Reconverse is a series of learning and networking events for in-house recruitment professionals and suppliers. Our speed meeting and round table format sets us aprt from other industry event, with the focus on peer to peer learning and networking.

Reconverse was started in 2011 by Jamie and Lois Leonard. With over 20 years combined recruitment supplier experience, they saw a growing resistance to cold calling by in-house recruitment leaders, from job boards, technology providers and innovative new suppliers, all being lost in the sea of recruitment consultancy cold calls. They wanted to offer a way for in-house recruiters to meet a selection of hand picked suppliers (no rec cons), relevant to the event theme, in the most time efficient format possible and return the best use of their time. They came up with a unique speed meeting format, that would make them very different to other industry event, and be what they are best known for today. As they got to know the in-house market they found a group of professionals that wanted to learn from each other as well, but there were very few places to do so, outside of fleeting conversations over coffee at conferences. Reconverse added an in-house only round table to their events, which allowed the delegates to learn from each other in a controlled yet relaxed environment. Reconverse quickly become an industry leading series of events. By running intimate yet frequent meet-ups, instead of the norm, they were able to focus on key areas in silo, such as Candidate Experience, In-house Exec Search, Video in Recruitment, Recruitment Analytics and deep-dive into these subjects, like no one else could. Today Reconverse host two events a month, at the sharp end of the recruitment market.
