INTELLIGENCE GATHERING FOR THE INTELLIGENT SOURCER

SOURCING FOR THE CURIOUS & CREATIVE

IRINA SHAMAEVA // BRAINGRAIN

There is never one best Boolean String or one best site to source. We get the best results if we ‘combine’ tools and sites. Join us for a workshop where we’ll be practicing elements of navigating searches using the best sourcing sites and tools in combination. The fun, fast-paced presentation will start with a brief intro on common-sense ways to select sites and choose and combine relevant tools, depending on target industries and locations. In particular, we’ll learn ways to identify if an association or conference site has posted lists with the right audience, and how to get hold of the lists. We’ll go over a few sourcing tips – such as uncovering hidden names on LinkedIn and verifying email guesses using Facebook. We’ll then proceed to hands-on brainstorming on how to best search for the targets that the audience (You!) will submit.
