The Recruiters' Unconference

Talk, don’t listen. Create, don’t consume.
Innovate, don’t imitate. It’s time to be #tru.

The #tru carnival is coming to Australia for the fourth time. Over the past few years, Australia has been at the forefront of recruitment and talent management innovation and has one of the fastest growing communities of active thought-leaders in the “people” space.

Why #tru? The #tru Unconferences are a series of moderator led, discussion-based conferences organised worldwide, where the emphasis is on conversation and free exchange of ideas and experiences. These (dis)organised events, aimed at recruiters and HR enthusiasts, are all about the latest innovations and technologies used in making HR easier.
If you’re never been to a #tru event, we recommend you read our #tru FAQ section
