“We are delighted to have such a great line-up of speakers for our third Conference” said Mike Taylor from Web Based Recruitment, organisers of the Conference.  “Social Media changes very quickly so we are fortunate to have speakers who are at the leading edge in the use of social media for their respective organisations” continued Taylor.

Social Media Success Stories

Introduced at the April 2010 Conference there will again be a session in the programme where delegates from previous Conferences will be sharing the successes they have had by implementing Social Media. “This was a very popular session at the last Conference with real-life case studies and ROI examples. It was also very pleasing to hear that a lot of their success was down to the quality of information they learnt at our Conference” said Taylor.

New For 2011 – Expo Area

Brand new for the 2011 Social Media in Recruitment Conference is an exhibition area where delegates will be able to talk to companies and see demonstrations of various social media related products and services. “We first introduced this at the recent Mobile and Video in Recruitment Conference in September 2010 and it went down well with delegates. We have therefore decided to make an Expo Area available for the Social Media in Recruitment Conference as well to help delegates see a live demonstration of a product or service in action.”
