Hiring in the US
Join our round-table discussion on Hiring in the US to explore:
How to find and attract the right people, expectations around employee agreements, business norms and cultural differences, challenges with assessing skills on a cross-cultural basis and hiring horror stories you can avoid.
The panel will be moderated by Daniel Glazer who leads the US Expansion practise at Silicon Valley-headquartered law firm Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, Notion's US law firm strategic partner. Dan splits his time between NYC and London, with a particular focus on assisting technology-driven UK companies with US expansion, fundraising and strategic partnership transactions.
