Global Talent Conference 2014: The Aftermath

Thank you to all of those participants who took the time to answer our 2014 Global Talent Survey. As you can imagine, this feedback is extremely valuable to us when it comes to evaluation and future planning for next year. In this blog we would like to share with you some of the data results and details.

The response rate of the survey was a little lower than expected (only 42%) but it still provided us with good feedback and some ideas to enhance the Conference next year.

Internationally Trained Professionals (ITPs) participants, 71.9% who responded indicated that they were Very Satisfied regarding their Overall Satisfaction for the Conference with 0.0% marked under the category of Disappointed.

Of the employers who responded, 55.6% stated that they were Very Satisfied regarding their Overall Satisfaction rating of the Conference with 5.6% indicating they were Disappointed.

What ITPs said: “Thanks for this wonderful opportunity”.“Just to say thank you to you all for arranged such a good and positive attitude conference”. Their suggestions for next year: “The conference was very good and I am sure you will make it very interesting by inviting more employers from each sector……. more one to one interaction with employers……focus more on interaction and networking”. What employers said: “Great job! Congratulations to the organizers of this event. It’s always a pleasure to attend”.“This is a great chance to learn and exchange knowledge. The learning opportunity goes both ways. In addition, it is very valuable to find qualified people who can contribute to the Alberta economy and growth”. And suggestions for next year: “Need to have more opportunity to connect with more people…. more time to attend the marketplace”.The Organizing Committee would like to thank all of you for your active participation in the Global Talent Conference this past February and once again, taking the time filling out the survey!

We will review in detail all of our survey results and suggestions and incorporate them all in our planning design for the next conference in 2015.

Thank you,
