I need to decompress a bit but there are a few things I need to get out of my brain so I can make room for thinking about what comes next.
What happened today with the Minneapolis Recruiting Unconference and Recruiting Roadshow was awesome in every sense of the word and to borrow an often used phrase, we may have just caught lightning in a bottle.
John Sumser, thank you for coming to Minneapolis. Your idea was the fuel for the event and for what happens next. We are indebted to you. I look forward to our growing friendship.
Don Ramer, I met a new friend and ally in you and I look forward to working with you in the future. You were with us from the get go and I will take you up on your offer to partner on future events. Please thank your team for me.
Nicole St. Martin, my wingman, tech, and email partner. There is no way this would have happened without you.
Steven Rothberg, Josh, Toby Dayton, Derrick Moe, Andy Keith, and Doug Berg, thank you for sharing your knowledge with the group today. The only negative feedback we have had is you did not have enough time and more Q&A was needed. What a great problem to have. Next time, and there will be many next times, we will do more by doing less and give you proper time to present.
The response we had today from attendees, email and phone message received since has been very humbling for me. Much too much credit is coming my way.
Yeah, I had an idea but it is John’s roadshow, support from Arbita and HotGigs, the volunteer presenters, and most importantly our HR, recruiter, sourcer colleagues that attended that made this event what it was.
