I first wrote about The Recruiting Unconference
last autumn before TruLondon's inaugural run at the Barclays Tower in Canary Warf, London. This first event was hugely fun, informative and filled with opportunities.
Bill Boorman (aka @BillBoorman) brings TruLondon
back for its second outing on 17th/18th/19th February, this time at Twitter Job Search HQ in Soho.
: Myself and four Sourcing Super-Stars are putting on a training day prior to the unconference. TruSource takes place on 17th February, I believe there might still be a couple of spots left if you would like to attend. So register
During the unconference all the attendees are speakers and there are absolutely no powerpoint slideshows (those are the only rules of unconferencing). There will be 'tracks' with some acknowledged experts taking part in the discussions, but myself and the other track leaders will be hoping to learn just as much over the two day unconference as the rest of the participants.
Once again I will be leading tracks on Sourcing over the two day unconference in conjunction with fellow sourcers Jim Stroud
(from Atlanta in the USA) and Geoff Webb
(from Toronto in Canada).
- The aim is for Day 1 to be all about the technology. So, what do you want to learn about technology for recruitment? What are your thoughts on likely innovations? What is needed to drive the industry forward? Come along with your questions and your answers. There will be a white paper produced on future technology from our findings.
In the evening, when we are all in need of letting our hair down, there will be a curry tweetup
- This should be a much fluffier day, all about the people, the talent and the recruitment process. I am particularly looking forward to discussing online behaviour and how how we can best engage talent communities.
There is still time to register
for the event, but be quick as it is almost completely sold out.
Follow the build up and the action on Twitter using the hashtag #trulondon.
The TruEvents go global in 2010 with more than 10 events
