Barry Brown, Jigsaw Solutions Group

Wednesday, 10-45 – 11.30 am

During an interview every candidate can usually provide an answer to the questions he asks.   BUT through experience and practice in asking the right questions and understanding the body language that is displayed alongside the answers, it is possible to detect when a candidate is not necessarily answering with honesty and integrity!

Barry will pass on some techniques and tips he has learned and developed that will help you to improve your interviewing skills and help you make better hiring decisions for your business.

With an extensive career in the recruitment industry, Barry has interviewed and assessed many 1000’s of candidates from administrators through to CEO’s of multi national corporates.
