The Engage London 2019 Line-Up Levels Up (Again!)

Bullhorn Engage London


With Engage London 2019 on the horizon, it’s not long until the largest recruitment conference in the UK is upon us to bring industry professionals together to focus on “The Power of People”. What better way to do this than with knowledgeable and inspiring speakers?

We’ve already confirmed five fantastic industry professionals and thought leaders you can expect to hear speak at the event, and we’re delighted to announce five more – plus a very special guest! Read on to find out more:

Dr. Marcia Goddard

Dr. Marcia Goddard is a Neuroscientist currently working at &Ranj. With a master’s degree in clinical neuropsychology and a PhD in social neuroscience, Marcia works to build bridges between science and business and how to build stronger partnerships between the two.

In 2015 Marcia won FameLab, a science communication competition, whilst working as an Assistant Professor. This drove her to pursue a role that would allow her research to have a more tangible influence on people’s lives. In 2016 she joined YoungCapital, one of the Netherlands’ largest recruitment agencies. Marcia formed a Science & Innovation team that drives innovation within the company.

Most recently, Marcia has joined &Ranj, where she is responsible for incorporating science into their way of working and conducting studies to assess and improve the effectiveness of their products. Marcia’s breakout session at Engage London 2018 was a roaring success (standing room only!) so be sure not to miss her session this year for valuable and innovative insights to help you transform your business.
