Awards for supporters of talent: four role models for the region honored
The “TalentAward Ruhr” is being awarded in the ThyssenKrupp Quarter for the first time on December 2, 2013. It will honor personalities who have committed themselves to a special degree to supporting talent in the Ruhr region that cannot be found in classic education biographies. With the prize TalentMetropole Ruhr is emphasizing the great significance of supporting different new talent in the region in particular. At the same time the Initiative would like to point out the great talent potential in the Ruhr region that has to be enhanced. “We want to honor those people who strive to educate and develop young talent every day. They know the resistance from everyday practice and are thus best suited to be role models for others,” says Jan-Peter Nissen, Chief Executive Officer of Initiativkreis Ruhr, explaining the special philosophy of the TalentAward Ruhr.
Prominent supporters from business, politics and society
The main speakers of the evening are Garrelt Duin, Minister of Economics of the State of North Rhine Westphalia and Dr. Heinrich Hiesinger, Chairman of the Executive Board of ThyssenKrupp AG. Other speakers will be Bärbel Bergerhoff-Wodopia, member of the Board of Executives of the RAG Foundation, Michael Schmidt, Chairman of BP Europa SE, Erich Staake, Chief Executive Officer of Duisburger Hafen AG, and Thomas Wessel, Chief Human Resources Officer of Evonik Industries AG.
Conference TalentPerspektive Ruhr on December 3, 2013 from 10am
TalentMetropole Ruhr looking for new perspectives
Are Duisburg-Marxloh, Dortmund‘s Nordstadt and Gelsenkirchen-Ückendorf problem districts or much more reservoirs of talent in which abilities are lying fallow just waiting to be supported? How can corporate human resources departments develop their expertise in staff selection so that they also discover talent that cannot be recognized as such at first glance? These are just two issues on the agenda of the conference TalentPerspektive in the ThyssenKrupp Quartier in Essen on December 3, 2013. Over 30 round table meetings and workshops will primarily deal with the key question of how we can better use the region’s talent reserves.
