London, United Kingdom
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.
