I just came back from Sourcing Summit Europe, organized by Phillip Tusing and hosted by Randstad at their HQ in Amsterdam. This was a fantastic event, filled with excellent content and the spirit of camaraderie between sourcers from 15 countries.
On the photo above: I had a great time chatting with Balazs‘ team of young sourcers from Randstad.
There’s lots of posts and pictures about the event on the web. Here are some (use Google Translate where appropriate):
- “We broke the Internet”: Sourcing Summit Europe sets record (the title was so good that I decided to steal it for this post)
- Boolean Black Magic is a Poor Man’s Semantic Search (this is a copy of Jakub Zavrel‘s presentation; I must say that I warmed up to exploring semantic search again, after a few years of feeling sceptical about it)

- #SOSUEU: the day after
Check out the social media buzz at http://tagboard.com/SoSuEu. (There was about 2,500 mentions in two days, so you would have to scroll for a while.)
I very much enjoyed hanging out with fellow sourcers, finally met live some colleagues whom I knew only “online”, and made new connections as well. Take a look at some photo memories from my album on Google+
I’d love to summarize the #sosuhack’s and highlights from the event… but there is just too many to pack into a post. Glance over the tweets and the posts for a taste and don’t miss the next Sourcing Summit!
