SmashFly CEO Thom Kenney commented, “Transform is more than an event — it’s a movement. And over the last four years, it’s grown into a community of over 10,000 talent acquisition pros from around the world. We’re incredibly excited to bring people together face-to-face and deliver an agenda packed with some of the brightest people in our industry. The community asked, we listened and we’re excited to show off this year’s program and the work we do together.”

On stage at Transform 2019 will be the four-time emcee, Tim Sackett, President of HRU Technical Resources, with keynote presentations from Kenney; Leon Logothetis, a global adventurer, author and creator of Netflix series, “The Kindness Diaries;” and Erik Qualman, the best-selling author of “Socialnomics” and renowned futurist.

Session tracks intend to cover a wide range of key topics, including recruiter enablement, diversity and inclusion, data-driven talent acquisition strategy, A.I. and machine learning, candidate experience, digital transformation, recruitment marketing frameworks and more. Cornerstone OnDemand, Glassdoor and Proactive Talent will be sponsoring the event. More details and the full agenda are forthcoming.

Sackett shared, “Having supported Transform from the very beginning, it’s amazing to see how the conference evolved and with it, the recruitment marketing and talent acquisition spaces. I’m excited to be back in person and on stage and look forward to seeing what this year’s event has in store. Get psyched.”
