truDublin Schedule of Tracks just announced!

#truDublin 2013With just over a week to go, we’re thrilled to announce the (near) final track listing for this year’s truDublin. We’ve packed 22 tracks into this one day event and have trimmed it down to 45 minutes per track to keep everyone on their toes! Alongside old favorites like Culture, Employee Referrals and the Candidate Experience, we’re mixing it up this year with two case studies (Country Branding & Workforce Engagement), no less than 2 sessions on the Science of Recruitment Marketing (LinkedIn & TMP Worldwide), 2 Graduate tracks, a lesson in Google Marketing, 2 debates on how recruiters are losing their sales mojo and even a genuine former Irish rock star leading one of our most hotly anticipated tracks! Thanks to our fantastic sponsors, Social Talent (that’s us!), Sigmar Recruitment, The National College of Ireland, Monster, Bullhorn, Kelly OCG and StackOverflow, we’re providing attendees a with breakfast, lunch and drinks afterwards, all for only ‚¬49 per ticket.  Of course, we couldn’t do any of it without our amazing track leaders to whom we are enormously grateful! Check out the line-up below!

If you haven’t got your tickets yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? You can get them here.

Don’t forget, the unconference is structured with concurrent tracks started by our track leaders, and the conversation will continue with you and your fellow peers sharing best practice and debate.

What is The Recruiting Unconference?

The Recruiting Unconferences or TRU Events are a series of pure unconferences organised worldwide, where the emphasis is on conversation, communication and the free exchange of ideas and experiences, (dis)organised by Bill Boorman. Recruiting Unconferences are based on the unconference or BarCamp principle, this means that everybody can be an active participant instead of listening to speakers and watching presentations all day. TRU events have proven to be a great way to learn a lot in a very short time, but also to meet new people and network.

With kind thanks to our TruDublin Sponsors:
