We are just back from the Kennedy Recruiting conference in Orlando. This event ranks right up there as one of the best we have attended this year. It was an excellent forum for us to share knowledge with and get to know a wide range of HR and Search professionals. The content and conference program were great, the Kennedy staff was very helpful and professional, and the search professionals in attendance were consistently coming by our exhibit to meet us and learn more about SGA.
A highlight for us was co-presenting at the special Sourcing Summit portion of the conference yesterday with Internet "search guru" Shally Steckerl, on "Getting the Results You Need Out of Your Research & Recruiting Process". It was a standing-room-only talk packed with attendees. We got to know Shally when we co-presented a Webinar with us and did some training with the SGA Research team this past July, and it went so well we really welcomed the opportunity to work together again. Shally interviewed Sheila prior to their presentation together regarding "what’s important for recruiting professionals in 2008". You can see the video interview with Sheila on Shally’s blog.
