Sean Anderson

A former school teacher turned successful recruiter, Sean Anderson is the CEO and Founder of Hoxo Group – a startup that consists of both an inbound marketing agency and a recruitment agency, with the shared group mission of ‘helping Recruitment Agencies Grow’.

Originally looking to set up a Recruitment Agency, Sean wanted to produce content daily to amplify his brand and drive clients ‘Inbound’ whilst in his inevitable restrictive non compete period. This idea then led to an exploration of the wider recruitment market and, in early 2017, he decided to build a team and create an Inbound Marketing Agency exclusively aimed at helping other Recruitment businesses produce content to drive Inbound business growth.

At Engage London Sean will consider how digital media can improve both the candidate and client experience.

Julia Randell-Khan

Julia is a fellow at Stanford University’s Center on Longevity, working on an inter-disciplinary project –  the “New Map of Life™”- and the transformative changes needed to address the challenges and opportunities presented by longer lives. She is an active promoter of the value that experienced workers at 50+ can offer to the social sector as part of an encore career.

Julia’s own transition is from 30+ years in international law firm practice and management at (now) Norton Rose Fulbright and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer to a career as a longevity entrepreneur and encore career advocate.

Julia’s innovative track at Engage London will consider older workers as an underutilised talent source.

Brian is from a process improvement and IT background before moving into the world of recruitment. 3 years ago himself and Louise Allen took Allen Recruitment down a path of building efficiency into their recruitment processes so that they would be in a position to scale the business and move into different markets/locations.

What started out as a summer of change ended up being 3 years of taking one step forward, two steps backward, two steps forward, etc. It is only this year that the people, systems, and processes are in place and the real scaling has begun. Brian has many war stories and advice that he can share if this is a road you are planning on taking.
