If you and your team have cracked the code on hiring a battalion of software engineers in 30 days, if you’ve figured out how to build a diverse workforce at every level of your organization, or if you’ve developed a foolproof assessment tool for critical candidates, we’ve got the perfect stage from which to share your tale.

We’re looking for action-oriented innovators and thought leaders who are also gifted storytellers to speak at Talent Connect 2020 in Boston (October 14 to 16).The event will bring together global leaders in talent acquisition, learning and development, and HR to share best practices and build community while addressing the key challenges and trends shaping the future of work.

As a Talent Connect speaker, you’ll be elevating your community by sharing your story and all your hard-won insights with hundreds of recruiters and HR professionals from around the world. At the same time, you’ll also be burnishing your personal brand. 

So, tap into your inner Homer and tell your global peers what’s made your work positively epic.

Submit your story here.

The topics we are looking for

We’re looking for actionable ideas that touch on the entire talent lifecycle — plan, hire, develop. To get you started, here are a few of the topics this year’s attendees will want to hear about:

  • Talent acquisition leadership and strategy
  • Finding and engaging talent
  • Company culture and employer branding
  • People/talent analytics
  • Diversity, inclusion, and belonging
  • Candidate experience
  • Interviewing and assessing candidates
  • Employee experience (EX), engagement, and retention
  • Learning and development

The presentation format

Presentations can be done as talks, panels, or fireside chats with anywhere from one to four people. This year we’re also featuring speakers who will lead longer master classes — workshops that combine an interactive speaker presentation, live exercises, audience participation, and community building.

We’re looking for people with stories that focus on transformation, innovation, and results; we’re not looking for company promos. If you want to share your story (and we hope you do), submit your story now. Our submissions will stay open until May 1, 2020.

If you’d rather listen than speak, you can register for the event soon. Stay tuned for details.

Either way, as speaker or attentive listener, we hope to see you at Talent Connect 2020 — it’s going to be epic.
