So 2020 is drawing to a close and you're seeking to hire. As a seasoned executive search consultant and professional coach I am regularly asked by employers and executives what are the optimum events that could lead to career change. Typically executives that are in the greatest demand are highly respected within their organization and industry alike with their career paths on the ascendency, consistently overachieving relative to their KPI's.
Having commenced my career in 1996 I have found professional inspiration to come in many forms and was recently alerted by an executive placed 13 years ago, to remain thankful for the effort made to secure his interest in career change. Noting that he remains with the same Big 4 banking organization, I was reminded of the extraordinary effort my client went to in order to secure his coveted signature.
Having spent the formative years in this profession establishing Reach and cutting my teeth in Australia, my wife and I decided to embark on a return to HK to be a lot closer to her family. Having spent 4 jolly interesting years in this city pre-hand over, I took solace in the fact that I was returning to my comfort zone.
