Thriving local businesses and organisations depend on our capability to attract, recruit and retain rangatahi and young people from our communities. The employment market is increasingly competitive. So what can we all do differently to be more successful in broadening horizons and growing our local workforce?

He brings practical tools and evidence from around the world, and is an engaging speaker and facilitator.
