Hey Everybody,

Welcome to Issue No40!


Thank you to everyone for their kind words and fantastic support. It’s been an amazing week of growth for this newsletter – we’re up 14% from last week! In particular, special thanks to Matt Alder, Ruth Manning-Doetz, Andrea Kirby, Sam Cameron, Marcin Hordyniec, Glen Farrell, Becs Wells and Rene Bolier for your very public endorsements – it was humbling to read your words and really motivating for me to keep on curating the content and dishing out the brainfood every week.

For those who want to discuss the topics raised in this digest, I’m hosting Ep3 of the Recruiting Brainfood CrowdCast this week. The focus is going to be recruitment tech and why it doesn’t solve the problem. As a vendor this is going to be tough one(!) so make sure to join me and my co-host, Nick Yockney, Head of Talent at KALO this Wednesday 3.30pm BST.
