With the kickoff of LinkedIn’s 10th Talent Connect less than a week away, we hope you’re as excited as we are for what promises to be a fun and insightful three days in Dallas. Over 4000 talent professionals from around the world will be attending to celebrate our community, get inspired, and learn from the best in the business.
But don’t worry — if you can’t make it to Texas this year, there are still plenty of ways to get in on the action. Whether you’re working from home, setting some time aside at the office, or checking in on your phone while you’re on the go, it’s easy to watch, join the conversation, and participate in this year’s Talent Connect from September 25-27. Here are some of your options:
1. Reserve a virtual seat for the livestream
If you can’t join us in person, tuning in to the livestream — Talent Connect Live — is the next best thing. It’s like having a virtual front-row seat where you’ll be able to watch keynote presentations, demos of LinkedIn’s newest products, exclusive one-on-one speaker interviews, and more.
Register today to reserve a spot and you’ll get the latest updates on the agenda, speakers, and ways you can participate — including expert advice on how to improve your LinkedIn profile (#RockMyProfile) and your company’s job posts (#RockMyJobPost).
And if that isn’t enough, watching the livestream can also win you tickets to Talent Connect 2020. To enter, snap a photo of your viewing party (on your own or with your team), post it on social media with the hashtag #TC19LiveStream, and stay tuned on the last day of the event to see if you were chosen as the lucky winner.
2. If you can’t watch live, check out full-length videos of the keynotes at your leisure
Time zones and work schedules may mean that you can’t watch the livestream, but that doesn’t mean you’ll miss out on our roster of incredible keynote speakers — including Dean Carter, CHRO of Patagonia; Cynthia Marshall, CEO of the Dallas Mavericks; Mariana Atencio, national correspondent at MSNBC & NBC News; and Jeff Weiner, CEO of LinkedIn.
Look for the videos on YouTube or access them here. (Bonus tip: This is also where you can watch keynotes and breakout sessions from past Talent Connect events.) This year’s keynotes will be available soon after each talk is finished, so you won’t have to wait long to catch up on what you missed.
3. Follow along on LinkedIn — or any other social channel — for conference highlights
Keep up with all the event’s happenings at LinkedIn’s Talent Solutions Showcase page, but you can also get your Talent Connect fix and up-to-the-minute news, highlights, and snackable content by following us on your preferred social channels:
