Since the video is in English, I’ll write this post in English as well. On the Global Recruitment Event I had the honor to talk to Kevin Wheeler for about 5 minutes on camera. The video you can watch here. He had some interesting remarks:
The more things change, the more they stay the same. It’s all about relationships, as it has always been. And we’ve never lost ‘the path’, like I said. We just take a twisty path. If you try and go in a straight line, you won’t be succesfull. We need to make mistakes to learn, but we do need to learn from those mistakes.
As an international traveller he sees differences between parts of the world. It’s in part because of demografics, since the population of Europe en the US is much older then in for example Asia.
If you want to know where we are in 5 tot 10 years, you need to go to China or India and see what they are doing. Just reading about it doesn’t cut it. The trends are clear, but we do need to look at cultural differences as well. Sharing is much more common in these countries and they do not have such a work-private seperation. So you cannot ‘translate’ what’s happening there to what’s going to happen here. But the main trends will stay the same.
