Networks are a lot in this world and “The network always wins”, Peter Hinssen told us 3 month ago.
Yes, we are on it to build a new trend, which will be more and more important to companies, not only in the headhunting & hr industry, it also will be relevant for all other international corporates, as Jeremiyah Owyang told us with his model of the Collaborative Economy in December 2014 in Paris at Le Web conference.
I joined Talentor in June 2014, when Michael Sarsteiner, Sabine Steiner & Daniel Marwan from ePunkt company were on it since January 2013 to restructure a network of headhunters, which was established in 2003 in Finnland.
We had in 2014 a rubbish website, which looks like a generic multi-level-marketing consulting homepage from 2004, a good start to convince new partners about our innovational approach.
If you want to build an innovative and new network in a competitive industry, you need experience, knowledge of the market, trust and an feeling for trends, but also for people.
New partners must have the same DNA, we do have in our group and this is not easy to find around the globe in a show off industry, but we are on a good way I think.
For a network it’s important, that you have a good mixture of experienced people, who are up to date with trends, but also people who are salesmen. If this all fits together like gear wheels in a watch, you will have the perfect business model.
Cultural diversity and monthly goals are also important, which has to be managed and coordinated, but this is also, what the Talentor Partners are paying for with their annual membership fee, which is just a management fee to cover all costs, but not a fee to make us millionaires.
Show-off-networks from the past (late 90ties), just have collected money from it’s members, provided a website & a logo, plus 2 annual dinner-meetings and created so a very lucrative business for the founders, but not for it's members.
We at Talentor stand for the new generation of headhunters, knowing the oldschool-business, but also startup-culture and innovation to mix it to something new, described by Peter Hinssen, Peter Thiel and Jeremiyah Owyang and many other Silicon Valley entrepreneurs.
If you join a network, just to increase your sales volume and expect leads from the headquarter, you are wrong, but if you understand your profession, headhunting is apassion for you and you are a strong BUsiness-partner searching for international exchange, innovation and partnership to serve your clients in a better way, than you might be the right person to join our network.
You must have mojo, as Austin Powers would say, and you need the same DNA than us.
Please contact me, if you want to learn more about Talentor and let’s have a Video Call and a personal discussion to find out, if we do have the same DNA to build a future network of international professionals worldwide.
