The Recruitment Unconference


Why attend #TruZurich?

Read below why  Track Leaders from previous events recommend Recruiting Unconferences:

TRU Unconferences are the best and fastest way to learn from international recruiting experts. Highly recommended!

Jacco Valkenburg, Recruitment Architect & Social Media Recruitment Consultant (NL)
(Jacco will also be a Track Leader at #TruGeneva)

A tremendous benefit of the participant driven unconference is that no matter where in the world we come from we have similar issues and goals. Though our challenges are similar it’s the diversity of thought and perspective, and the open discussion of creative approaches that brings the real value.I’ve lead tracks at a few TruEvents and have been so impressed at how recruiting professionals from different parts of the globe are so willing to share their successes, their failures, and their learnings with the one goal of improving the profession.

Arie Ball, VP Talent Acquisition at Sodexo (USA), and she loves the Red Sox!

As a fellow UnConference Disorganizer I highly recommend you check out #TruGeneva for an opportunity to network and learn from some of the brightest minds in our industry.Not only will you be given the opportunity to meet and chat with these folks one on one, you will also make relationships that will span the globe and your lifetime.Not many other kinds of events can say that, you should sign up today.

Geoff Webb, CEO at Radical Events and co-founder of the #Tru Events

Bill Boorman has managed to create a great event up in such a short space of time. Lots of learning, lots of predictions, lots of fun.’

Lucian Tarnowski, Founder & CEO at (UK), and he has a profile on CrunchBase.

I was involved in the initial growth of the #TruEvents movement, the brainchild of @BillBoorman.It is truly a unique experience – some have called it break out sessions on steroids! Others have suggested it is ‘organized chaos’. For me, it is a unique way to engage with people from all walks of life with amazing experience and viewpoints in a truly ‘caring and sharing’ environment.Etienne is a perfect example of how #TruEvents work – attending as a delegate to learn more about how job search might work and now as an organizer himself.I heartily recommend attendance (and participation) at #TruGeneva. It will open your eyes to the Art of the Possible.

Alan Whitford, Founder of Abtech Partnership and (UK)

I was a Sourcing track leader at the second and the third #TruLondon. It was a pleasure to interact with the curious, open-minded audience. Of all the recruiting gatherings I have attended, #Tru meetings had the most interesting crowds and the most informative sessions.#Tru encourages fresh, unconventional approaches to all things recruiting and the spirit of friendship and sharing. I especially enjoyed discussing international, local and global flavors of recruiting and sourcing.Kudos to Bill Boorman for creating the #Tru unconferences.

Irina Shamaeva, Partner and Chief Sourcer at Brain Gain Recruiting (US)

It was invigorating to be a part of the Tru experience. It was exciting to be with talented recruiting professionals exploring the real issues and opportunities of our work. This isn’t your typical conference or meeting, it’s much, much better.

Jason Lauritsen, Human Resources & Leadership Consultant (US)

Tru is unique in that people of all levels of experience are able to learn, question and share knowledge.Truevents help germinate seeds of ideas and ways of working that shape our industry for the better.

Martin Lee, Head of Business Development (UK)

Surrender to the magic that flows in the semi-organized chaos #TRU-style; it brings together some of the brightest and most eager minds from Recruitment and HR of Europe.

Patrick Boonstra, Online Marketeer Employer Branding & Recruitment (NL)

I couldn’t recommend #Tru events more highly: for the fantastic people they attract, for the amazing breadth of content they cover, and for the stimulating and rewarding unconference format.There really is no better way to get the latest on how to enhance your recruiting efforts with social media.
