I first meet Maciej back in 2000 when he was the co-founder of the leading Polish and Ukrainian Job Board, Pracuj. Today, as Chief Investment Officer of Grupa Pracuj, Maciej is responsible for investments and the development of new ventures.

Jamie Leonard is a stalwart of our industry, having worked at Monster, Fish4 and Ladders he really understands the world of job boards. Today, Jamie runs a cool business called Reconverse, the model is beautifully simple; he finds great speakers, gets 15 senior HR and Recruiting people to attend for a day (no cost) and then he gets 10/15 vendors into the room and they get 15 minutes to speed pitch.
Those attending meet 15 vendors in one go, huge time saving, they get a great lunch, a top speaker and time to network – it’s awesome!
