Sourcing Summit 2011, here I come!
I’m excited. Then nerd in me is stirring, the geek is about to come out. Tomorrow I’m off to The Sourcing Summit (#SOSU11).
I’m a sucker for these things, I love being surrounded by great Recruiting minds, a smorgasbord to feast upon for my mind. I’m looking forward to meeting people who, until now, have only existed in the Twitterverse, Facebook or LinkedIn, people I think I know, but am yet to meet. My first ever Recruiting conference with the ATC (circa 2008 I think when Trevor Vas was nice enough to “negotiate” with my then boss to allow me to attend) changed my whole outlook on Recruiting, and thus actually changed my career, opening up a whole new world for me to explore. That was followed up with a few more recent ones, which have opened my mind, my mouth (I struggle to shut up) and introduced me to countless people, who’s brains I seem to pick constantly and inspire me daily. I can’t wait to see how this one ends up. (No pressure guys!)
Not so good will be the 6.45am flight, but it’s the price you have to pay. Plus Phil Tussing has promised me there’s coffee, hopefully I”m not too late and the other delegates haven’t finished it before my arrival, my crying wouldn’t be the best first impression to make.
I followed the Twitter #hashtag today and it seems that there were some great conversations and learning made, let me at it! Good night all, I’ll see you in the morning!
