What does 2020 hold for sourcing practitioners? Will it be the year sourcers and sourcing finally achieves its potential? In this fascinating keynote Karen will argue why Sourcers should feel empowered, valued and are deserving of a seat on the table. For good reasons – the war for talent and advances in technology has created a perfect storm where the importance of sourcing has increased and the skills of sourcers are highly valued. Karen will look at the past and decipher what sourcers need to do to be taken seriously. This session is a clarion call for the sourcing community to stand up and reach for the stars.
There are about 5 million Facebook users in Israel which is significantly more than 1.4 million LinkedIn users. So there is no doubt that Facebook should be a no-brainer for talent sourcing. A problem appeared some months ago when Facebook disabled the “Graph Search” feature which is why a number of popular tools such as the Facebook plugin intel-sw.com, SearchIsBack.com or Stalkface.com have stopped working. This has a huge impact on how we can now filter relevant candidates on the social network. In this webinar José will demonstrate the use of techniques that will help you to get the maximum available amount of relevant profiles on Facebook.
The latest clever ways to find talent from one of the best tool tinkerers in the business.

This session will increase your understanding the fundamentals of the internet and databases, and how to get the best out of them from a sourcing perspective.
Are we missing the human touch in sourcing? Tech driven automation, tools, endless KPIs and a focus on numbers is driving the human out of sourcing. Sourcing is morphing into a numbers game. How can we reconnect with what is essentially the reason why sourcing exists in the first place – our humaneness. This session will explore how we can embrace our humanity in all its foibles and triumphs, and become better humans and ultimately better sourcers.
Finding people is becoming easier, convincing them to act or pay attention is challenging, which is why seduction matters. Learn how you can bring the art and science of seduction to sourcing. Effective persuasion is the next big challenge for sourcers.
The sourcing profession and the recruitment industry are based on asking the right questions in order to achieve the most targeted results.
Based on case studies from Fortune500 companies, this interactive session will include questions from interviews for roles with remuneration greater than one million US dollars.
What are the million-dollar questions, when to ask them and who could answer them? Which questions do you ask in order to assess the strategic mind, the ability to execute and the management skills of an individual you are considering for an opportunity? How can you tell if a candidate is a good fit for your company’s DNA?
In this session we will discuss questioning techniques, tools and methodologies relevant for everyone in the sourcing community in order to improve both the engagement with prospects and candidates, and the consulting services to clients and managers.
You must be mad if you’re not using MAD!
MAD refers to Marketing, Advertising & Digital tactics that you can apply to your sourcing pipelines. Did you ever think about how you can connect with people who previously interacted with you or your website? What about the potential candidates that looked on your career site but didn’t apply?
Learn how to strategically position your job ads in front of these audiences as they browse (Google OR Facebook OR Linkedin) thus helping you increase your employer brand awareness and remind your potential candidates to apply to your positions.

As professional HR people we’re pretty good at our jobs. We’re on the forefront of sourcing, have great ideas on bringing new candidates and are basically magicians. The problem is that in many organizations, our partners, the managers, aren’t on the same page, and don’t really “get” what we’re doing. However, sourcers can’t work alone, and we’re all painfully aware of the very important role managers play within the sourcing and recruitment process.
I will take you with me in a search and show you some methodologies and tools, which you can implement yourself the next day.
Recruitment and sourcing does not always go according to plan. Sometimes business and life itself hands you lemons, it’s the job of the sourcer to turn them into lemonade. This session is a practical case study of one of the most innovative companies in Israel – Lemonade and how they transform difficult sourcing projects into sweet success.
‘The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago; the next best time is now’ so goes the Chinese proverb. A modern sourcing infrastructure cannot be built overnight. This session will look at how to pre-plan, invest and build a sourcing capability that will deliver results in due course.

This session is for power users and those who want to stay ahead of the pack.
How many qualified candidates you have per position? When do you stop your sourcing, after 20 or 40? Each position takes us, in average, over a month ( and sometimes much longer… ) to recruit. Sourcing is a major part of it. Reducing the time to hire is of the outmost high importance. If we can find a way to reduce the sourcing time, we will reduce the total recruiting time drastically. If we will constantly analyze the existing data, we can create the right formula for the blended sourcing to yield the best results.
Sourcing for a single open position is hard, sourcing for multiple roles is a lot harder. Sourcing for volume roles consistently is very hard. This session looks at how you can effectively run volume and mass sourcing projects consistently. This is a sourcing project at its most sophisticated. It’s knowing how to identify what works and scaling it, year in and year out. This session will highlight the challenges, failures and success of embarking on mass recruitment.
Have you been curious about web scraping? It’s easier than you think – there’s a learning curve but no need to be too technical. Scraping is both fun and a productivity booster. We’ll run through the use and comparison of Email Extractors, Web robots, Outwit Hub and Docs, Phantombuster, Data Miner, browserless scrapers and a few more.
Diversity sourcing is in everyone’s lip. But is this just another buzzword and feel-good corporate malarkey? This session will break myths and highlight the follies of what amounts to diversity sourcing today. It calls bullshit on what’s wrong and offers a new way forward.
Most companies have a treasure trove of data in-house which can further be enriched by using data from the open web. This session will demonstrate how organisation can greatly improve the value of their candidate database by harnessing open information available on the web.
Will robots replace humans? How will AI and smart machines help or hinder us? This session will explore advances in technology and how they will affect our way of life, work styles and workplaces. This session is a cautionary that ultimately it’s human intelligence that matters, and smart players can harness technology to their advantage. Machines are smart, humans can be smarter.

She will decipher past successes and failures and will attempt to chart how the future will look.
