Workshops: every year Sourcing 7+ plans interactive workshops for hands-on classroom training to the sourcing community. These workshops cover a wide range of subjects that sourcers should find extremely valuable. The format allows participants to learn from quick-hit presentations about new tools, techniques, and strategies, and then do a deeper dive into the topics directly with presenters in a round-table “speed dating” format. We hope to encourage more hands-on learning and engagement with presenters as well as other attendees. Workshops are typically held during the week right after working hours at various locations around the Seattle and Bellevue area. Topics are typically a mix of tactical and strategic, and aim to provide tangible take-aways to attendees that can be immediately implemented.
Fall Roundup: each fall, we tap the local community to share new tools, tricks, and strategies that they’ve picked up over the course of the year – either through attending events or learning from their peers. Similar to the Ignite event model, presenters take 5-10 minutes to share one new sourcing technique, tip, or approach so we can showcase the vast amount of knowledge our awesome community has to offer. It’s our best-attended event each year and we allow the community to drive the content.
