Last week, Fuel50’s FuelX Career Experience Conference returned to Sydney! Hosted at the Sheraton Grand Hyde Park Hotel, FuelX Sydney was a fantastic celebration of those creating best-in-class career experiences for their people.
Thank you so much to everyone who was able to join us in person. Thank you to those who tuned in to the live stream across the globe! And, of course, extra special thanks go to all of our incredible speakers, who shared some amazing insights throughout the day.
First in the line-up, Jo Mills Co-Founder and Chief Experience Officer at Fuel50 kicked off the event with a warm welcome to all. This was followed by a brilliant presentation from Fuel50’s Co-Founder and CEO Anne Fulton. Anne talked about “The New Talent Economy” and shared some key insights on the changing nature of the workforce. GM People & Culture at RWWA Matthew Thomas then presented “The Tale of a Digital HR Ecosystem: RWWA’s Story”. Matt highlighted how implementing Fuel50 has impacted people’s career development at RWWA.
Next to take to the stage was our featured keynote speaker, Josh Bersin. As always, Josh delivered some outstanding insights into what we can expect from the year ahead with his “Talent & HR Predictions for 2020”.
All in all, FuelX Sydney provided a wonderful opportunity for learning and a fantastic chance for us to celebrate best-in-class career experiences together. We are so grateful for our amazing community and look forward to seeing you at the next FuelX Career Experience Conference to come in 2020… Stay tuned!
Here are a few of our favorite key highlights from FuelX Sydney:
- “Hiring technical skills is 6x more expensive that training in-house.”
- “Fuel50 is the next generation of what we used to call ‘talent management’.”
- “Leaders having career conversations with their people is what matters.”
The future focus is corporate capability academies and the highest priorities are digital, cyber, engineering.
- “We want our employees to be able to see their career pathways.”
- “Feedback can give you insights into either what your blind spots are, or what your unknown strengths are.”
- “There is always going to be that need for us to connect with someone on a daily basis.”
