Ellis is bringing the future of effective talent acquisition to you

It’s a recipe for talent acquisition success: Take two parts marketing and branding experience, one part recruiting and talent acquisition thought leadership. Add a dash of fearlessness and a willingness to breaking unwritten rules. Shake well and serve in the funniest container you can find.

James Ellis isn’t your average speaker. He brings wit, energy and humor to subjects you might expect to be dry. He combines years of experience helping everyone from Fortune 10 companies to 12-person agencies understand their own employer brands, activate them, and connect them to their investment in recruitment marketing. Then he makes it interesting and funny while still being valuable and actionable.
