Opening up borders to broaden views
Like every year, the Annual Conference of the AESC was held in New York City on the 15th and 16th of April where I met with the major companies from Executive Search / Head Hunting worldwide.
The AESC, the Association of Executive Search and Leadership Consultants, is international recognized and certifies the best practices for the industry and provides a unique ethical code that governs the conduct of member companies, so it is an honor for us to belong and participate in their conferences.
In practice, this international association (AESC,) incorporates a recognized group of Head Hunters using methodologies, equipment and work techniques that provide a service of quality, based on knowledge and intimacy of the client and the time to get involved in each company to be able to identify who is the real talent which the client needs.
The convention allows sharing with more than 250 companies of global prestige, in order to present and discuss current issues of business, new initiatives, market trends, innovations, best practices, cutting-edge services for customers, among other topics. In addition, this occasion allows for a live intercultural exchange of products from different market situations, economies, and a learning process that comes from being in contact with those who are proponents of this business.
Finally, I was pleasantly surprised how these trips can extend our local perspective to a global one and to be able to see in context what we are carrying out in Chile; it enables us to confirm that our efforts are on track.
One returns full of energy, with a fresh outlook, and with all the enthusiasm to continue with what was started and to improve it every day.
