Join Us for #truBatonRouge

truUNCONFERENCE300x300We’re holding an event in Baton Rouge on January 29th and I hope you’ll join us as we explore topics related to talent, recruiting, HR, culture and technology. This free event, planned by the community for the benefit of the community, is for YOU! Join us if you’re interested in meeting and connecting in order to share, learn, build relationships, and have conversations.

#truBatonRouge is an unconference and there will be no speakers, no presentations, no pitches, no name tags and no podiums. We won’t be there to collect HRCI recertification credits (because there will be none) and we won’t sit quietly in orderly rows dutifully taking notes.

Rather we’ll have track leaders who will start a conversation around a topic in order to drive an interactive and engaged conversation. While track leaders will have the ability to decide exactly what they want to talk about, we’ll focus on topics like sourcing strategies, hiring the right talent, building your recruiting capabilities, organizational culture, social recruiting and all manner of talent/people strategies. Whether you’re looking to apply some new techniques or share what you’ve done or are doing (big or small companies!) you’ll find the conversations happening at #truBatonRouge. Scheduled tracks include:

  • The Internet IS your Friend: Tips from a Corporate Recruiter
  • Your Company Culture is Crap …. and You Know It
  • Fear and Loathing in Succession Planning
  • The Problem with ‘The Job Interview’
  • Are YOU the only one who cares about your Performance Management Strategy?
  • and.. a (mini) Hackathon – “Innovation in HR”

Each track leader (and you can be one! let me know if you’re interested!) leads a ‘track’ on their chosen topic and anyone can contribute, offer an opinion, tell a story or, if they wish – change the entire conversation all together. Track leaders moderate, facilitate and keep the conversation going – oftentimes by challenging the others with questions and ideas.

There have been 175 #tru events around the world since Bill Boorman founded #tru in 2010 and this is the second event to be held in Louisiana (we held #truNOLA in 2012). In the spirit of #trumunity this is a FREE event – planned for and available to ALL in the BR community!

We’ll be holding the event at Success Labs and I hope you’ll make plans to join us.

Contact me if you’re interested in leading a track – and register soon as we have a limited number of tickets available.

Note: #truDublin, organized by Ivan Stojanovic (@IrishRecruiter) and being held at the Guinness Storehouse, is happening on the same day as #truBatonRouge. We’ll be doing something fun with our friends in Ireland during #tru!
