What you can expect from Recruiters Live Lounge?


[text_block style=”style_1.png” align=”left” font_size=”18″ font_font=”Droid%20Serif”]Roy Ripper here, the founder & host of Recruiters Live Lounge – the place where recruiters get to hangout together with the most successful and luminary people in our global industry.[/text_block]

[text_block style=”style_1.png” align=”left” font_size=”18″ font_font=”Droid%20Serif”]The guests at Recruiters Live Lounge share their incredible insights to help guide you on recruitment success journey, through a format of 10 questions that I ask them.

Each episode starts with a brief introduction followed by their favourite success quote and how they apply it to their everyday life.[/text_block]

[text_block style=”style_1.png” align=”left” font_size=”18″ font_font=”Droid%20Serif”]We then jump right into the journey, which at Recruiters Live Lounge will always commence in an area we can learn so much from…failure. We’ll examine the steps that led up to this situation and the actions that were taken immediately after that helped them rise above and move forward.

Now, we’ve all heard about that infamous ‘Eureka!’ moment: bells chime and light bulbs flash. Well, most people who have created their own recruitment businesses have had that moment… and we get to hear all about it.

Then, we seamlessly move into our guests’ current business. We go into detail about their day-to-day, and also touch upon their vision for the future. This will help us not only understand what it is that they do, but it will also help us understand where they feel the recruitment industry is headed.

Finally we reach ‘The Lightning Round’ which is a question segment designed to extract priceless nuggets of knowledge.

All in all, Recruiters Live Lounge is about inspiring YOU to take YOUR recruitment success next level.[/text_block]

[text_block style=”style_1.png” align=”left” font_size=”18″ font_font=”Droid%20Serif”]The Live Lounge is attracting some fantastic guests from Doug Bugie, President of Antal International Network, to Tim Watts, Chairman of Pertemps, to Ann Swain, CEO of APSCo. But it’s not all about the big names in our industry, I also speak to recruiters just starting out in their businesses, doing so incredibly well and with an inspiring journey to share. There’s no story we can’t learn something from![/text_block]

So what’s my background?


[text_block style=”style_1.png” align=”left” font_size=”18″ font_font=”Droid%20Serif”]For more than 25 years my passion has been helping recruiters take their careers and businesses to another level by inspiring personal & business growth, success and achievement. My core techniques for success as a recruiter and my strategies for creating business growth come from my own professional experience and work with some of the leading names in the industry. I began my career as a consultant specialising in selling client-paid recruitment advertising. Three years later I went on to set up a specialist executive search company with James Caan (CEO of UK private equity company Hamilton Bradshaw and ‘Dragon’ from the BBC’s popular Dragon’s Den series) working on a 100% retained basis. I then undertook a recruitment training apprenticeship with the legendary Tony Byrne and later worked alongside Ann Swain (now CEO of APSCo) at Learning Curve. I was then approached to set up the executive search division (100% retained basis) of Corporate Services Group, a £350million turnover plc. After successfully growing the business from 0 to 25 revenue producing consultants and a £2million profit within 2 years, I made the move to full time training and consultancy. I have since helped more than 47,500 recruiters from more than 35 countries transform their careers and businesses through my books, podcasts, DVDs, online training products, live events and personal coaching. I’ve been fortunate to work with some of the largest and most successful businesses in the worldwide recruitment industry, but hold a special affinity with small business owners.[/text_block]
