It was a very useful event which offered a broad range of topics. — Head of Employer Branding, Merck KGaA

It was indeed a very valuable experience, please consider the feedback as ways to improve a conference that I would overall rate as very satisfying! The speakers were very willing to share their leanings, not only their best practices, which created the right atmosphere that did not only focus on bringing a ‘good news’ show. — Regulatory Advisor, Capsugel Belgium

A worthwhile event. I appreciated that many speakers focused on ideas and lessons that could be transferred to other companies, and I left with a handful of ideas that I am considering including in some way at my firm. — Director, Global Talent Management, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals
