Robert Kenward

Robert has worked within the recruitment and events sector for over 17 years and explored the world of hiring from all angles – namely as a candidate, a client and a recruiter.

This has helped him gain some much-needed perspective when evaluating how to solve hiring challenges and after becoming increasingly frustrated with the usual transactional, cookie cutter approach to recruitment led him to set up an independent recruitment consultancy specialising in placements within the Live Events, Experiential and Integrated Comms sector.

He helps companies attract and RETAIN talent by matching people with people as well as skills with job descriptions, by practising his Fitability® model and having an in-depth understanding of the events industry, having worked at a senior level within a full service live events agency, a market leading global experiential agency and a large scale global travel, meetings and events business.

Robert will be moderating “What will the art of recruiting and retaining event industry talent look like in 2019?” at 10.15am in Knowledge Suite 1
