What is The Recruiting Unconference?

The Recruiting Unconferences or TRU Events are a series of pure unconferences organised worldwide, where the emphasis is on conversation, communication and the free exchange of ideas and experiences, (dis)organized by Bill Boorman.TRU events where founded in November 2009 and have since taken place more than 25 times on 4 continents.Recruiting Unconferences are based on the unconference or BarCamp principle, this means that everybody can be an active participant instead of listening to speakers and watching presentations all day.The emphasis is on communication and the free exchange of ideas and experiences where the participants fuel the conversations, all spiced up and (dis)organized by Bill Boorman.TRU events have proven to be a great way to learn a lot in a very short time, but also to meet new people and network.

Who should attend?

Participants come from the people space globally, usually in the field of Recruiting (both corporate and third-party recruiters), Human Resources, Talent Acquisition, Branding, Social Media, Technology Developers and others.

How does it work?

The format of a TRU Event 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.

The Rules

  1. No Presentations
  2. No PowerPoint
  3. No Pitching
  4. No Name Tags
  5. No Dress Code

No presentations because the best knowledge is in the room by bringing together participants from all kinds of backgrounds with a shared interest.
No PowerPoint because we want the eyes to meet in the middle and everyone to have the floor.
No pitching because people will buy from you if they respect what you say, not what you pitch.
No name badges because we believe that if you don’t know who someone is you should simply introduce yourself.
No dress code because we want you to feel comfortable and focus on the conversations.

This video of previous events will give you some idea of what to expect.


We will be announcing the tracks and track leaders over the coming weeks. If you want to lead a track, buy a ticket and let us know. Everyone is welcome.

Hope to see you at this unique event.
