The Secret to Standing Out

Brenda Helps, an executive recruiter for Hutchinson Consulting and a longtime HR guru, has been helping candidates find their ideal roles for most of her career. In her interactive session, The Secret to Standing Out, will share how to create a compelling executive resume and provide tips for standing out from the rest. She will also reveal how to ace an executive interview and negotiate the best package. The session will include a Q&A at the end, and Helps will be available throughout the day during the event showcases where attendees can connect in person, ask for advice, and even bring their resumes to add to the Hutchinson database to be alerted about future opportunities that might be a fit.

Prior to joining Hutchinson, she spent more than 30 years in senior human resources positions for some of the hospitality industry’s most prestigious and well-recognized companies, including Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, Miraval Arizona, and a division of Sodexho. She served as national training director for Fairmont Hotels and most recently as vice president of talent acquisition for Aimbridge, the world’s largest third-party manager of hotels and resorts. While there, she designed and implemented strategies to attract top-tier executives and leadership talent for branded, boutique, and independent properties. Her deep connections to the hotel, spa, and restaurant industries and strong understanding of business operations, combined with her HR and search experience, provides the unique skill set required for delivering the best and most suitable talent in the hospitality and wellness industries.
