His approach to sourcing, landing and maximizing quality players is something our customers can all apply to the recruiting industry and we’re excited to have him.”

Details of the keynote presentations:

Thursday, May 2, 8:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. PST

  • Finnigan will kick off the Summit with his perspective on the future of recruiting. Specifically, he will explain why now, more than ever, recruiters need the power of innovation to fuel their talent strategies—and why their futures might depend on it.
  • Jobvite Vice President of Product Kevin Nanney and Chief Technology Officer Adam Hyder will share Jobvite’s product roadmap and industry outlook to address recruiters’ requirements for targeting, engaging and hiring talent in this competitive marketplace.

Friday, May 3, 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. PST

  • Moneyball’s Billy Beane will take the stage to present Moneyball: The Art of Winning An Unfair Game. Considered one of the most progressive and talented baseball executives in the game today, Beane shattered antiquated MLB beliefs that big payrolls equated wins by implementing unorthodox strategic methodology that has since opened the eyes of many top sports executives and CEOs around the country who now utilize the “Moneyball” methodology.
