Track – Graduates: The Opinionated Generation or Generation Me?
As a qualified Occupational Psychologist, David has extensive experience in managing commercial service / software teams with substantial revenue targets, direct advisory and human resources / organization development consulting in over 30 countries. With specialities including people assessment and development systems and internet based psychometric assessment tools, David knows a lot about people and how they think and is therefore perfectly informed to question the self-serving motives of today’s self-obsessed generation. Are our graduates really all me, me, me or are they just braver than other generations in demanding the resources they need in order to succeed? Along with Marina Morrissey of Sigmar (who has more graduate experience than you can shake a stick at), David will discuss both sides of the coin at this year’s #truDublin unconference on May 27th.

Track – “I didn’t sign up for this shit” : How Disillusionment Starts at the Interview
The job titles “Managing Director of Fortify Services” and “Outplacement & Career Management specialist” are bandied about when it comes to Rowan Manahan, but you can call him “The Career Guy”.

With over 15 years experience in career planning and training with executives at all levels, Rowan has gained some of the best industry insights around into the world of recruiting. He’s also a damn good presenter and self confessed presentation skills demon! Combine this experience and these skills and what have you got? A fantastically well-researched argument as to why all recruiters are lying and why this results in disillusioned, disengaged and resentful employees at the year’s #truDublin Recruitment Unconference on May 27th.

Track – Are Recruitment Agencies Anti-Social?
Lisa was worked in the recruitment, training and technology sector for almost 20 years now and in that time has built up a rather strong professional reputation with the busiest hiring companies in the UK. In her day-to-day role, Lisa advises her clients on the most effective use of the web, technology and social media to improve how they recruit, their business processes and their bottom line. Her extensive skills and experience in this area means Lisa really has the authority to ask the question; Are Recruitment Agencies Anti-Social? In an industry driven by people surely it is possible for recruitment agencies to leverage the power of social media in the same way direct hiring agencies can? This is exactly the question Lisa will be posing when she joins us at this year’s #truDublin unconference event on May 27th.
