Kay Kelison It had been a while since I had attended a SourceCon conference! Then I received an email notice on the topic “Can we Automate Being Human?” It piqued my interest because it’s a subject I have been thinking about as well. I was happy I opened it, I knew right away that I needed to meet her! Katrina’s SourceCon keynote, “Can we Automate Being Human?” really brought life back into our industry! Thank you, Katrina, for bringing back “human” part of HR. Katrina, you’re the real deal and so much more!”

We invited Katrina to speak to our membership of 160 recruitment business leaders on best practice candidate engagement. So pleased we did – not only did she stimulate, inspire, engage our membership brilliantly, Katrina’s session was packed with so many practical tools and tips that gave the guys some real tangible value. If you want energy, best practice, insights (and someone who stays very cool when there is an AV breakdown), I strongly recommend Katrina.

Pete RadloffWhat makes Katrina stand out is her engaging personality and energy. She captures the attention of the audience and keeps them engaged the entire way through, which is rare. Her content is contextual, relevant and able to be put into practice by recruiters – tomorrow. She’s a fantastic human, someone people want to spend time with. If you are looking for some training for your team, I’d highly suggest having a conversation with Katrina!”

Wendy Rabel - Testimonial for Katrina Collier HR & Recruitment SpeakerI recently had the pleasure of seeing Katrina present to the Talent Acquisition Summit in Dallas, Texas. Katrina’s presentation style is smack-you-upside-the-head-engaging! She challenged a room of seasoned TA professionals to think outside the box when sourcing hard-to-find talent and to boldly pick up the phone and engage in authentic, live conversations with prospects when building a talent pipeline. If you get a chance to see Katrina live, DO IT!

That magical moment in 2015 when Katrina found herself on stage with industry legends! 💛
