Getting in touch with your female side!

June 10, 2009

I’m always on the quest to find the very Best – The Leaders within a certain sector or industry.  Typically one way to locate the best are finding speakers.  Geekspeakr is currently a small growing beta website of technical woman speakers.  The goal of this website is to introduce more women to event organisers since female gender diversity can be a lot more difficult to find within a mostly male dominated industry for technical speaking conferences, workshops, organizations, etc.    You can search for technical women by topics, location, or even by spoken language.

I hope this website grows and gets more visability.   Kudos to my manager Marisela Flores for showing me this website.

Registration begins at 8:00am. The event starts at 9:00am. Presentations are finished at 1:00pm. Lunch begins at 1pm.

The presentations begin with “Spiky and Flat: Why Local Recruiting is Critical in a Flat World”. John Sumser, Founder and CEO of the Recruiting Roadshow, describes critical changes in the Labor Market that offset the trend towards a flat world. The material is a logical follow-on to last year’s Multi-generational Recruiting presentation.

A panel of Silicon Valley’s greatest Sourcers will gather to discuss their best practices and trade secrets. Featuring Dan Harris, Chris Murdock and Mark Tortorici, the panel will field detailed questions and provide useful documentation.

Nicole St Martin makes her living using Search Engine Optimization techniques to fuel Recruiting initiatives. Her talk will cover the ins and outs of SEO for Recruiters.

The final piece of the puzzle is an offering from Don Ramer, CEO of Arbita. Don’s breathtaking presentation, Recruiting as if People Mattered has been the high point of the Roadshow over the past year.

We’d love to have you join us. Register by visiting:
