What they said...

“RecFest was an inspirational event for both myself + my team. Tons of learning, from great speakers and inspiring leaders. The biggest thing for me personally was speaking to peers who are facing similar challenges, and learning that we are not alone in the challenges we face. What separates RecFest from the rest is the unique conference-type format in an informal setting which really is conducive to networking, collaboration + social interaction. RecFest…team Wagamama will be back for sure. Keep doing what you are doing – it’s brilliant! P.S. Noasis were awesome!”

– Simon Gomez, Head of Talent Acquisition + Employer Brand @ Wagamama

What they said...

The highlight of the summer for some of the UK team was attending RecFest, and the opportunity to catch-up and network with fellow TA folks from across the UK, in a relaxed, fun atmosphere.

Being inspired by an amazing lineup of speakers is an annual opportunity not to be missed but after the last few years of covid restrictions, the experience for the team to again share, learn, interact and chat in real life with friends and peers on all things TA was an important moment.”

– Karl Teasdale (RL100 Member), Talent Acquisition Director @ Ubisoft

What they said...

“My brain just exploded with ideas, i’ve been working on events in the excel for nearly 15 years and from what you’ve shown me today I don’t think I’ll ever think about b2b events in the same way again.

– John Webster, Chief Marketing Officer @ Thomas International

What they said...

“Reflecting back on my summer, and so many post-covid get-togethers, I’d pull out #Recfest as the industry highlight of the year. Many of our UK-based team managed to attend so was obviously great to catch up with them, but was also good to see so many industry colleagues and visit so many potential suppliers.
I’d missed in-person events so much! I’ve been going to Recfest since that tiny first one 10 years ago and am a big fan. The chance to have real conversations in a relaxed atmosphere rather than “virtual coffees”, to be in a no-pressure environment so you can explore what works for you and follow up later. It’s a fantastic event and works well for TA. If you’re a TA leader and haven’t been before, check it out, you won’t regret it.

– Andrea Marston, Senior Director, Global Talent Acquisition at VMware

What they said...

“Our entire team were fortunate enough to attend Recfest 22 this year. We travelled from all over the UK and after a few years of missing out on in person events, Recfest22 was a much needed day out. To see so many smiling faces from the team during the day – whether it was the goodies they received from the various stalls, the talks who inspired them and even seeing their faces during my own speaking session was all worth it. The team found great value in learning about what other organisations were focusing on, what technology they were using to support them and what the “next best thing” in the market is going to be. Its still an ongoing source of topic in our team meetings and the team have made really valuable connections from the day.
We look forward to Recfest23. “

– Nerida Rooney, Head of Employer Brand & Strategic Resourcing @ Kier Group
