As we are on the eve of a new era in recruiting with the first ever conference dedicated to Sourcing and Talent Acquisition
, I wanted to say thank you to the organizers. First and foremost, thank you to Leslie O'Connor
who combined her a vision and ideas of creating just such an event. Leslie took her passion for sourcing, relied heavily on the assistance of some great friends and colleagues, and without any vendor sponsorship she has proceeded to build this event by relying solely on grass roots interest from the community. Most importantly, you should all collectively thank each other for be a huge part of making this unique and much needed idea come to reality - by voting with your feet and ensuring that over 150 people will be in Atlanta this week to learn, network and collaborate with the best and brightest Sourcing and Talent Acquisition minds in the industry.
I will also be in attendance but don't bother coming up and asking if I am SC, as you will be greeted with a shrug of the shoulders. There are many more Master Challenges and ideas that will need to be developed for SourceCon 2008, so some secrecy must remain.
I looking forward to seeing you all in Atlanta this week
