Our guest speaker, Sheila Musgrove started TAG Recruitment in 2005 with an IKEA desk, bargain website, and a computer monitor as big as a fish tank. TAG has grown into a thriving multi-million- dollar organization with a strong reputation for finding stellar talent—all from an uber funky office, with a disco ball and a gong.
Her mantra is "some is good, more is better”, which applies to running, the amount of jewelry worn, heel height and laughter. She loves all things that sparkle and thinks she’s a lot taller than she is! Yes, she runs quite easily in heels and recently completed her second half marathon (in runners) with more races to come.
Sheila has received numerous awards including the 2017 Alberta Venture ranking of Alberta’s fastest growing companies – TAG has appeared 6 times on the list. Profit and Chatelaine rank Canada’s Top 100 Women Entrepreneurs – she’s appeared on the list 4 times. Sheila was recognized by Red Deer College as their 2015 Distinguished Alumnus of the Year. She has been nominated as a 2019 “Woman of Inspiration” by the Canadian Business Chicks.
Her first book, “Hired! How to Get The Zippy Gig. Insider Secrets from A Top Recruiter.” hit the Amazon Best-Seller lists in both Canada & USA within the first 24 hours of being released. Three years later, “Hired!” is still ranked in the top 20 resume books in Canada!
Her second book, “Unexpected Mentors. Weird & Creative Ideas To Boost Your Career.”, was published in April.
