Companies are no longer happy with end-to-end talent management systems designed for HR – we now need platforms that help employees (and contingents) manage their owntalent experience at work.

Connecting People with Purpose – the Let’s Talk Talent Manifesto

Three and a half years ago I left the corporate world to bring colour to organisations through my own business. It was time for a change. In the world of big corporates, I felt I was becoming ‘beige’, and as you’ll read later, I believe life is far too short for beige!
