Leading workforce expert, Right Management, has reaffirmed its support for the HR community in Asia with its sponsorship of Talent Management Asia, Asia’s leading HR strategy conference. Talent Management Asia is a two-day conference happening in Singapore, Malaysia, and Hong Kong in March 2017. The annual event is attended by chief talent officers and senior HR professionals from the biggest companies in Asia.

A recent Right Management report revealed that only 20% of managers identified as high performers successfully advance to higher levels of leadership. “It is clear that current methods of identifying and developing leaders are failing, emphasising on the gap between traditional ideas of effective leadership and what is actually required to drive and sustain business performance,” said Bridget Beattie, Right Management’s group executive vice president, Asia Pacific Middle East.

Beattie added that a systematic approach towards identifying and developing leaders is necessary for companies to build strong leadership pipelines that would help them operate more successfully in today’s uncertain and dynamic markets.

In her presentation “Why Traditional Leadership Models have Failed - Predicting, Developing and Measuring Leadership Effectiveness in the Human Age”, Beattie will share with delegates the need for a new approach to identify and develop leaders for organisations to succeed in a new and challenging environment.

Beattie is group executive vice president of the Asia Pacific Middle East region for Right Management. She is responsible for accelerating business growth and delivering talent management solutions that help employers align their workforce strategies with business goals. In addition, Beattie leads the Australia and New Zealand operations of Right Management as General Manager.

Throughout her career, Beattie has consulted with a range of private and public sector organizations which have faced significant change through mergers, acquisitions, restructuring and startups. She provides comprehensive and pragmatic advice in all aspects of organisational performance, from high level strategy to detailed implementation. Beattie is recognised for her senior-level consultation and coaching for senior executives who are experiencing leadership challenges.
