About this event

Behind every successful creative business is an effective team. However, finding and landing niche talent can be frustrating, overwhelming and unpredictable. There are many dead ends, unmotivated candidates and unreliable service providers, yet you still need to get the job done and hire the right people to grow your business.

If you’re looking to hire key team members for your startup (e.g. head of marketing), our Zoom Dive session with Maria Hvorostovsky is for you. In this hour-long discussion, you’ll discover the importance of selecting the right hires for your creative business and how to go about the process of recruitment.

Expect to hear:

  • How to hire the right people (first time) to help your business grow
  • The key steps in the hiring process and the challenges you’ll come across
  • The most common hiring mistakes and how to avoid them
  • What happens when the hire goes wrong!
  • How to hire confidentially (when you can’t advertise)
