Topic: Values driven recruitment - attracting people with passion

Speaker: Philippa Fabry, director of the not for profit practice at Peridot Partners

Recruitment is often a challenge for civil society leaders, especially when it comes to senior positions. It is often hard to specifically identify what characteristics are indispensable for a certain role that will drive the impact that CEOs seek. Even harder is to know if a candidate has these qualities at interview and if they are able to incorporate them in their daily work routine.

Philippa Fabry, director of the not for profit practice at Peridot Partners,  has extensive experience in recruiting senior roles for diverse organisations and an understanding of the transferability of experience across sectors. Philippa will offer insights and practical recommendations on how to:

  • Attract and secure the right leaders
  • Identify qualities like courage, vulnerability and empathy
  • Overcome challenges in attracting the right leaders to accelerate growth and change
