How to Work With HR Tech Influencers Part 2

How to Work With HR Tech Influencers Part 2 Featuring Sarah Brennan and William Tincup  (Encore Podcast)

“One of the things that you can do and I think is highly underutilized is that you can’t be at every show. There are Bloggers, writers, practitioners, influencers, that are at a lot of these shows. And it’s not unusual to reach out to some of these people that are at them. A lot of the shows publish their blogs squad or whatever that is for the particular show ahead of time, to reach out and say hey you know we know you’re going to be there we’ll cover your flight down or you know the equivalent amount of money or hotel room — whatever that is if you’d be willing to write a wrap-up post. What did you learn? Tell us about the event that we could share out. Maybe send a few tweets out, or have your team retweet the content that’s going on at some of these shows using the hashtag. So that hashtag and your brand are still affiliated even if you’re not there. You go to a show like SHRM you would never see every single vendor in that expo hall. Even at some of the larger tech conferences, you don’t have time to see every single vendor. And so as people are looking through those feeds, they don’t even know you’re not there. Because you’re still sharing and you’re participating in a conversation. You don’t have to ignore it just because you’re not there.” Sarah Brennan Read more

Have you ever been in a situation where you say to yourself, “wow, why didn’t I think of that?” I have. Many times.

I’ll give you two examples: About 10 years ago Chris Russell called me and with a great idea called JobsinPods, “the only podcast where real employers talk about their jobs and how to get them.” Several years ago I bought JobsinPods from Chris, a serial entrepreneur with a new idea every day. Currently, the ‘Mad Scientist of Online Recruiting’ is Managing Director of RecTech Media, and a Recruitment Marketing and Employer Branding Consultant. Read more

David Rose Making Money and Having Fun Through Angel Investing

“Any company designed for success in the twentieth century is doomed to failure in the twenty-first.” (Encore Podcast)

David S. Rose

Did you know that every year in America, over 600,000 new businesses start up and hire their first employees? Many will fail, but some of them will become the legendary businesses of the future, transforming industries and making millions for the angel investors who helped fund them in their early days. That’s the topic of our conversation today with David S. Rose, a serial entrepreneur, Inc 500 CEO and one of the world’s most active angel investors. I met (and interviewed) David several years ago in New York City, and am happy to have him back in this Career Strategy Channel podcast on TotalPicture Radio.

Angel investing, once the exclusive province of multi-millionaire high-rollers, has now entered the mainstream, with more than $20 billion being invested annually by individual investors in the US alone. Contrary to popular belief, access to these high risk/high return investments—and success in startup investing—doesn’t have to be a matter of luck or connections. David’s new book, Angel Investing: The Gust Guide to Making Money & Having Fun Investing in Startups shows how smart investors with the right strategy and a long-term perspective can achieve annual returns of 25 percent or more from a well-designed angel portfolio.
