As a veteran Talent Scout of nearly 30 years, Patti has followed one belief throughout her entire career. Relationships, relationships, relationships. The key to her success as an executive recruiter has been building strong relationships and trust with not only external talent across the globe but also internally with her client group. “Its all about the people, both internally and externally. How you bond and connect with them will set you apart from your peers and the external competition”. Learn to build trust, strong, honest relationships for immediate and future needs. Help your talent team make the personal connection.
