2017 THEME & SESSIONS

WHAT TO EXPECT @ #SOSUEU 2017

what we are planning for #SOSUEU 2017

UNCOMPROMISING & EDGY CONTENT

Once again we will cover all aspects of sourcing in a way that #sosueu is well known for – an uncompromising dissection and analysis of all things sourcing in Europe.  #sosueu 2017 promises to be our best event yet.

SOURCING TECH EXPO

#SOSU TECH EXPO will showcase some of the most innovative companies and new technologies driving sourcing productivity across Europe. Delegates will have an opportunity to trial and play with the latest sourcing technology and tools.

#SOSUSOCIAL SOCIAL EVENTS

#SOSUEU is not all work, we want to let our hair down. This year we are looking at new ways to encourage networking and making new friends. Be ready to socialise, and get to know your peers from all over the world over a range of social events.

SOURCING HACKATHON

The popular hackathon from last year will be back, better and more fun. Teams of hackers will be formed and each team will tackle assignments of their choice.  Teams will present their hacks on day two and winners will be announced.

#SOURCING BUDDY

#SOSUEU is also about networking and making new friends. Last year we experimented with a sourcing buddy system. This year we will improve the concept and continue to advance collaboration and  the meeting of new friends.

HANDS-ON WORKSHOPS

We are contemplating conducting hands-on workshops on 10 October. This is for people who wish to immersed themselves into a particular subject over a fairly lengthy session.  Do let us know if interested.

SOURCING COMPETITION

We want to recognised the most innovative and enterprising sourcing efforts across Europe. We want to choose who is the best of the best, both individual and teams. Prizes will be given.

SOURCING LAB

Delegates will learn the latest sourcing wizardry and hacks.  There will be breakout sessions on both days dedicated to live sourcing. Delegates can bring their sourcing challenges for our speakers to tackle, in an interactive format.

3 DAYS OF SOURCING AWESOMENESS

Yes, that’s right #sosueu will be for three days. Best news is the ticket price will not change.

THEME & FOCUS OF #SOSUEU 2017

EXPLORING NEW FRONTIERS FOR TALENT SOURCING

What frontiers of sourcing remain to be explored? What does the future of talent sourcing hold? Where to from here?

At #SOSUEUROPE we will set our gaze on the whole talent sourcing ecosystem with a particular focus on the issues and challenges faced by sourcing leaders and practitioners in Europe. We will set our eyes on emerging trends and the road ahead for sourcing.  We will look at new tools and technologies, techniques and best-practices, and will decipher the ever changing behavior of talent. Delegates will develop a big-picture view of talent acquisition and the tactical nous required to be an agent of change.

Once again we will cover all aspects of sourcing in a way that #sosueu is well known for – an uncompromising dissection and analysis of all things sourcing in Europe.

#sosueurope 2017 promises to be our best yet.

Some of our focus areas this year:

FAILING & FAILURE

We now remained convinced that Success is boring and tackling failure is more constructive. This year we will up the ante on tackling sourcing failures. If you have experienced failure, you are a winner in our eyes.

SOURCING TECH & TOOLS

Like it or not advances in technology continues to be a major influencer in the lives of sourcers. This year we will set our eyes on making sense of the proliferation of technology and tools.

EXPERTISE EXCHANGE

Once again we will try and gain knowledge from other industries. We will invite speakers from other knowledge streams to share knowledge that can offer sourcers an edge.

HACKING & HACKS

#SOSUEU is not complete without a focus on hacks and hacking. We will once again assemble some of the most curious minds to . Also, the popular hackathon from last year will be back.

TALENT ‘YOU’

This year we will focus on developing brand ‘you’. The business of finding talent requires talented people, and that is where ‘you’ come in. A lot of the content will be around personal development and improving soft skills.

CASE STUDIES

Once again we will focus extensively on how sourcing is defined, performed and measured by corporations.  Delegates will learn from some of the most daring and innovative organisation on how they tackle sourcing.
