Global Talent Conference

MARCH 1, 2016
Navigating Change

The Global Talent Conference is known as one of Edmonton’s premium events for Internationally Educated Professionals (IEPs) who are looking to connect with and be inspired by leaders from the Edmonton business community.

For the sixth year, Edmonton Region Immigrant Employment Council (ERIEC) will hold its 2016 Global Talent Conference on March 1, 2016 at the Fantasyland Hotel & Conference Centre at West Edmonton Mall.

The goal is to bring business leaders in the Edmonton community and skilled immigrants who have successfully found employment to provide support and advice to recent foreign trained immigrants who are looking for work in their professions. We believe that developing a set of skills to manage change in difficult times for economy is essential to employment and integration of IEPs. That is why this year’s Conference theme is Navigating Change.

The Edmonton Global Talent Conference is a cost free, one-day event.
