i'm not usually political, religious or anything else like that. I have too many other things to be passionate about that are important. This one issue set me off though
My social feeds today have had plenty of references to the statement by Apple CEO Tim Cook that he has decided to publicly declare that he is gay. I have read the statement and I support his motives

Mobile appl? Not a great idea in my opinion. 
It's not a very trendy thing to say, but i'm not a fan of mobile apply. I think the concept of making it easier and easier for people to find and apply for any job is just crazy. Why would we want

5 ways in which talent acquisition is changing (with white paper and webinar.)
Hiring is changing to get in line with this century. It seems strange to be saying that most talent acquisition teams operate technology and methodology from the 20'th century, when we are 14 years

Should non-profits pay for LinkedIn volunteer?
I have been known from time to time to give LinkedIn a bit of a bash. I have recently described them as "the dark side" in a presentation recently, stating "There is LinkedIn, and then there is the

What would you do if you werent an agency any more?
This is not a post about the death of the agency, or the job board or anything else dying, more a look at evolution of the agency model, and what might be holding you back from trying something

#tru  events have some of the most insightful (and often irreverent) conversations of the different recruiting events I've attended. Hopefully my schedule and budget will allow for a few more of these international adventures soon.

Story
Introduction

I never wear a suit and I always wear a hat. I was the first person in the UK to register a business with @ in the name when I launched @BillBoorman in 2009.  I’ve always worked in and around recruiting for the last 30 years or so. I think others would describe me as challenging the norm in most of what I do. I take a different approach to recruiting and networking. I have a great posse of connections who I can call on, and who can call on me. I used to have a real job as a Training and HR Director of a national recruitment business. I worked there for 12.5 years, before launching a traditional training business. When the recession came, I had no work and I discovered social media, the rest is history.

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.

I operate in 5 key areas:

> Integrating social recruiting for corporate companies, usually 5000 employees +

> Organising and hosting #Tru (The Recruiting Unconference), events around the world. We usually host an event somewhere in the world every 2 weeks. You can find the next events on the #tru dates section of this blog.

> Content production – I produce a range of content from blog posts to white papers for technology companies. I write weekly for Bullhorn Reach and Work4Labs on their blogs.

> Product consulting – I work with a range of companies advising on product and recruitment applications including Evenbase , Jobberate, LabOfAppsRolePointand JobPage.

> Key-note speaking – I speak on a host of recruiting, talent, technology and HR topics at events around the world, as well as acting as emcee. I have spoken in 12 countries and 4 continents. My SHRM presentation, Global HR, has been accredited for global credits.
