UK Sourcers News – 10th September 2012

UK Sourcers News

Last week we held our first event. I’d like to thank everyone that came along – the attendees were the event. I really enjoyed seeing people sharing their challenges and chatting about what they’re doing in the world of sourcing. It was also great to learn a few new things! I had been a little nervous about the “no agenda” format, but everyone seemed happy to get going and dive in. Extra big thanks to Ken and Florence at Mind Candy for providing such an inspiring setting and for keeping hunger at bay with plenty of pizza!

Thanks to Chris at Plugin Recruiter for writing such a nice review of the event too.

Ideally I would like to make the events a regular thing – and not always in London. So if your company would like to host one, then just let me know. When I get the next event off the ground, It’ll be announced in our LinkedIn group first.
