Today Dale was lucky enough to be running the #HRTECHWorld Livestream. She interviewed over 20 delegates, vendors and HRTECHWorld team members. The energy of HRTECHWorld is awesome. This conference has really nailed a strong sense of community.
Some of our highlights from day 2 were:
- Most popular speakers were economist Dr Daniel Thorniley dropping hard-hitting facts on today’s job market and Euan Semple talking about blockchain.
- Most Fun Session – The Debate on #bigdata where the three speakers presented their thoughts as if they were in a courtroom – wigs and robes included. What a a fun and engaging way to present this already fascinating topic.
- Key themes: The tension between humans and robots (aka Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Big Data). All we can think is that the world is on the precipice of enormous change in tech, and HR tech is right there at the forefront.
- The area for startups, some 40 or so vendors all vying for the attention of the attendees and potential buyers, was never quiet, it seemed like there was always a good level of traffic and some were doing demos back to back for the whole 2 days. It was great to see so many vendors getting their products in front of real buyers from large corporates.
And on that note, all you vendors out there, IOHO (in our humble opinions), this event is the best out there. The quality of the delegates and conversations has been a head and shoulders above any other event we’ve been to recently. Not only was the quality of the content amazing, but the effort the various companies have put into making it interesting and diverse.
As we sign off, we want to give a massive Weirdly shoutout to the sense of belonging, inclusion, community, networking, support that we’ve felt over the last couple of days. It’s amazing; you truly feel like the team cares about building an event that caters to all parties and ensuring great outcomes for everyone, it’s not just about bums on seats for them.
And it can only get better with the new brand Unleash. We’re looking forward to continuing the journey with the team at future events.
