I think I mentioned before that I am speaking at a recruiting conference in Boston this September. Well, given that Boston is a great location for talent and I don't love flying, we decided to turn this into a recruiting trip. Basically, our recent trip down to the Silicon Valley was so successful that the recruiters here volunteered to come out to Boston if I could line up some quality interviews for them. “No problem” I said ; )
The Boston Product Management Association has offered to work with us on this, which I am really looking forward to. They will be putting out a notice to their membership a little closer to the event. There will be about 5 of us and we will be there for 3 or 4 days depending on a lot of factors. We are also going to ask the HBS Tech Jobs Yahoo group to let folks know we will be in town. Any other regional organizations that would like to work with us, feel free to let us know.
One additional reason for my excitement is that I love Boston. I've been a couple times and I think it's a fantastic site...cool, history, great food, culture, entertainment, shopping, etc. Can't wait.
Well, just wanted to put the word out there so that any great marketing folks in Boston can start to think about possibly meeting with us. Plus, now that I say publicly that I am going to do it, it means I need to get going on making arrangements.
