New industry relationship

Talent Drive secured new clients and quadrupled their team through podcasting

Talent Drive approached Podcast Labs to create a show that would establish them as a thought-leader in the procurement space. By consistently releasing over 60 episodes discussing on-trend, topical debates with established brands, Talent Drive built relationships with their key target audience, resulting in new clients and roles.

This resulted in the show securing sponsorship from 4 major procurement brands, and launching a new series of “Talent Talks” live events in Central London. The host, Martin Smith is now featured on other podcasts discussing the industry, and is building his team of recruiters due to the influx of new roles.
