About #truLondon

#Tru (The Recruiting Unconference), is a unique event that comes to London twice a year. Since launching in November 2010, #trulondon has established a reputation for being the place to come and talk about what is coming next in recruiting and sourcing, and the latest innovations in recruiting and social technology. The last event in October 2012 attracted contributors from 14 countries and 3 continents. As always, there are plenty of surprises and new tracks planned for 2013.

#truLondon7 is the 45'th event in the series, and is the flagship event of what is now a global series spanning 20 countries and 4 continents. Everything from direct sourcing case studies,social agencies, technology developments, culture and employment branding, managing the recruitment function, blogging, the social channels and much more will be covered in the tracks, where you set the content, outcomes and agenda.

What is an Unconference?

An unconference is a gathering of minds, experiences and opinions where the attendees (or active participants) lead the conversation. There are 4 simple rules:

1: No Presentations

2: No PowerPoint

3: No Name Badges

4: No Pitching

Apart from that, anything goes. We don’t have presentations because the best knowledge is in the room. By bringing together participants from all kinds of backgrounds with a shared interest. Job Boards, Recruiters (Corporate and Agency), Technologists, Mobile Specialists, Branding Companies and more, all with a shared interest in talent attraction from a different perspective. No talking heads to listen to and nod or nod off.

No PowerPoint because we want the eyes to meet in the middle and everyone to have the floor. Each track, (session), has track leaders with a background in the topic, but their job is to start the conversation, be available for reference and sum things up. The stars always come from the participants. (We select track-leaders from participants at previous events.)

No name badges because we believe that if you don’t know who someone is you should introduce yourself and start talking. No need stare at their chest to work out if they are worth it.

No pitching because we don’t have exhibitions or stands. Any give aways have to be creative and relevant and any product pitching gets shut down by the other participants. People will buy from you if they respect what you say, not what you pitch.

Each track lasts an hour, with 2 or 3 tracks running at the same time. You can move between tracks as you wish, it’s not considered rude and there is no need to stand on ceremony. Get what you want and move on.

The tracks

The full track schedule will be announced closer to the event . After the success of the Sourcing Lab and Live Hangout at November's event we will be running some new labs in March. The labs consist of a series of tracks on a single topic, with track leaders with proven experience in the area. The six labs for March are:

The Sourcing Lab - Tips and techniques to source and approach the hardest to find talent.

Direct Sourcing Lab - Case studies from corporate recruiters with an in-house perspective.

The Mobile Lab - How mobile is changing recruiting, with a mix of the technology questions, and how mobile impacts on people, from job seekers to recruiters.

Innovation Lab - Twelve examples from start ups and new technology in the recruiting sector, and an innovation competition.

The Social Agency Lab  - Concentrating on the needs of recruitment companies and consultants. Less theory, more of what is actually happening.

Candidate Experience Lab - A deep dive in to the world of applying for a job and getting employed, with best practice from around the world.

The first twenty tickets are priced at £100, then its £150.00. You wouldn't want to miss out!
