Interseller's Kristina Finseth on Infiltrating Recruitment With Sales Tactics
Usually on The Talent Intelligence Podcast, we keep it pretty loose, chatting about culture, attitude, methods, and how to hire.
But when Kristina Finseth said she’d be a guest, we knew that wouldn’t work. Kristina’s an absolute fountain of knowledge on the subject of outreach in recruitment, and if we’d started chatting, we’d never have stopped.
So in this episode, we got Kristina to talk through her top outreach tips. Listen as she discusses:
👀 infiltrating recruitment with sales tactics
🤝 how to engage candidates,
🌍 where to find them,
📹 and she dissects and rewrites a whole email.
Mindtickle's Anthony Parker: "If I'm the best at anything my abilities as a leader and a coach are flawed"
Should leaders be the best performers in their team? Not if you ask Anthony Parker, General Manager EMEA at Mindtickle. According to him, if he's better than his team, it diminishes his abilities as both a leader and a coach.
In episode 9 of The Talent Intelligence Podcast, Anthony sits down with our Head of Sales Anthony Parker to discuss:
Growing and scaling
The difference between working at large orgs and start-ups
Proving yourself in leadership
And much more...

Ida Matthiesen of HBK on The Importance of Open Communication in Building a Strong, Diverse Talent Network
In episode 5 of The Talent Intelligence Podcast, we sit down with Ida Matthieson, Talent Acquisition Lead at HBK.
Ida has had an interesting first year in her HBK career, joining the business just as the pandemic hit and quickly moving up the ranks while never meeting most of her co-workers (sound familiar anyone?)
While she’s been working on a holistic approach to HBK’s talent strategy, Ida has also brought her passion for DE&I to the fore, an interesting challenge in the male dominated industry they operate in. Ida has been an instrumental part of a team that has pushed for diversity not only internally but from the business’s suppliers and partners.
In this episode we discuss the impact of the pandemic on remote teams, how a fast-moving market has made talent departments more agile, what the future of diversity looks like, and much more.
And if that doesn’t peak your interest, tune in to hear about Ida’s mad dash from London to Denmark, leaving all of her belongings behind in the process - she’s not a fugitive, we swear.
