Global Talent Sourcing Transformation, Strategy and Innovation Leader

Shally Steckerl

Speaker+ Spotlight.

Rebel, pioneer, innovator, thought provoker, founder, husband, and father.

By day I’m officially Global Head of Talent Sourcing and People Analytics at an 11 year old $2 Billion tech unicorn. What that really means is I have the honor and pleasure to serve as chief talent sourcing advisor and recruitment transformation leader for a group of very talented, passionate and dedicated people on a mission to disrupt how consumers shop online.

In and out of work I’m quirky, introverted, creative, generous, humorous and loyal. Some call me a Subject Matter Expert, others see me as a Mad Scientist, Educator, or Advisor. Just don’t call me a “guru” because I have more questions than answers. My drive to serve compels me to be a coach and guide, or even a mentor, certainly not a sage.

You’ll find my name on hundreds of “top influencer” lists but don’t be fooled, I’m just a geek with a passion for solving puzzles and a facility for seeing patterns others missed.

The Talent Hunter

Vanessa Raath

Speaker+ Spotlight.

I have over 15 years’ experience in the Recruitment Industry and I have specialised in the Tech space for most of this time. Before starting my career in Recruitment, I taught unruly children in London; operated a ski chairlift in the USA and taught people to Scuba Dive in SE Asia.

I launched my own Sourcing Business in 2019 and it was the best decision for me to become a Solopreneur. I have never been as challenged, yet at the same time, as fulfilled as I am now. I am passionate about raising the standard of Sourcing in Africa so that we can get up to speed with our global competitors.

I also love presenting about talent attraction, career branding and sharing my knowledge, and experience, with others. I am often asked to deliver Keynote Presentations at international conferences like SourceCon, Sourcing Summit, Talent42, Talentnet, to name a few.

When I am not in work mode, you will probably find me having a lekker (vegetarian) braai with family & friends, preferably in the Bush or at the Beach 🙂

You are most welcome to connect with me on Twitter & Instagram too – @Van_Raath
