I know I have been out of pocket for few weeks but I have been busy. Have a new superstar recruiter, leading the charge for the American Heart Association’s HeartWalk for our Dallas branches, putting together a project plan for our ATS implementation, and getting totally psyched for the 2nd Annual Talent Net Live mini-Conference (#TNL)!
What is TNL? TNL was started by the ever so popular @fishdogs (Craig Fisher) a couple of years back so that great minds like you could get together via Twitter to talk about hot recruiting topics, best practices and whatever we felt like tweeting about at the time. The monthly #twitter event is held the last Wednesday of every month from 8 to 10 PM CST. If you haven’t attended, you will be impressed and very tired when you are done. It moves at light speed and your head is spinning by 9.00 at the vast amounts of info being shared. Just go to #tnl and follow away.
Last year, Craig Fisher, Dorothy Beach and #DFWTRN put on one awesome conference with speakers from around the Dallas – Fort Worth area and one from London, England (@billboorman) who was phenomenal about where the economy and recruiting industry was headed. The purpose of this mini-conference was to have people in DFW and cities in Texas attend a local conference for next to nothing dollars especially in the down economy. We had close to 200 attendees at Frito Lay’s HQ and it was well received.
Well this year has its’ share of great return speakers including Michael Long (@theredrecruiter), Chris Hoyt(@therecruiterguy), and Jenny DeVaughn (@jennydevaughn) just to name a few. Here is the list of speakers: http://is.gd/e38kU
The Date is Friday, August 27th from 8 AM to 5 PM with a Tweet-Up to follow. This is a great way to learn from some of the top names in the industry and many you would recognize if you are on Twitter. We are back at Frito Lay in Plano, TX so what are you waiting for? I’ll be there!
There are 36 spots left for $50 and another 50 tickets for $75 after August 21st.
Thanks again to Craig Fisher, Marianthe Verver and Jim Schnyder at Frito Lay for planning the event and I look forward to seeing you there!
