The Executive Search and Human Resources communities' news source, search-consult, is proud to announce its inaugural Asia-Pacific Conference "Executive Talent in Asia - A Global Perspective on the New Battleground" that will be held in one of the world's finest hotels, The Island Shangri-La, in Hong Kong, on November 6-7, 2007.

This two-day forum will provide valuable learning and networking opportunities for distinguished leaders from both Western and Asian organizations, experts from the Corporate Recruiting/Human Resources Community and prominent Executive Search Consultants who want to address the best ways to win the latest battlefield that is emerging in the war for talent.

This high-flying event will begin with a reception, followed by a tasty dinner and lion dance with an after dinner presentation from Tony Tyler, Chief Operating Officer at Cathay Pacific.

The second day will be filled with thought-provoking topics, addressing the latest developments that are affecting the search industry in Asia as well as globally. Some of the keynote speakers include: Nancy Garrison-Jenn, prominent author about the executive search industry; Peter Wright, VP HR, Refining & Marketing for BP; Ronnie Tan, Regional Director Asia of DDI; Roland Ruiz, Head of Compensation for Hay Group Asia: Peter Haddad, Talent Acquisition Executive at Lenovo; Francis Tong, General Manager, Human Resources for Hutchison Port Holdings; Linda Downs, Head of Resourcing, HK, China and North East Asia at Standard Chartered Bank; Michael Murphy, VP, Human Resources at Philip Morris Asia Ltd.; and Cindy High-Fischmann, HR Director and VP, Greater Asia Region for Eastman Kodak Corporation.

A series of panels have also been organized: the first is "The Needs of the Multinational"; the second is "Regional Differences in Recruiting" and the final panel is "Behind closed doors", which will bring senior executives from both sides of the recruiting community together to discuss the latest burning issues.

In addition, search-consult has arranged a number of optional workshop sessions focusing on topics such as "Best Practices in Search Firm Management and Branding" and "The Insider's Guide to Selecting and Managing Search Firms".
