Notify Me When Registration Is Open
for Recruiting Leadership Lab 50 in Seattle

John Vlastelica and the team at Recruiting Toolbox are bringing a Director/VP level TA leadership event to Seattle on September 19-20th.  Participation is limited to 50 talent acquisition directors/VPs from medium to large sized companies.  We expect this intimate event to sell out quickly, so if you want to be notified when applications to register open up, please complete the form and we’ll notify you via email.


This is an invite-only TA leadership event.  It’s not a conference, and not a workshop.  It’s also not a pure networking event.  And there are no sponsor booths.  This is a hands-on, strategic 1.5 day event for senior TA leaders.  It’ll combine some fire-starter panels and talks with small group work sprints, so you’ll build out strategies and processes and new models to take back to work.

We’ve been delivering Recruiting Leadership Lab workshops to corporate TA teams (Nike, Salesforce, Adobe, Bloomberg, Disney, Canva, Slack, Liberty Mutual, LinkedIn) and individual TA managers for over 10 years.  Companies like Amazon, Microsoft, Pinterest, Facebook, Target, Starbucks, EA Games, and Northrop Grumman have been sending their TA managers/directors to be developed for years now.  We’re now offering a value-dense experience for leaders of TA managers (Director/VP level only).  It’s called RLL50 because it builds on the experiential learning format of our regular TA manager labs, but is limited to 50 senior leaders.

Yes, our founder created Talent42 (sold to Sourcecon in 2018) and as president of a non-profit put on highly rated conferences for 10 years.  Our public Recruiting Leadership Lab workshops have received ridiculously positive feedback from the 20+ cohorts that have participated across the US and Europe over the past 12 years.

John Vlastelica – who’s been hired to train VPs, Directors, and Managers in recruiting for over 10 years, and served as the head of TA for a Fortune 500 firm himself – is personally building out the agenda and MCing the event.  He knows heads of TA and directors in TA are crazy busy, and won’t put something together that sucks.  It’ll be fun, intense, actionable, and strategic.  And participants will have to apply and qualify to attend.  John’s team will be working at the event to help keep it engaging and valuable, and his team is made up of former TA Directors at companies like Marriott, KPMG, Yahoo!, and Oakley.
John is a 3-time #1 rated speaker at LinkedIn Talent Connect and a former #1 rated speaker at Unleash, events aimed at senior talent leaders

That’s to be determined.

Amazing.  Maybe.  September can be really nice – still like summer.  And because we’re doing this Thurs/Friday, you can extend your trip to enjoy the water, mountains, and food for the whole weekend if you choose to extend your stay.

Maybe.  But if we do, we won’t have any booths or sales people selling.  We might need some underwriting assistance to fund this event and keep registration fees reasonable, as we’re hosting it in a world class conference center on Seattle’s waterfront (the World Trade Center).
