Why you need Katrina

Katrina Collier challenges conventional recruitment thinking, technology buzzword bingo and anyone who thinks a robot can do what we do! Instead she instills excitement and confidence into HR, recruiters and sourcers, who are encouraged to make better use of technology, source on the right social media sites, and engage with potential recruits humanely.

Katrina has trained HR & Recruiters in SMEs to global corporates around the world to source their new employees effectively on social media, using knowledge gained from over 11 years of social recruiting and full-cycle recruitment experience, both in-house and in agency.

Cutting through the industry hype, she will show you how to use the right social media sources for your recruitment, how to source efficiently, and how to increase response rates in this candidate driven market.


Katrina is a popular HR & Recruitment keynote, including for ERE, SourceCon, SOSU Sourcing Summits in AsiaPac, Europe, Africa & Canada, EVOLVE! Summit,RecruitDC, SRSC, HRus Israel, and even to the Singapore Government, and is quoted in HRReview, SHRM, The Staffing Stream, Cambridge University’s Strategies for Success and more. She is also the founder of DisruptHR London and an Ambassador for Retrak Charity.

When she’s not on a plane, you’ll find her tweeting @KatrinaMCollier and on InstagramLinkedIn & Facebook, championing the #BeHuman cause.
