Johnny is the founder and CEO of Social Talent, a company that has the lofty ambition to improve the productivity of every professional worker in the world with better knowledge, tools and data to be better at what they do.
Everyone has to start somewhere so Johnny and his team have started with recruiters and so far they’ve turned nearly 15,000 recruiters from companies like Cisco, Intel, GE, Manpower, Randstad and Pontoon into Sourcing Ninjas.
The company’s platform is used in over 90 countries by more than 1,000 companies and their blog is read by nearly 100,000 recruiters a week.
Johnny’s wife and family still thinks he find people jobs and his 3 kids think he is a trained assassin. The truth lies somewhere in the middle.
As CEO and co-founder of Social Talent, I lead the company’s product strategy, marketing and content teams. My co-founder Vincent will tell you that he makes the money and I spend it. He’s not wrong.
I am a regular keynote speaker at any event that will take me! I have a particular love for recruiter performance and the dynamics of international recruitment. I find 60 minute keynotes easy, 10 minute keynotes hard. Engaging an audience of 2,000 HR & Recruitment professionals is second nature to me. Trying to get my wife and 3 boys to listen to me, now that’s hard.
I strive constantly to do brilliant things but always smile, even when I fuck up. Life’s too short for mediocrity or regret.
