By Andrew R. McIlvaine
With the first-ever Talent Acquisition Technology Conference less than a month away, we're very pleased to announce a distinguished lineup of speakers for the conference's Ideas & Innovators general session. This session will feature 11 rapid-fire presentations (in the Ignite-style format) from some of the most-respected and well-known people in the talent acquisition industry. Our speakers will include blogger and consultant Laurie Ruettimann, analyst Kyle Lagunas, Brazen Technology founder and president Ryan Healy and TheMuse founder Alexandra Cavoulacos.
Each speaker will present a five-minute long talk on a "big idea" pertaining to some aspect of talent acquisition. They'll be accompanied by a deck of 20 PowerPoint slides set to advance automatically every 15 seconds during their presentation. The speakers will not have a clicker -- once their slide deck begins, it is on autopilot. Five minutes, 20 slides, 15 seconds per slide -- the result will be a fun, entertaining and thought-provoking set of presentations, all in the space of one hour. The Ideas & Innovators session will take place at the Talent Acquisition Technology Conference on Wednesday, Nov. 16, from 8:30am to 9:30am at the Hilton Austin in Texas. The full list of presenters and their topics is below.
