Our Services

Executive Recruitment Support (Director level and above): Our expertise is in finding and engaging with candidates that are highly skilled in their craft, complement your culture, and are motivated by your Employer Value Proposition (EVP).

About the Blog & Comics

In the Talent industry, there is an abundance of misconceptions, traditions, and absurdities that are rarely challenged and improved.

The blog and comics highlight the perils of deferring to conventional wisdom. If Chris’s content resonates with you and your organization, it’s time to revisit your talent management strategy.

About the Whiteboards

A whiteboard is a blank canvas to brainstorm, design, challenge, and collaborate. While the comics highlight a problem, the whiteboard is the first step in ideating a better product or solution. 

Whether it’s a physical or digital whiteboard, the intent is the same – to share and iterate on ideas. The name Whiteboard Talent underscores our belief that the talent industry is ready for disruption. Grab a smelly marker and contact us!
