A Couple Dozen Speakers for SocialHRCamp Toronto 2017

A Couple Dozen Speakers for SocialHRCamp Toronto 2017

We are almost there. 120+ members of the Toronto HR/Recruitment Community will be coming together at Lighthouse Labs in the evening of November 21st for SocialHRCamp Toronto 2017. We’re introducing a new concept for SocialHRCamp — short 3-minute pecha kucha-style presentations from Founders and Leaders of Canadian HR/Recruitment tech start-ups. Technology adoption within the HR Community is still a struggle, and it’s largely due to the inability of the community…

Next Stop… Camp #18 in Toronto

Next Stop… Camp #18 in Toronto

Our journey since the early days way way way back in May 2012 has been an interesting one. We’ve ventured into some interesting North American cities like Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Omaha, Boston, and Chicago. We’re looking to continue growing our footprint within Canada, and this expansion has been 100% organic. It’s been a lot of fun meeting and working with several HR and Recruitment communities to…

T-2 Sleeps to SocialHRCamp Alberta 2017

The Canadian expansion for SocialHRCamp has finally started, and what better place than to go to the “City of Champions” (yes it’s been awhile since the Oilers last won the Stanley Cup but we think it could happen again in the very near future) where Camp Founder, Jeff Waldman, career started. SocialHRCamp Alberta 2017 will be taking place on September 28th at the Epcor Tower and will feature a phenomenal…

T-2 Sleeps to SocialHRCamp Los Angeles 2017

It’s been a long road to get to this point but we’re ecstatic to be rolling into Southern California for our first SocialHRCamp in Los Angeles on Thursday, May 11th. It will also be our first evening event so it’ll be interesting to see how things go. Whatever the case we’re not averse to trying things out and giving things a go. The primary reason for our decision to do…

Introducing the Sponsors for SocialHRCamp Vancouver 2016

We’re getting closer and closer to our 15th SocialHRCamp in the city where it all began, “Silicon Valley North”. Version 1 of the agenda was published last week (check it out here) and our speakers are locked down (will be introducing them next week). This post is about introducing the small but mighty group of first-time sponsors. We tend to use “first time” a lot, which we like by the…

FINALLY… Version 1 Agenda for SocialHRCamp Vancouver 2016 is Live!

We know we know… it took some time to get version 1 of the agenda published for SocialHRCamp Vancouver 2016 (click on the “Agenda” button). For those of you who know how we curate the agenda, it’s a work of art to say the least. We ask all attendees a set of short questions during the registration process for a specific reason. No it’s not to bombard and spam them all…

We’re getting close to our 2nd SocialHRCamp in Omaha, Nebraska. If it’s going to be anything like last year it’s going to be a great day of learning, networking and socializing. The speakers, sponsors, food, drink and everything else in between are locked and loaded and ready to go. There are some seats still available so please be sure to snap them up asap if you still haven’t registered. It…

Aaaaannnd We Are Back… SocialHRCamp Toronto in May 2016

It has been awhile since our last SocialHRCamp, which was on June 18, 2015 in Chicago. Not much has really changed since then from a social media and technology adoption perspective within the HR industry. Well, that’s not really true because adoption continues its upward trend, the HR technology continues to grow and we have seen a slight shift in core focus within HR. If you’re wondering what this shift…

Hail to the Blackhawks… and SocialHRCamp Chicago

Hail to the Blackhawks… and SocialHRCamp Chicago

Somehow the Chicago Blackhawks managed to win game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals against the Tampa Bay Lightning, and then schedule their parade on the day of SocialHRCamp Chicago. It was June 18th and we could see a section of the parade from where we were at TechNexus. How could anyone forget us all gathering around the windows overlooking the parade down the street to catch a glimpse of…

And just like that, as fast as a blink of an eye the 10th SocialHRCamp in the city where it all started, happened. It was an extraordinary experience for several reasons – the venue at Hootsuite‘s HQ1. Hands down it was the best venue SocialHRCamp has taken place in. Not only the physical space but the Hootsuite employees that volunteered to help make it a raving success. The speakers were awesome,…
