It’s official: TruDublin will kick off again on May 16-17

TruDublin May 16 and 17 Sycamore Club Dublin

I am delighted to announce the third TruDublin Unconference will take place on Wednesday and Thursday May 16th and 17th, in the Sycamore Club Temple Bar in Dublin, for two days of all things recruiting and technology.

Early Bird Tickets for TruDublin at just €99 each until May 5th (normal price €199) from Eventbrite, Click here to book.

If you don’t know by now, a TRU unconference is a a unique event where the emphasis is on conversation, communication and the free exchange of ideas and experiences. Participants come from the people space, usually made up of Recruiters (corporate and agency), Human Resources, Talent Acquisition, Technology Developers and Vendors and more.

The format 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. No one is offended and there is no need to stand on ceremony.

We have 4 simple rules:

1: No PowerPoint (or KeyNote, or Prezi…)

2: No Presenting

3: No Name Badges (Just ask!)

4: No Pitching

Outside of that, anything goes!
