It’s hard to believe that Staffing World is upon us once again. We are looking forward to getting to Las Vegas and meeting as many of you as we possibly can. Before we take off, we wanted to take a moment to introduce you to the Haley Marketing Group team members you will see if you are attending the conference.
Get to Know David Searns, CEO of Haley Marketing Group
David claims he has lost track of how many times he has attended Staffing World – and when you’ve been in the business as long as he has, we’ll let his “memory lapse” slide. If you are a veteran of this ASA event, you know that David is always active at Staffing World, both as a presenter and an attendee. As our resident “OG” of the conference, we asked David what advice he would give new attendees. “PLAN AHEAD! There will be more you want to see and do than you can get done in 3 days, so plan the sessions you want to see, vendors you want to visit, and even the nighttime activities early. And if you can just give up sleeping for a few days, it helps!”
David is looking forward to “Seeing how ASA’s new format works out. More excited to see how our Smart Marketing Talk Show presentation works out (Thursday at 11:30 am… join us!).”
When asked what Staffing World attendees can learn from him, David said, “Anything about marketing and recruitment marketing they want to know! I’ll be scheduling one-to-one meetings with staffing execs to help them develop roadmaps for their 2020 marketing visions...but I know time will be limited, so anyone who wants a roadmap, please reach out before Staffing World!”
David expects to hear a lot of talk about technology like AI, chatbots, RPA and how these things can help with recruiting. He also expects to hear a lot of buzz and speculation about whether we are heading into another recession.
If you’re coming in early or extending your stay beyond the conference, David has visited Las Vegas more than 20 times. His advice on what to see and do? “Personally, I am a huge Cirque du Soleil fan, so Vegas is a bit like Mecca for Cirque fans. Mystere is an awesome show, thoroughly enjoyed Love, O, Zumanity and Zarkana (now closed). Still have to catch the Michael Jackson show, and just watched a trailer for a new show called RUN at the Luxor.”
Going to Staffing World? Meet with David!
David’s Staffing World schedule is filling up quickly, so contact us to secure a time to meet with him at the show (or any time before or after Vegas, as well).
And don’t forget, you can also catch David and Brad Smith, Director of SEO and Social Media, when they host the Smart Marketing Show on Thursday at 11:30 am. They will be joined by several expert guests who will provide practical, actionable marketing advice, and you can get in on the action too in the “Stump the Marketers,” segment.
See you at Staffing World!
