Think of TED Talks (“ideas worth spreading”) for the field of recruiting and talent acquisition. Ideas to inspire us and make us dream of what recruiting can be. Even better if it is something someone has tried and results can be shared.
I believe talent acquisition can be so much more (than it is), and we must question what we are doing now (the status quo) and our beliefs (sacred cows) to find better ways of doing things.
My vision is a sharing of good ideas that could change how we do things currently or at least expose us to new ideas and potentially think differently. I don’t really want talks that we have heard before in conferences, but bold ideas that could be game changers.
I am in the midst of building a list of potential, local (Minnesota) speakers who are doing cutting edge things in recruiting, doing really cool things in recruiting, thought leaders in talent acquisition, or otherwise have new ideas about recruiting/talent acquisition that should be shared.
Each talk would be 10 to 20 minutes in duration. If you have something to say and want to be added to the list, please let me know and fill out the below form. You may also use the form to recommend someone (and say in the message that this is a recommendation).
I may yet get one of these events put together for this year in my area (west side of Minneapolis, MN).
