What is LEAP TA: Searchlight?
An invite-only industry-specific expert network created to share strategic ideas and unite non-traditional thinkers year-round, creating a time-saving channel for overcoming shared industry challenges and helping each member get the talent they need.
“I feel like I’m well networked and I get value out of the informal groups I’m already part of but these are unprecedented times and many of us have to have multiple scalable strategic approaches! This network of global TA leaders can provide potential additional insights that may lead to “aha!” moments that
can immediately translate into value, these meetings can help us discover what we’re not yet doing or a better approach. That to me is time well spent!”
Everette Brown, Head of Global Talent Acquisition & Strategy, PTC Therapeutics
What It Does
Membership allows you to identify the ideas, vendors, resources and people who can help you transform TA effectiveness, delivering actionable ‘aha!’ moments that can immediately translate into value.
It encourages you to develop a trusted network of thought partners you can engage with during structured conversations as well as in- between meetings for more immediate new ideas and inspiration.
And as the network develops, this provides you with global perspectives, personal, and also professional development over time to ensure that it’s an investment in you as much as your business.

How It Works
Virtual meetings take place every 2 months for 60 mins each and founder partners influence what gets discussed
Members are given the subject of each meeting in advance and asked to do 20 mins prep to allow them to get most value
The bulk of meeting time is spent in breakout groups containing like-sized companies for maximum relevance
Members ask questions of each other ahead of meetings as a way of gaining further value from participation in the network
After each meeting, key takeaways are shared with participants within 24 hours to ensure immediate actionable value from each meeting
The network will increase in size each year to ensure it remains varied and to increase the ongoing value of remaining plugged in
