The Sunday Post: What Is Norton Folgate? Join The Liberty #truBoston

I’m often asked “why call your blog Norton Folgate?” and “What is Norton Folgate?”.This is the answer: Why would I call my blog Norton Folgate when it has no obvious relevance to the content I post? Norton Folgate is now a short length of street that connects Shoreditch High Street and Bishopsgate in the City […]

What is #Tru?

I often get asked just what a #tru event is. Put simply, it’s a gathering of people who work in the people space. That’s recruiters, HR, technologists, branders, just about anyone. It is an open community where everyone is welcome. What it isn’t, is a conference. The pictures do the talking. This is a short […]

My TruLondon Experience – 6 weeks on Nearly 6 weeks on and I have finally had time to properly reflect on my first experience of an Unconference – and may I say I hope there are many more. Bill had kindly invited me to this years first TruLondon, unfortunately I was only able to attend […]

#TruGrad Guest Post: Ruxandra Fratescu: Why I want to be a recruiter #trulondon

#Trulondon thinking: How to break stuff – Conference edition

 There’s nothing I enjoy more than breaking the rules and breaking process moving from the established norm. At conferences and unconferences like #trulondon, I like to listen to what people are doing and saying, and thinking how we can break the process and do it differently. I arrived at the #trulondon unconference format, inspired […]

My #trulondon thinking and the #trugrad program

Wow! #trulondon is now over, at least the in person part. The last curry has been eaten, pint drunk, Meet me-me card exchanged (thanks PinstripeTalent) and conversation had.I have quite a few posts lined up on my learning points, but the one I want to start with governs graduates and graduate recruiting. Before #trulondon, I […]

#trulondon Masterclass Schedule – 16’th Feb

I have finalised the list of speakers and topics for Wednesday’s Masterclass, and it’s a fantastic mix. The masterclass is designed for those who like a bit more structure in their learning, without the constraints of the usual conference. We will be running 2 tracks of 45 minutes throughout the day. Each speaker can use […]

Talk to me not at at me #trulondon

I was involved in a bit of a twitter exchange today about presentations and Powerpoint. The reality is I just don’t like the format and I think paying big $’s to be talked at is not the best use of my time. No disrespect to the many people who put on excellent conferences that I […]

#Trulondon Featured Track Leader: Johnny Campell (@recruiterBlog)

One of the things I really like about hosting #tru events, is that every time we have an event, someone stands out as a track leader for future events. part by knowledge, personality, take on things and willingness to share their thoughts with others. Johnny is one of those people. After attending #truManachester, Johnny Campbell […]
