Peter Clayton, Ward Christman, Larry Cummings, TotalPicture interviewHRTech Collaboration News Podcast

Welcome to an all new WTF edition of BBOP - The HR Tech Collaboration Podcast. No this is not WTF and I'm not Marc Maron. However, the 3 C's have had a couple of WTF weeks - regarding Ward's life-time ban from the Venetian.

This is Episode 18 - I'm Peter Clayton and joining me in a couple of minutes will be the talk of Twitter - Ward Christman, and the @Chief_Connector, Larry Cummings.

On a positive note, I'm heading to New Orleans this week for the TAtech Fall Congress / Deal Center. Looking forward to working with Peter and Pete Weddle again this year, and catching up with a lot of friends at the Royal Sonesta. Chad & Cheese will be there - we've all received copies of Peter Weddle's new book, Circa 2118, so maybe we'll have a Circa 2118 book club in NOLA!

Chad and Cheese are hosting a start-up Death Match which we're going to film: Andreea Wade CEO, Max Armbruster CEO, Talkpush, Aman Brar, CEO, Canvas, Teg Grenager CEO, Uncommon Co. and David Bernstein, Head Of Partnerships, AllyO. Our friend Faith Rothberg CEO of College Recruiter is the Forum Chair this year. I'll tell you a little bit more later in the podcast.

 I'm brining my NYC DP Jolie with me - we've been working together for the past several months on a series of videos for the Using AI4HR online course produced by Future Workplace and powered on the NovoEd platform. The 5 week course launches today! If you're interested in knowing how  leading organizations like IBM, GE, Intel, Cisco, rLoop, Cognizant, Hilton, View Glass - are using AI in their HR and recruiting functions check out and use the code TOTALPICTURE for $100 discount if you decide to sign up.
