Is Lars one of the industry’s foremost thought leaders when it comes to employer branding, candidate experience, and innovative recruiting practices? Yes. But he’s also an engaging speaker, a fantastic event MC and marketer. I was lucky enough to have Lars serve as the Master of Ceremonies of our inaugural Employer Branding Summit at Glassdoor that had 100 attendees in the room but over 5,000 watching the live stream globally. He effortlessly switched between gears, from delivering a dynamic keynote presentation to engaging other speakers in Q&A following their presentations and answering questions from the audience on the fly. Always ready with thoughtful insights but witty enough to keep people laughing even 6 hours in, I can’t imagine a better MC for a recruiting or employer branding event than Lars.
“From my desk, Lars is a singular example of the way the being prepared favors the lucky. Lars is constantly on the lookout for ways to convert the resources at his disposal into something bigger and better. There is no one in the business who is as good at making a little bit go a very long way.
That’s why the brands that Lars associates himself with always benefit out of proportion to his role in the company. He’s that good.
A problem solver at heart, Lars always gets a clear picture of the question and the audience before he gets going. Once he’s in the groove, watch out. Things that didn’t look important become important. Little bits and pieces get woven into a bigger than life mosaic.
If you’re trying to get your arms around employment branding, social media are sophisticated workforce planning, Lars is the guy.”
