Chris Bones, Partner & Co-Owner, Good Growth Ltd will be speaking at the upcoming Onrec Conference and Exhibition on the 20th October 2015 in London.

Chris Bones is Partner and co-owner of Good Growth Ltd, a consultancy aimed at transforming commercial and organisation strategies to deliver superior top and bottom line growth over sustained periods of time. He is also professor of Creativity and Leadership at Manchester Business School.?? His latest book 'Leading Digital Strategy' was published this year (2015) and has already received considerable praise from senior leaders.
The school is one of Europe's leading institutions holding triple acceditation, a queen's award for enterprise and with its MBA programmes ranked in the world's top 10 by 'The Economist'.?? Prior to leading a business school Chris worked in Industry for 22 years in mainly HR roles starting in Shell, moving to GrandMet, Guinness (and after they merged), Diageo and finally Cadbury Schweppes.??
He was an independent director of the UK's Agricultural and Horticultural Development Board and chaired its Audit and Remuneration Committees, Chair of the Terrence Higgins Trust Board and Chair of the Supervisory Group of AIESEC International and a regular columnist and contributor to newspapers and magazines on management and leadership. ?He led the Reform Commission for the UK's Liberal Democrat Party in 2007/8.?? He acted as an adviser to the Hutton Commission on Fair Pay in the Public Sector and to the MacLeod Report on Employee Engagement and has advised the last two UK governments in matters associated with business, innovation and skills.
Chris shares his views and experience of developments within the market and highlights the key elements of good practice in presenting the employment brand online as well as some of the common pitfalls and mistakes that companies should avoid. He discusses the growing influence of social media within the market (for employers and for candidates) and stresses the importance of learning the lessons of e-commerce to develop the online recruitment offer.
For customer-centric businesses, there is now a real need for 'employment customers' to be handled as well as your business customers. This includes the decisions that employers make about how they automate the early stages of recruitment for employment brand and employment outcomes.
With extensive knowledge of the digital environment and global talent development Chris will use real-life examples, to highlight the importance of listening to the customer - in this case, the job hunter - in the market.

Internationally renowned and a leading strategic thinker in the OD and Leadership Talent Development arena, Professor Christopher Bones, currently Dean of Henley Business School has underpinned his interest in the application of bespoke online solutions, to assist with major OD and L & D initiatives, by accepting a non executive Directorship with The Working Manager Ltd.
Before taking up his post as Dean of Henley Business School, Christopher was Principal of Henley Management College from 2004-2008.
Prior to this, he was Director of Group Organisation with Cadbury Schweppes and before this he spent 12 years in various senior executive roles in Diageo PLC.
Christopher Bones was recently called upon to advise the Government, the Bank of England and both major opposition parties (now our Coalition Government) on the aftermath of the banking crisis and on the implications for takeover legislation following the acquisition of Cadbury plc by Kraft.
Soon to take on a new role, as Professor of Leadership at Manchester Business School, Christopher is no stranger to the huge OD challenges facing both national and global corporations. Massively changing conditions are leading organisations to find more efficient ways of deploying human capital strategies which directly address their business needs.
Christopher says: "With more and more organisations looking at new technology to assist with their OD and Talent Development initiatives, I am delighted to be joining the board of a UK based company which I believe has taken huge strides in the journey needed to provide solutions which sustain leaning and personal development demanded by a business need.
"I have been most impressed by TWM's ability to attract the long term interest of some very big organisations and clearly their methodology and approach is working. It is possible to provide all employees access to personal development in rapid time at low cost," he continued.
As holder of a personal chair at Henley in the practice of management Christopher will be advising the board of The Working Manager on a wide range of topics within the personal development arena as well as the company's corporate development strategy.
