‘The Power of the Network’

Jo Taylor,
Head of Learning, Internal Diversity Strategy and 4talent, Channel 4 Television

Jo, an experienced television professional believes that ‘The Power of the Network’ is a phrase which has never been more important, indeed it is now more important than what you know and this has never been more prevalent in the key challenges that businesses are facing in recruiting, developing and nurturing their employees.
