Executive Researchers are the bedrock of any reputable Executive Search firm and their ability to identify and develop top talent underpins the success of every executive search project.

Carol O'Driscoll, Director of Archer Search and Executive Search professional with over eighteen years international search experience working on senior level assignments across all sectors, is a Trainer at The 8th Research Practitioner - Skills Day taking place on the 14th of March in London.

She has successfully developed various learning and development courses and implemented them across the world. This is what she had to say about her session at the upcoming event:

“When I was European Head of Research for a global executive search firm, we developed a programme that embedded Competency-based Interviewing (CBI) into the research process from getting the brief, identifying potential candidates, sourcing, approaching and screening. This was successfully implemented on a global basis.

Competency Based Interviewing can make you: more efficient, more productive, more consistent, more insightful and consequently more profitable. By attending this session you will be able to apply CBI to your daily research work and be more effective as a result.”

Sessions at the event include:

Starting Your Search (Francesca Lahiguera) - Breakout Session  

Francesca Lahiguera has spent 16 years in the executive search industry, including a number of years at Heidrick and Struggles and several years as a trainer for search-consult

Ask the Experts! - Q&A - Joint Session  

The day will end with a joint session whereby the three facilitators will utilise their knowledge and experience to answer questions from the audience.  This will be a great opportunity for attendees to find solutions to the challenges they face day in, day out.
