The Headhunter’s Perspective with Jan Hall
Awarded an OBE in 1996 for services to the Department of Trade and Industry and fêted with being on the Woman’s Hour power list, Jan Hall was for many years regarded as one of Britain’s leading headhunters. She founded the highly successful JCA Group in 2005, having previously been a senior partner at Spencer Stuart.
In 2018 (after selling JCA to Heidrick & Struggles), Jan stepped away from direct headhunting to start her own consulting business, advising boards on strategic succession planning and performing Executive and Board Effectiveness Reviews, as well as coaching and supporting the development of top executive teams and boards.
Jan will give a unique perspective on the NED world, based on her experience as adviser to the leaders of many of the world’s major companies. She will tell members what does and doesn’t work when approaching headhunters, what really happens to those CVs that are simply “filed in their databases”, and what candidates should read into the “you came a close second” messages. One not to miss!
