Day 1  – November 2, 2022

Bring your successes and challenges to share with and learn from others in the recruitment industry. This half-day workshop is reserved for TA leaders and their teams to interact with peers and participate in moderated discussions focused on what is working and isn’t in recruitment today. The session will be held in the afternoon at Celanese (walkable distance to the Westin).

Ending the day on a fun note, unwind, mix, and mingle at a cocktail hour held after the workshop back at the Westin before heading out for your dinner plans.


Day 2  – November 3, 2022

Kicking off the main conference event at the Westin in the morning is an inspirational keynote from Leslie Maxie — a 1988 US Olympian and an international speaker whose motto is, “Excellence is not an accident.” Leslie’s keynote presentation will inspire attendees with the message that no matter what happens in the world, bold resilience is the key to purposeful excellence in the world of work, recruiting, hiring, and retention.

The rest of the day will include informative sessions from practitioners and solution providers focused on improving recruiting, hiring, and the candidate experience. Speakers and panelists will include industry influencers and past CandE-winning companies like Southwest, Celanese, AT&T, and others. We’ll have more speaker announcements soon!

Start the evening celebration with a special attendee cocktail reception followed by the CandE Awards dinner honoring the winners of the 2022 CandE Awards program (to be announced early September 2022). The reception and dinner is a perfect time to meet up and socialize with peers, meet new friends and celebrate elevating and promoting a quality candidate experience!

Talent Board President Kevin Grossman and TalentNet Founder Craig Fisher will be the 2022 CandE Awards + TalentNet Live Conference emcees.
