(PRWEB) January 30, 2014
John Davern, Jr., MBA, President and CEO of Virtual Assistant Talent, LLC, joins top talent thought leaders in the upcoming Executive Next Practice (ENP) forum, titled Global Strategy – Markets, Talent & Implementation Challenges 2014, to share best practices in overcoming outsourcing obstacles and workforce management issues using the latest tools and technologies.
In the recently released Global Online Employment Report by leading freelance marketplace, eLance, the 2013 numbers revealed a steady increase in the number of businesses that have adapted online outsourcing as part of their business strategy. Many reports have been released that share similar sentiments on the predicted growth of the outsourcing industry this year and for years to come.
“The recent advancements in technology have allowed outsourcing – particularly online outsourcing – to be available to anyone.” John shared, “This has made outsourcing available to, not only big businesses, but to start-ups and small to medium enterprises – the ones that could really benefit from outsourcing.”
As the founder of Virtual Assistant Talent, LLC, an outsourcing company that provides a variety of professional services through the use of Virtual Assistants, John has had significant experience in working with online outsourced workers and will be sharing best practices on how he and his clients have overcome obstacles in working with a virtual team.
“The common obstacles in workforce management can be narrowed down to these 3 areas: Communication, Connectivity and Collaboration.” John stated, “But these can be easily resolved through the use of the right tools and resources.”
John will discuss the Emerging Trends in Virtual Markets and Workforce Management as a guest speaker at the ENP forum on January 29, 2014 at the Academy of Television, Arts & Sciences in North Hollywood, CA.
The event features thought leaders representatives from over 35 global companies including Disney, Taco Bell, Dex, World Vision, B of A, Turkish Airlines, Experia, GALLUP, Mattel and many others.
