The conference is called 'Measuring and Communicating the Value of Talent Management to achieve Board Buy-In and Integrate it into the Business Strategy' and is being held at The Selfridge in London. It will be chaired by Stephen Battalia, Group HR Director of Nestle UK & Ireland.

As The Economist has reported there is a 'war' for talent, and 'businesses are increasingly aware that they must step up their talent management activities or lose out'. It says that 80% of top executives believe that attracting and retaining the best people will be the primary force influencing business strategy by 2010.
