We’re Ready for Our Talent Innovation Summit!

The photo above says it all. The countdown is over, and we’re stoked for Day 1 of our Talent Innovation Summit!

Throughout the last few weeks, we’ve previewed much of what’s in store over the next two days. We geeked out when Hot Topic gave us a peek at how they apply machine learning to recruiting, threw down the gauntlet when Lou Adler said he could find any top-tier passive candidate, went behind the scenes of GoDaddy’s diversity transformation story, and much more. Along the way, we hope you decided to either join us at the Summit or register for our free live stream. But even if you haven’t yet, you can still tune in here

Thankfully, we know we’re not the only excited ones. Over the last couple weeks, our speakers have taken to social media to share how they’ve been preparing for this day. So before the action commences in a few hours, we wanted to look back at how they’ve been gearing up:

For starters, Johnny Sanchez and the Hot Topic team have clearly been jamming to the tunes of #talentinnovation. So yes Johnny, we’re holding you all to a dance party:

Shopify’s Anna Lambert has been having just as much fun as Ace Ventura (and his three friends in the background) had in this moment:

Alison Mann brought When Harry Met Sally back into our lives, and we cancelled all our plans so we could have a movie night instead:

We’ve loved seeing all these tweets from our speakers – it’s hard to believe we finally get to hear from them. Don’t forget that you can too, as long as you tune in to our free live stream. Hope you’ll join us!
