The Rare Find

Speaker(s): George Anders

Recorded on 2 November 2011 in Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House.

How do we recognise greatness? The world-wide hunt for talent has never been more ambitious, more systematic -- and more frustrating. It's time to redefine how we think about talent, and to come to terms with three major blind spots in the ways that most organisations hunt for superstars. Better approaches are within reach, as shown by the successful, maverick methods of the world's best talent spotters.

This event marks the publication of George Anders new book The Rare Find: Spotting Exceptional Talent Before Everyone Else.

George Anders is a founding member of Bloomberg View's board of editors, writing about technology, innovation and economics. He spent two decades as a top feature writer for The Wall Street Journal, where he was part of a team that won a Pulitzer Prize for national reporting. He is the author of three previous books, including a New York Times bestseller. He lives in northern California.
