Doug Bugie, president Antal International executive recruitment, announced as special guest speaker at the “Icons Of Growth” in London

We are delighted to announce that Doug Bugie will be a special guest speaker at the “Icons of Growth In Global Recruitment” event hosted by The Elite Recruitment Network and Jonathan Wright, to also featuring the celebrated recruitment entrepreneur and Dragon's Den star, James Caan as well as the female executive of the year, Rosaleen Blair.


Mr. Bugie will be the only speaker representing franchising in recruitment. Doug is a currently President of Antal International Network (the franchise division of the Antal Intl Group Of Companies founded and chaired by Tony Goodwin).

Antal International Network is the executive recruitment franchise headquartered in London with 120 offices in 30 countries, soon to open 8 more including Panama and Greece.

Doug was also CEO of Norman Broadbent, first executive search firm in Europe and co-founder of Humana International with James Caan which was sold to a publically traded Fortune 500, cdi corp. Humana was the international franchisor of the year in the UK in 2000.

Doug has over 30 years sold, built and led over 800 franchised recruitment businesses in more than 40 countries.

Icon host Jonathan Wright says: "I met Doug in 1993 when I was starting my time as James Caan's CEO at the Alexander Mann Group. James had recently invested alongside Doug to build an international recruitment business - Humana International. I did a good deal of coaching and training work for Doug, helping to develop the skills of business leaders around the globe.

"What I witnessed was a total commitment to replicating a proven formula in every international operation that he opened. Naturally this had to be sympathetic to local culture but Doug’s ability to drive consistent results through proven embedded methodology was incredible. So successful, in fact, that the business was acquired by one of the world's largest recruitment businesses, CDI Corporation."

This workshop will explore and dissect the style and approach of 5 industry leaders:

  • James Caan (Founder of Alexander Mann, has built and sold hundreds of millions of pounds in value in recruitment businesses, investor on BBC’s Dragons’ Den)
  • Doug Bugie (President of Antal International Network, 130 offices in 30 countries)
  • Rosaleen Blair (Veuve Clicquot’s Business Woman of the Year in 2007, her business filled over 100k jobs in 70 countries last year, founder of Alexander Mann Solutions - Britain’s first specialist Recruitment Process Outsourcing business)
  • Rod Flavell (Founder of FDM Group, ‘Best CEO in the IT industry’ in the 2015 European CEO Awards
  • Peter Searle (CEO of Adecco UK & Ireland, Adecco is one of the top 3 recruitment businesses in the world)
