What are Recruiting Leadership Labs?

Recruiting Leadership Labs are one- or two-day, hands-on workshops designed specifically for Corporate Recruiting Leaders. This is not a conference, a death-by-PowerPoint presentation by some academic guru, or some vendor-sponsored sales pitch workshop.  We offer 6 different labs, focused on strategy and engaging executivesbuilding a culture of recruiting and driving changediversity recruiting leadershipdriving recruiting performancesourcing and interview strategy, and our newest lab, leading effective QBRs (quarterly business reviews) with executives.

They are credibly led by John Vlastelica, founder of global consulting firm Recruiting Toolbox, former head of tech recruiting at Amazon and head of global recruiting at Expedia, and top-rated keynote speaker and trainer.

Am I eligible to attend?
