The Talent Transformation Guild provides useful information to help people understand themselves, others, and the future of work. As part of this activity, we interview leaders, practitioners, experts, solution providers, researchers, and authors, as guests, to create webcasts that explain critical aspects of the new world of work. As an invited guest, you will, of course, have a good understanding of the underlying issues. If you are an organizational leader or practitioner, our members would like to understand what you have found works, what doesn't, and explain your current challenges. If, alternatively, you are a published author/consultant, we will be interested to hear about your research, new ideas, and explanations.

We respectfully request that you socialize the webcasts on your networks, which will hopefully include LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter.


Typically, the webcast will be structured as follows:

  • Eric Shepherd, Talent Transformation's Executive Director, will host the webcast, provide introductions, and ask questions

  • The host(s) and guest(s) will be "on-screen" for the complete webcast

  • Introductions, presentations, and the conversation will be 30 - 45 minutes

  • Please allocate an hour for the call as we will:

    • Confirm that everyone is comfortable

    • Check audio/video at the beginning

    • Confirm "what happens now" at the end   

  • The webcast will be recorded and made available as a video from the Guild’s website


We may translate these Terms into other languages for your convenience. Nevertheless, the English version governs your relationship with TT, and any inconsistencies among the different versions will be resolved in favor of the English version available here.


Our goal is to provide an enjoyable and valuable experience for you as well as our listeners. It is not our intention to try and ‘trip up’ or pressure anyone. We believe that it’s going to “take a village”. We know that our community understands different pieces of the puzzle and by sharing we can learn and make the right decisions more often than the wrong ones. We are keen to encourage panelists to share their experiences and knowledge as they wish.

The following information is for your guidance:

  • In advance of the webcast, we will agree the brief and discuss and agree the subjects and questions to focus on.

  • The Talent Transformation webcasts cover a wide array of topics, including:

    • Emotional intelligence, psychological safety and employee engagement

    • New and evolving business models and value propositions 

    • Technology trends, automation, augmentation, and robotics

    • Managing change and data driven decision making

    • Learning and development and the new skills and competencies required 

    • Any specific category within the Talent Transformation Pyramid (link)

  • We will use Zoom to record the audio and video. If you are unfamiliar with Zoom please refer to the Zoom user guide here and the video tutorials here.

  • You will need effective broadband for the recording.

  • During the webcast we request that you have your head and shoulders in the video frame and looking directly into the camera. 

  • As our guest, you will be provided an opportunity to present information and answer questions from the host(s) or other panelists (if we have multiple panelists).

  • Any presentation materials should be provided to us before the webcast for us to understand the content and be qualified to ask questions.

  • The webcast will be free-flowing and other questions will be asked as they arise.

  • You should allow at least an hour for the recording of the webcast. 

  • The Talent Transformation Guild retains final editorial control over the content of the webcast. 

We are excited that you are considering being a guest and we look forward to working with you on this important work.
