What is the Recruiting Leadership Lab Deep Dive?
Next Session Focus: Tech Sourcing Strategies
What do Recruiting Leader Attendees Say about this Workshop?
It’s a hands-on lab for tech recruiting leaders who want to work, share and solve problems with peers, not listen to a trainer. This is about YOU working, sharing, and building in small groups.
As Founder and Managing Director of Recruiting Toolbox, he’s consulted with all kinds of companies on tech recruiting and interviewing strategy, and trained over a thousand tech recruiters, tech hiring managers, and tech interviewers, all over the world. He's been hired to work with tech recruiting teams at companies like Uber, Target.com, TripAdvisor, Yahoo!, and Groupon, in North America, Europe, and Asia.
He’s also been a top-rated speaker (rated #2 and #5 out of 100 at 2016 and 2015 LinkedIn Talent Connect, and the top rated speaker at SourceCon 2015) and a popular author on all things recruitment, including author of The Definitive Guide to Engaging Tech Talent.
In 2012, he co-founded Talent42, The National Tech Recruiting Conference, with Carmen Hudson, a passion project that has grown into one of the best conferences in the US. He leverages his network of engineering leaders and tech recruiting leaders to bring amazing speakers and learning opportunities to the US tech recruiting community.
As an experienced practitioner, he brings the confidence and humility that comes from years of real-world recruiting leadership experiences – success and missteps – to ensure that these workshops aren’t loaded with academic, “looks good on paper” strategies. Instead, we focus on real-world approaches (strategies, program, processes, tools) to solving our biggest tech recruiting challenges.
He gets tech recruiting. He loves tech recruiting.

We expect tech recruiting and tech sourcing managers from medium to large sized companies to attend. This is a new format for us (April 2017). The idea came from feedback from attendees of our Leadership Lab Core programs. Those programs have attracted recruiting leaders from all kinds of industries. Past attendees have come from startups to big companies like eBay, Amazon, Netflix, Facebook, OpenTable, Nike, Target, Nestle, Electronic Arts, Yahoo!, Microsoft, PNC Bank, KinderCare, KPMG, GoDaddy, Groupon, Visa, TripAdvisor, Square, Autodesk, Redbox, REI, and Concur.
We help tech recruiting leaders "get there, faster". This hands-on lab is all about going deep, giving you a chance to share, learn and build, and getting you feedback that'll help accelerate your path along the learning curve. You’ll learn new skills, you will gain confidence, you will grow your network with other tech recruiting leaders, and you will walk away with actionable frameworks for new strategies, processes, and programs.
Ideally, yes, but it's not required. Those labs provide fantastic foundations around strategy, business case development, driving adoption of process with hiring teams, metrics, coaching recruiters, and influencing execs. They are more like training than this more peer-to-peer-oriented lab. We've received amazing feedback from the hundreds of recruiting managers who have participated in our Core programs in the US and Europe. Check it out!
While we believe strongly that vendors and suppliers (RPO, services firms, agencies, consultants, etc.) can be critical to the success of a tech recruiting leader, this particular event is for 20 corporate tech recruiting managers/directors only. All of the content is built around an in-house, corporate recruiting leader's challenges, and all of the attendees - who want to grow their networks with corporate peers - expect the people sitting next to them to be in similar roles.
We have nothing against the vendors/suppliers/partners in our community; this just isn't the right event for them.
If you have questions about your eligibility to attend, please contact us.
If you cannot make the event, you may send another eligible person from your company (corporate recruiting manager+ level) to take your place at the same event. Just email us at least 5 days before the event, so that we can get them signed up.
Full credit card refunds are available if you cancel at least 45 days before the event. If you cancel 44-15 days before the event, you may receive a partial credit card refund (50%) or you may receive a full credit to be used against the next scheduled event. If you cancel 14-5 days before the event, Recruiting Toolbox will have already ordered your workshop materials and food, and will not have enough time to sell your seat to another person, so you will not be eligible for any credit card refund but you will receive a 50% credit to apply towards your tuition for the next event. If you cancel 4 days or less before the event, you will not be eligible for any credit card refund but you will receive a 25% credit to apply towards your tuition for the next event. Note: All credits for the next event must be used well before registration closes, as our events sell out well in advance, and if you wait to sign up for the next event, we cannot guarantee you a spot among the 20 person workshop. Therefore, to use your 25% or 50% credit, you must sign up for the next event within 30 days of your cancellation.
Sorry, we don’t. We’ve never had to discount these premium programs - we sell out, at full price, and don’t offer any kind of discounts. People tell us it’s an excellent value, so I hope you can still join us.
