Celebrating Talent Transformation Day

20th October is Talent Transformation Day. Officially recognized by the National Day Archives, this is a day to celebrate new opportunities for the talent of tomorrow and to encourage the change to make them happen.

We all know that 2020 has been a severely challenging year. But now we want to encourage our leaders, managers, coaches, consultants, and HR teams to think about how we can move forward. To start to imagine how we are going to build tomorrow’s organizations using new talent whilst also deploying existing talent into our changing workforces. Talent Transformation Day is all about encouraging change and adopting new ways of working so that we can improve tomorrow.

So here at the Talent Transformation Guild, we encourage you to think about the kind of new roles we’re going to need to fill and new tools we can use to overcome the challenges created in a world that has clearly been changed forever by Covid 19. That includes encouraging people to look at new ways of recruitment, supporting talent and building their organizations, and understanding how we can use new technologies such as AI and automation.


Some of the ways that the day is being marked include:

  • Key to the day is the launch of a new book from Eric Shepherd and Joan Phaup called Talent Transformation: Develop Today’s Team for Tomorrow’s World of Work. You can order your copy today.

  • We’ll be publishing new links to interesting articles and ideas to help people embrace the changing nature of talent. These will appear on social media throughout the day. (hashtags: #TalentDay #TalentTransformationDay).

  • The Talent Transformation Guild announcing a major virtual conference scheduled later in the year. Look out for announcements on the day to find out how you can be part of the event and to save the day!

  • Talent Transformation Day will occur every year on 20th October. This year and every year, it is all about building understanding to help leaders understand the changes and trends that are being driven by automation. It is about embracing change, not resisting it, so we can build tomorrow’s organizations.
