Welcome to my presentation, Talent: The Secret to Being World Class.
My name is Chris Roebuck, and I advise a wide range of organisations on how to maximise performance through their people. For example, some of them include the UK National Health Service, global legal and financial firms, UK and European not for profit, government agencies, and a range of other organisations. I'm a conference speaker, business school lecturer, writer and researcher. Previously, I was Global Head of Talent Management for UBS, the Swiss-based global bank, and the strategic alignment and culture change project there enabled by the talent strategy is now a Harvard Business School case study and won several global awards. As a result of what we put in place there, UBS also won the top company for leaders in Europe 2005. I've also held senior HR roles in London Underground, KPMG and HSBC. And I have been an officer in the British Army and later presented on Leadership at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.

It will allow you to understand the importance of talent management and development and how it can be made effective. It will show you how you can implement talent management and development in your organisation, department or team. It will help you understand the behaviours that your organisation will be looking for from you to see if you should receive accelerated development or promotion. And it will allow you to take more responsibility for your own development and career advancement when you understand the process.
