    "The content and guidance provided by the GBD team is perfect for any recruiting leader. Whether it’s scaling a team, navigating a changing organization or just focusing on manager growth, there’s some key takeaways for anyone. I’d especially recommend this for inexperienced managers looking to sharpen their leadership skills."
    Fritz Singer
    VP, People Aquisition
    “Don't hesitate. This is one of the best (if not THE best) career development classes specifically for building and leading Talent Acquisition teams out there. The teachers are engaging industry veterans who know how to build high performing teams. Just do it!.”
    DeeDee Breaux
    Bright Health
    Manager of Technical Recruiting
    "The longer you've been around in this industry, the harder it is to find great mentors. Every person on GBD's team has had success at the highest levels in talent acquisition. It's like getting all of the answers to the test to the hardest questions we'll all face as talent leaders in scaling companies.”
    Chris Shaw
    VP of Talent Acquisition
    “While I have led recruiting efforts in various companies I currently have the unique opportunity to do it from the ground level. This course helped me re-think and challenge some of my ideas on how to effectively do that. I am grateful for the timely information and frameworks that the workshop provided. Also, extremely grateful for the professional network it provides you with to further strategize and communicate about the challenges we face as recruiting leaders”
    Chase Johnson
    Sr. Manager, Talent Operations
    "This course allowed me to both affirm and challenge many of the approaches I bring to leading teams today. It made me think! It also provided a great opportunity to learn from others outside of my typical circle (which I will admit, is incredibly more valuable that I had initially thought). I was definitely impressed with the Growth by Design crew and look forward to future courses and connections."
    Zach Percoski
    Team Lead, Technical Recruiting
