What is a Recruiting Unconference?
#tru is a series of unconferences organised worldwide, where the emphasis is on conversation, communication and the free exchange of ideas and experiences, (dis)organized by Bill Boorman, Aki Kakko and Craig Fisher.
#tru was founded in November 2009 by Bill Boorman (UK) and Geoff Webb (Canada) and have since taken place more than 100 times on 4 continents. #tru is 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.
The emphasis is on communication and the free exchange of ideas and experiences where the participants fuel the conversations. #tru have proven to be a great way to learn a lot in a very short time, but also to meet new people and network.
Who should attend?
Participants come from the people space globally, usually in the field of recruiting (both corporate and third-party recruiters), Human Resources, Talent Acquisition, Branding, Social Media, Technology Developers and Vendors.
How does it work?
The format of a #tru unconference is to run a minimum of 2-3 tracks each hour. The tracks are started by a track leader who has some experience of the discussion topic. The role of the track leader is to start the conversation and let the conversation evolve wherever it goes. Participants are actively encouraged to move between tracks according to what they need individually.
- No presentations because the best knowledge is in the room by bringing together participants from all kinds of backgrounds with a shared interest.
- No PowerPoint because we want the eyes to meet in the middle and everyone to have the floor.
- No pitching because people will buy from you if they respect what you say, not what you pitch.
- No name badges because we believe that if you don’t know who someone is you should simply introduce yourself.
- No dress code because we want you to feel comfortable and focus on the conversations.
