DiceTru Houston (Kingwood)
Monday, October 21, 2013 from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM (CDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
An event for technical recruiters and sourcers, where the emphasis is on the conversation. #tru is the biggest series of HR and Recruiting UnConferences in the world.
Powered by Dice at Insperity in Kingwood. It's a half-day barcamp style unconference, meaning that we take the fun part of a conference (think coffee breaks) where people get to network, discuss ideas and get inspired, and take out the lengthy presentations and "Death by PowerPoint."
Topics revolve around real recruiting issues, like challenging the skills shortage, employer branding, talent acquisition, cool new tech sourcing tools, referrals etc. To give it a bit more structure, we divide the event into topics = tracks, which are moderated by designated thought leaders or pure enthusiasts. A track lasts for forty minutes, and the content is determined by the participants, who are drawn from practitioners in technical recruiting.
8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Tickets are restricted to 100

When & Where
I never wear a suit and I always wear a hat. I was the first person in the UK to register a business with @ in the name when I launched @BillBoorman in 2009. I’ve always worked in and around recruiting for the last 30 years or so. I think others would describe me as challenging the norm in most of what I do. I take a different approach to recruiting and networking. I have a great posse of connections who I can call on, and who can call on me. I used to have a real job as a Training and HR Director of a national recruitment business. I worked there for 12.5 years, before launching a traditional training business. When the recession came, I had no work and I discovered social media, the rest is history.
I’m Dad to 2 fantastic kids who inspire me in all I do. I can’t describe what I do as work, I’m having far too much fun for that. John Sumser has described me as explosive chaos, and China Gorman as the “King of Social Recruiting.” .I’m flattered.
I operate in 5 key areas:
> >Product consulting – I work with a range of companies advising on product , market and positioning including , Jobberate, Colleague RS, LabOfApps, RolePoint, Qandidate, and Apploi
> Organising and hosting #Tru (The Recruiting Unconference), events around the world. We usually host an event somewhere in the world every 2 weeks. You can find the next events on the #tru dates section of this blog.
> Content production – I produce a range of content from blog posts to white papers for technology companies. I write weekly for Qandidate. Apploi, Colleague RS, Rolepoint and Work4Labs on their blogs.
> Key-note speaking – I speak on a host of recruiting, talent, technology and HR topics at events around the world, as well as acting as emcee. I have spoken in 12 countries and 4 continents. My SHRM presentation, Global HR, has been accredited for global credits.
