Our founder, Jemma Gajic, is on a mission!
Having serviced the Consulting Industry for two decades, Jemma has made a name for herself as a huge advocate of DEIB (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging), it’s a core part of every Elysian recruitment process.
In doing so she has built strong relationships with many of the key companies and key women in the sector and that network inspired her to start building a community of like-minded individuals. All you have got to bring is a willingness to participate and a desire to grow – either yourself, your business or your network.
Jemma started with a core group of ladies who would share ideas, experiences and opportunities via quarterly meetings at the fabulous AllBright Club in Mayfair. The word quickly spread and within in a year the group was over 80 people strong. We attract some of the best-known industry names to present to us in a relaxed and positive environment that encourages openness and makes for hugely engaging events.
‘Talent & Diversity’ – led by Jemma we discussed how to grow your consulting business within the Great Resignation considering COVID, hybrid/homeworking and the different drivers in the candidate market.
‘Making the Jump’ – discussing those jumps that take us out of our comfort zones as we move towards our goals. Industry luminaries, Nik Govier (Blurred), David M. Brear (11:FS) and Anita Kimber (EY) gave inspiring background stories of their own journeys to the top.
‘Spotlight on Consulting Apprentices’ – with help from two of our awesome clients – NCR and EY we gave young people the stage. We discussed ‘hot’ topics such as the future of the workplace and reaching, attaining & retaining future top talent.
Our Community continues to grow and flourish and we have exciting plans to develop it further. We would invite anyone interested in becoming part of our mission to click below to email Jemma.
