May 8, 2013 – Brooklyn, NY – Seth Godin, Business Week’s “Ultimate Author for the Information Age”, has joined the panel of keynotes set to present at the Human Capital Institute’s Strategic Talent Acquisition Conference. This event, taking place at the Boston Park Plaza on June 10-12, continues to attract speaking talent dedicated to addressing a business world where, according to a 2012 Manpower survey, “49% of U.S. employers currently have difficulty filling mission-critical positions.”
Seth Godin is the author of 17 books that have been bestsellers around the world and have been translated into more than 35 languages. You might be familiar with his books Linchpin, Tribes, The Dip, and Purple Cow. In addition to his writing and speaking, Mr. Godin is founder of squidoo.com, a fast growing, easy to use website. His blog (which you can find by typing “seth” into Google) is one of the most popular in the world.
Recently, Mr. Godin once again set the book publishing world on its ear by launching a series of four books via Kickstarter. The campaign reached its goal after three hours and ended up becoming the most successful book project ever done this way. His latest, The Icarus Deception, argues that we’ve been brainwashed by industrial propaganda, and pushes us to stand out, not to fit in.
Mr. Godin joins an impressive roster of talent acquisition professionals, including Steven van Aperen, Human Lie Detector, author, and Director of SVA Training; Dr. John Sullivan, CEO for Dr, John Sullivan & Associates; David Lee, Global Employer Brand Leader for Amazon; Annissa Deshpande, Corporate VP, Global Talent Acquisition for AECOM; Michael Runyan, AVP Talent Acquisition & Staffing, USAA; Lars Schmidt, Senior Director, Talent Acquisition & Innovation for NPR; and Dan Schawbel, Founder of Millennial Branding & Author of “Promote Yourself”.
