Lead or Be Led: The Keys to Being More Consultative and Strategic
As recruiters or HR Generalists who recruit, we have 1,000 things competing for our limited time, and can sometimes struggle to lead and be the credible expert that can take our recruiting efforts to the next level.

In this session, John Vlastelica – a former recruiting director with Amazon and Expedia, and consultant and trainer to organizations like Nike, Groupon, World Bank, Yahoo!, Edward Jones, Salesforce, T­-Mobile, Nestle, and PNC Bank – will explore HOW the most effective recruiters and recruiting leaders actually LEAD. It’s not a state of mind; it’s about DOING things differently. In this engaging, fast ­paced, irreverent session, you’ll learn 8 things that the best recruiting pros do better than the rest.
  • How to be more consultative and strategic around all things recruitment
  • How to set and manage expectations around time to hire (one of hiring managers’ biggest concern areas)
  • How to influence executives and hiring managers
  • How to accurately diagnose problems with hiring managers, and get to the root issues that prevent them from helping you hire the best talent
