Welcome boys and girls! HR Tech geeks, innovators, incubators, recruiters, sourcers, angels, VCs, vendors, start-ups, exhibitors, conference producers, optimists, pessimists, and a special shout-out and big thumbs UP to Canadian friends. Once again you've tripped-over the HR Tech Collaboration News Podcast, AKA BBOP (Build Buy or Partner?) Featuring the 3 C's: Larry Cummings, Ward Christman, and Peter Clayton.

Join us weekly on HR Tech Collaboration News - a Podcast where we review the most interesting trade shows, talent movements, M&A and Investor Deals, and dig into HR industry's daily dilemma - do we Build, Buy or Partner?

The HR Tech Collaboration Channel is produced by TotalPicture Media and HR Tech Advisor.

Last week the three C's (Larry Cummings, Ward Christman, and Peter Clayton), were in Toronto for HR Tech Summit, produced by Key Media. We have lots of interesting updates and tidbits to report. The Collaboration Zone at the HR Tech Summit hosted by Larry and Ward and sponsored by HR Tech Alliance was humming - and I'll let you in on a little secret - there were a couple of roundtable discussions organized by Brad Sutton from GSV (Global Silicon Valley), featuring Sarah Brenner and William Tincup - and the conversation centered around how HR tech Startups can work with influencers and analysts. It was amazing conversation. And later this week I will have the three of them on the TotalPicture Podcast for a repeat performance. You won't want to miss it. If you know Sarah and you know William you know it will be no holds barred, no punches pulled, and no bullshit. Would you like a preview? Here's an audio excerpt from a Skype video with Sarah I produced prior to the conference.

Peter Clayton: The whole video interviewing thing. It's amazing how that sort of, has shaken out because for so many years companies were terrified of using it for EEOC reasons, right?

Sarah Brennan: "That's not why. That's not why at all. I did a number of research studies on that and why people weren't using it. They were privately funded by the different investors and vendors in that space and were never published. The number one reason we got push-back and we heard companies say they were pushing back because they were afraid it was going to take their jobs away. Recruiters were intimidated by it."

So let's talk about Sin City - Las Vegas for a minute. How about Las Vegas in September, say the week of oohhhh... September 10th? I can tell you things related to HR Technology are being planned. A venue has been booked, and ideas are getting marinated. Collaboration and Openness is the name of this game, no dice need to be rolled, and no hall monitors will be present. This will be about relationships and community and sharing. Stay Tuned.  There will be no assholes behind curtains. Things are still a little sketchy but this will definitely happen. A well known Italian restaurant is involved.

Alright Ward and Larry, what are some of your takeaways from our time in Toronto?

There's one upcoming show both Ward and I will be attending on July 12th. HR TechTank in New York City at the Met Life Building right behind Grand Central. Ward, I know you'll be leading a HR Tech Alliances panel discussion so give us a preview of this event.
