The Global Chamber is co-hosting an important debate with reesmarx.
This is a debate on education necessity (4-year+ degrees from colleges), and we will not be speaking of Doctors, Engineers, etc. …this will be focused on more business-minded roles (ie Sales, Marketing, Operations, Finance, etc.).
Moderator: Ericha Hartz – Global Partnership Director at reesmarx.
There will be 4 speakers broken down into 2 teams:
- Team 1: Pro education making better candidates
- Yvan Demosthenes – Recruitment space
- Milo Skene – Global Expansion and Networking SME
- Team 2: Education is not a necessity for understanding someone’s ability in a role
