#truLeeds


The #tru carnival is coming to Leeds after the success of #truManchester last year. #tru provides the perfect platform for networking and sharing ideas with track leaders from around the world, right on your doorstep.

Thursday 23rd June & Friday 24th June, 9.30am - 5.00pm

Leeds Metropolitan University
Civic Quarter
Leeds
LS1 3HE

The track leaders are chosen for their expertise in the discussion topic, as well as their real life hands on experience.Their job is to facilitate conversationin the track, to listen and advise where it helps, not to present or hold the limelight.

#truDublin is the 11'th event they have have hosted in 18 months. During this time, #tru have built a global community of individuals who work or have an interest in what they call "The People Space."

The people space consists of Recruiters, (direct and agency), H.R. professionals, Branders, Digital Media Professionals, Technologists, Job Seekers, and more. #Tru is an unconference.

What is an unconference?
An unconference is a gathering of minds, experiences and opinions where the attendees (or active participants) lead the conversation. There are 4 simple rules:

1: No Presentations
2: No Powerpoint
3: No Name Badges
4: No Pitching

Apart from that, anything goes. They don’t have presentations because the best knowledge is in the room. By bringing together participants from all kinds of backgrounds with a shared interest. Job Boards, Recruiters (Corporate and Agency), Technologists, Mobile Specialists, Branding Companies and more, all with a shared interest in talent attraction from a different perspective.

No talking heads to listen to and nod or nod off.

No Powerpoint because they want the eyes to meet in the middle and everyone to have the floor. Each track, (session), has track leaders with a background in the topic, but their job is to start the conversation, be available for reference and sum things up. The stars always come from the participants. 

No name badges because they believe that if you don’t know who someone is you should introduce yourself and start talking. No need stare at their chest to work out if they are worth it.
No pitching because they don’t have exhibitions or stands. Any given always have to be creative and relevant and any product pitching gets shut down by the other participants. People will buy from you if they respect what you say, not what you pitch.

Each track lasts an hour, with 3 running an hour. You can move between tracks as you wish, it’s not considered rude and there is no need to stand on ceremony. Get what you want and move on, like an all you can eat buffet!
