Unlocking Talent: Talent Match Black Country Launch Event

13th of November 2014  - WV1 Restaurant, Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton


The event, which was turned around by OD&V in less than 8 weeks, aimed to generate business interest to aid future increase in Black Country opportunities for Talent Match young people in an innovative and memorable manner. Proceedings started at 8:15am with an official welcome from Prof Ian Oakes, Talent Match Steering Group Chair. The host for the morning, ITV Central main presenter, Sameena Ali-Khan, professionally managed the 3 live voting sessions and a live interview which involved four beneficiaries and Talent Match hub representatives. Questions were taken from the floor prior to the premier show of specially commissioned marketing videos. The 130 attendees were then invited to network around the exhibition stands over breakfast. Live graphic recording was an additional innovative element that contributed to the overall resounding success of the event with the ‘Big Picture’ becoming a focal point during the networking time.
