Bestselling Author and CEO of Influence & Co. to Headline RecruitCon 2018

BLR® is pleased to announce that RecruitCon 2018, the premier recruiting event of next year, will be headlined by none other than John Hall, CEO of Influence & Co. and bestselling author of Top of Mind.

http://live.blr.com/event/recruitcon/?code=EDDA&utm_source=BLR&utm_medium=referralForbes and Inc. writer Hall will be delivering the keynote: If They Don’t Trust You, They Won’t Give You the Time of Day: Steps to Unleash Your Influence and Engage Those Who Matter to You on May 10, 2018, in Nashville, Tennessee. As the title suggests, Hall will discuss how to engage an audience by building trust with them. In a world where every company competes for the best talent, the ability to build trust with potential applicants has never been more important.

RecruitCon 2018 will also feature other great speakers, like Matt Buckland, VP of Customer Advocacy at Workable, and Elena Valentine, CEO of Skill Scout. Buckland was a longtime customer of Workable who decided to get involved with the company. He will be leading the general session Tech Talk: Case Study on How to Master Machines for Next-Level Recruiting.

Valentine began as a lifeguard and now does everything from community organization to visual storytelling. Valentine will be heading the intensive workshop How to Effectively Use Photos and Videos to Create Visual Job Postings with the ‘Wow Factor’ to Attract Talent.

BLR began the annual RecruitCon event to help answer one simple question: Does your recruiting program have what it takes to beat out the competition for top talent? Every company knows the stakes: Get quality people in the door if you want to grow. Join us in Nashville on May 10th and 11th and find out what’s holding you back with great sessions like The Rise of Remote—How to Attract, Retain, Engage, and Manage the Distributed Teleworkforce and Social Media and Mobile Recruiting: New Trends Every Employer Should Be Leveraging.
