Do you have to have had previous experience of speaking at similar events?
No, in fact we love to hear from recruiters who have not spoken at events before. We will provide as much support as you need to ensure your talk is a success.
What type of background do speakers need to have?
We look to hear from experienced recruiters, from organisations hiring less than 1,000 staff per annum. We like the focus of these events to be hearing from your peers rather from suppliers to the industry. However, we are always open to a strong relevant talk from the right supplier.
What if I want to be involved but am not able to present a talk?
With every event we have opportunities for experienced recruiters to get involved in panel discussions. These require less preparation than a full on talk. You just turn up ready to answer questions and share insights.
Where do you events take place?
At the moment (2022), we are remote but we plan to launch our first f2f sub1000 conference in 2023.
What type of topics are you interested in speakers for?
Each sub1000 event has its own theme(s). We try to keep these themes broad to allow a good range of talks. Our next event in Nov 2022 has the themes of “inclusive recruiting” and “attracting talent”. We are keen to hear from recruiters who have been actively implementing any changes/projects to help their organisations recruit more inclusively or improve attraction.
Can I present with a colleague?
Yes, we have had some speakers invite up to 4 other members of their team to be involved in their talk.
How long is a speaking slot?
Each slot is 50 mins. For a panel discussion this would be a 5 min intro and 45 mins of questions/discussion. For a talk, we would typically see our speakers present for 20-30 mins and then engage in a Q&A.
What type and how many people attend sub1000?
Our audience is primarily, UK based in-house recruiters and HR professionals from sub1000 organisations. Although, we don’t exclude anyone from attending. Past sub1000 events have seen 500+ registrations with each talk gathering between 50-100 attendees. Recordings of all the talks are shared after the event with each registrant and also made available on our website.
