction put into creating genuine customer focus it is frustrating when we get it wrong. (more…)

This was originally published on the Telstra Careers Blog – a place to find out what’s happening in the world of work and Telstra. 

Recently I had the privilege of speaking at LinkedIn’s Talent Connect conference in Sydney, which is an annual gathering of global leaders in talent acquisition. Over two days we explored how to leverage best practices of marketing, analytics and technology to re-imagine the ways organisations find their top talent and how professionals find their dream jobs.

The topic I covered was the role of employees as brand ambassadors; to help attract and recruit high performing talent. I shared with the audience Telstra’s journey of employment brand transformation and the approach we’ve taken to changing the external perception of Telstra as an employer.

I thought in this blog, I’d share with you some key insights on our approach to involving our employees in our brand journey. As well as insight I gained as a participant in the event. (more…)
