Welcoming the announcement, Robert Mac Giolla Phádraig, Sigmar CCO and founder of Talent Summit (pictured above with last year;s keynote Monica Lewinsky) commented: “We are delighted to announce Sir Bob Geldof as our keynote speaker for Talent Summit 2020. Widely recognised as one of the leading global humanitarians of our time, Bob has always looked to promote sustainability and wellbeing of those less fortunate through his activism.

 

“In an era of digitisation, shifting demographics and corporate citizenship, aligning what truly matters to people in their working world and the world at large matters more than ever before. Sustaining the impact of people and their wellbeing in the workplace and our impact on the world requires a resurgence of humanity in all we do. We look forward to hearing insights from Bob’s activism and humanitarianism to gain a deeper understanding of how we can lead with more compassion and empathy. Now, more than ever before, it is crucial for talent leaders to gather to debate and share strategies for how we can adapt, transform and lead as global/corporate humanitarians with more compassion, kindness and empathy. We are the first generation of talent leaders to experience this rate of change and the last to affect that change for the better.”
