If I had to describe the Recruitment Agency Expo at Olympia London in one word, it would be overwhelming. This is probably because it was my first time visiting the Expo, and also because there was so much to see!
I went to the Expo for two main reasons: 1) to support James Whitelock, ThinkinCircles’ MD, who delivered a masterclass of the up-and-coming trends of 2022 in the recruitment marketing space (the masterclass is available to watch in its entirety on the ThinkinCircles Instagram account); 2) to meet my colleagues in person for the first time (which was delightful as they are just as lovely in person as over Zoom). In that respect, I can say that I achieved my goals, but I also got to walk around and talk to several of ThinkinCircles’ clients, sponsors, and friends from Cobalt, Vocative, and StaffingFuture, to recall a few.
Working remotely means that most professional relationships are built and formed via email or the occasional Zoom call, but I don’t believe anything compares to real-life interactions. My favourite part was, therefore, getting to put faces to the names of the companies and people ThinkinCircles works with.
