As evidenced by the extraordinary camaraderie and enthusiasm at SourceCon1, sourcing is no longer a fledgling profession. Since I first started speaking publicly about out little corner of the staffing industry I have made a point of bringing it into the light and strengthening its credibility. Though at times I may have felt alone in this quest, I knew I never was. After the first ever SourceCon I feel like there are more of us, and finally a brawny chorus is building. Having our own specialized conference may not be the last step in this process of growing up, but it is a ginormous step, and one that warms my heart and renews my fervor to continue striving to raise the bar in our profession.
Proving that we are indeed a community, check out the numerous blog posts appearing all over the web here and here. I doubt I can do a better job than what my fellow sourcing bloggers have already done, but what I can do is contribute by posting the video of the â€œPhone vs Internetâ€ panel:
Though she is quite shy about taking praise, I want to take an opportunity and once again publicly thank Leslie Oâ€™Connor for the great work she did in making SourceCon a possibility. Without her vision and touch of class, none of it would have happened. I also want to â€œsecretlyâ€ thank the other â€œmembers of the boardâ€ â€“ you know who you are!
