8th Annual TALC Holiday Dinner


The Art of Identifying, Hiring, and Topgrading Top Producing Recruiters


Presentation and Member Discussion Lead by Alan Strauss

(Managing Partner at StartFinder and Founder of TALC)



When:  Wednesday, December 7th at 6:30 pm


Where:  The Palm, Tysons Corner, VA


Why:  To provide a vendor neutral and collaborative forum for executives in the talent acquisition industry to share best practices, discuss industry challenges and to network together to build a strong community interest.


Who Should Attend:  Corporate talent acquisition vice presidents and directors


Meeting Information:  Our dinners always provide everyone with a great environment to network with peers in a more casual setting.  Our dinners are usually our most popular events of the year and they usually sell out.  Also, due to our format, we are going to limit attendance to 3 people per company.


Topic: Recruiters are the lifeline of all our businesses.  How confident are you that you have the right recruiters for your organization and that they are in the right roles?  At our dinner, we will discuss the following questions: 

  • How can you identify and hire “A” recruiters (the top 10% of producers within the marketplace)?
  • How can you better implement Topgrading strategies and better manage talent to increase your productivity across your organization?
  • What are the skills and attributes that make a top producing recruiter within our particular organizations?


Cost:  The cost for the dinner is $50 per person and it includes everything (dinner and drinks).


RSVPPlease RSVP by COB on Monday, December 5th.


Sponsor Information:  As you all know, we do not charge fees or have any other revenue sources for our organization, and as you can probably guess, dinner at The Palm is significantly more than $50 person.  Therefore, we would like to thank Appcast for sponsoring the additional cost of the event! Appcast's CEO Chris Forman will also be giving a brief presentation called The Recruitment Marketing Revolution....Will not Be Televised--how marketing techniques and technologies are quietly changing talent acquisition.
