Hosted by Roark and Christine De Cock, director of career solutions at Insala, the panel of experts will discuss their views on:

• Major shifts in the landscape of outplacement. Will there be further consolidation, and how does that impact outplacement professionals, their businesses and customers?
• Increasing numbers of competitive offerings to traditional one-to-one service. Is the industry impacted by game-changing technologies, services and newcomers or not?
• The impact of the global economic challenges on outplacement services. Are companies still buying? If so, what are they getting for their money?
• With the changing demographic of job seekers, how does outplacement support their specific needs?
• What role does outplacement play in the global unemployment crisis?
