I never wear a suit and I always wear a hat. I have a simple vision to make recruitment better for everyone. I work towards this by advising talent technology companies on their product road map, with V.C.’s over investments in the sector, with hiring companies on technology and approach, and by hosting #tru events. #tru have hosted over 100 events during the last 12 months, in 65 countries and 5 continents. This has led to conversations with over 2,500 people who work in and around recruiting across the globe. This gives me a great insight in to the market, and the technology needed to support it. I’m privileged to be a judge and advocate for the UK #CandE (candidate experience awards.) which enables me to understand how the market is shifting towards giving candidates a consumer experience, and which companies are performing well. I blog regularly, and produce monthly white papers.

I’m Dad to 2 fantastic kids who inspire me in all I do. I can’t describe what I do as work, I’m having far too much fun for that. John Sumser has described me as explosive chaos, and China Gorman as the “King of Social Recruiting.” .I’m flattered.
