About the Author

Kate O'Loughlin is an executive coach and HR consultant, specialising in Talent Management. Kate is passionate about helping people get the most out of organisations and what leaders need to do to make that happen. She has worked with a wide variety of people from chief executives to graduates, in organisations large, small and medium sized, both international and local.


This is a great book. It has challenged my thinking and provoked me to think differently about talent management. I've taken away things that I can implement straight away whilst also giving me plenty of food for thought for longer-term improvements. -- Dan Hardaker, Head of HR, Heineken UK
Kate is a true expert in her field, she's passionate, engaging and a joy to work with. -- Jennifer Heyes, Head of Talent and Development, Vodafone UK
Clear, concise, easy to read and comprehensive coverage of the subject. This book offers a nice balance of knowledge of the subject, review of the literature and research which is particularly helpful for someone working broadly in this space. It constantly challenges the validity of talent programmes and processes. A very useful and insightful book. -- Adrienne Gault, Head of People, Transformation and Organisational Change, Food Standards Agency
There are quite a few books covering talent management, but this is the first that I've found easy and interesting to read from cover to cover. It's low on jargon (and where it is introduced it is always explained) and it's very practical and no-nonsense in its approach. Peppered with real examples it is inspiring... no more time to write this review I need to start making some changes! -- Ted Smith, Director of People & Places, Wellcome Trust
