Thanks to Johnny Campbell, and the team at Socialtalent, and our old friends, supporters and platinum sponsors, Sonru the #Tru carnival is heading back to Dublin. What better way to celebrate the festive season than joining your colleagues, peers and friends you haven't met yet, for a day of conversation and an evening of partying. What better City to celebrate in than Dublin. Those of you who attended #TruDublin earlier this year are sure to be back, and those who missd it, well you wouldn't want to this time.
#TruDublin 2 is a one day event, so the conversation from the whistle promises to be fast and furious. The unconference day will be followed by #truChristmas, an evening of music, dance and one or two pints of the black stuff. We promise no turkey, but there will be plenty of surprises, as well as the 2o11 #tru awards. More details to follow, but no speeches.
Disclaimer: Unlike most awards, nominations will not be dependent on PR submissions, buying a ticket or booking a table or being a member of anything. Real awards, nominated and voted for by the #tru participants.
#TruDublin2 and #truChristmas is made possible by our sponsors:
A #tru event is a pure unconference, where the emphasis is on conversation, communication and the free exchange of ideas and experiences. Participants come from the people space, usually made up of Recruiters, corporate and third-party, Human Resources, Talent Acquisition, Technology Developers and Vendors etc, anyone with an interest in people.
The format is to run a minimum of 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 one is offended and there is no need to stand on ceremony.
We have 4 simple rules:
1: No PowerPoint
2: No Presenting
3: No Name Badges (Just ask!)
4: No Pitching
Outside of that, anything goes!
Anyone attending can lead a track. There is no need for speaker applications or preparation. You have a track you want to start, let us know and we will find some space and announce it. E-mail us before the event and we will put it on the schedule. It is your unconference, and not for anyone to decide what you want to hear or talk about!
We will be announcing the track-leaders over the next few weeks, but already have contributors from around the globe. There will be strictly 80 tickets, no more, to ensure we can stick to the unconference principles.
