Event: Minnesota HR Tech And Recruiter Expo 2015


The 2015 LEHRN HR Tech Expo, one of the largest events like this in the country, is set for April 9th at the Marriott City Center in Downtown Minneapolis.

Always a good event to attend and this year it has added a new feature… a Talent Acquisition Track. Or Recruiter Track for those of us easy going types.


LEHRN has partnered with MNTRN who is sponsoring the three presentations.

"Top Five Legal Questions Arising from Social Recruiting"
Teresa Thompson, Esq. Fredrikson and Byron LLP

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a HUGE fan of Teresa. We first met years ago on a panel at the University of Minnesota. I then invited her to speak when I was running the Minnesota Recruiters group and we have partnered, collaborated and had many long conversations (usually my fault) about recruiting and legal stuff. Somewhere during that she became my attorney. Like I said… HUGE fan.

"Advanced Search Strategies: Focus on Sourcing Tools"
Laura Stoker, Exec Dir of Global Training for AIRS, an ADP Company

I have seen Laura speak a number of times at MNTRN events over the years and I always learn a few things from her.

The third session is from a guy you may have heard of… me

"Recruit like a startup"
Paul DeBettignies , Principal at Minnesota Headhunter

Most of the attendees of this event are folks who work at really large companies. I am going to show them how us startup recruiters are using job descriptions and social media, a shorter hiring schedule, working with hiring managers and CEO’s and other strategies to recruit and hire. It’s (usually) a much more aggressive approach than they are used to.

Yes we have a great recruiter track… the event itself always has a great speaker lineup and this year includes Marcus Buckingham (via Skype) and Jason Averbook.

Besides content the Tech Expo has most of the leaders in HR technology showing off their tools.
