Those of you that have been hanging around here for any period of time will know that, the start of my relationship with @billboorman wasn’t the smoothest of beginnings. I wouldn’t have included him the category of one of those people who I was supposed to meet. But since that point I’ve met Bill on a couple of occasions and we get on pretty well I think. We hail from the same part of the country and can both be stubborn intransigent arseholes when we put our mind to it. And I admire that in Bill.
For those of you that don’t know, Bill is also the co-founder of the #tru events, the next of which is #truLondon which takes place over 16th, 17th and 18th of February. I’ve never been to one, but I’m told by people who know about this sort of shit, that they are good, informative and interesting events. That said, the previous ones will pale into insignificance compared to this one.
Because I’m going to be there. And what’s more…..I’m doing what I’m told is called a track. And whats more…..are you wetting yourselves with excitement yet? I’m doing it with Laurie Ruettimann.
What are we talking about? Well you’ll have to come along to find out (or read Bill’s blog where he has already spilled the beans). But lets put it this way, if you are in recruitment, we may not be on your Christmas card list post event. But lets face it, if you are in recruitment you weren’t on our Christmas card list before the event. So quid pro quo.
I’ve never been to an unConference before and I’ve never run a track. I’m told it involves me standing around talking shit and being provocative. You couldn’t find a candidate more perfectly qualified.
So if you are attending, then I look forward to seeing you there. I’ll be the one hiding in the shadows. If you’re not attending, I think there are still a very small number of tickets left. One of them has your name on it. Go on, you know you want to…..
