“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.” – Alison Hadden, Glassdoor Director of Brand Strategy
