References from last years

EVOLVE! Summit is a conference for professionals who care about trends, changes, and real-world experience. It’s a conference where you can gain inspiration from around the nation and the world. Every recruiter, every sourcer, everyone in HR who takes their work seriously should have this event in their calendar.

More events like this, please! Inspiring and motivating topics, professional speakers. The event just flowed, and had a dash of humor too. I’m looking forward to next year.

I can recommend the EVOLVE! Summit to everyone who wants to be more than just the average recruiter. Innovative opinions, with no trace of fear and no unneeded packaging, are exactly what you’ll hear at this summit. If you’re looking for people’s fresh ideas and experience, along with the outcomes of their recruitment efforts, these are the best-invested hours you can spend.

I was delighted to be asked to speak at the Evolve Summit in Brno the Czech Republic. I gave two presentations, Sourcing on Facebook and Candidate Engagement. Thanks to Michal Toman and all the organizers of Evolve for running a fantastic event.

Evolve was fantastic, and I’m glad I had the chance to participate. I’ve been at lots of HR events, but this—this was missing, nationwide. Here’s a thank-you to the whole team of organizers and speakers for their work. I look forward to next year.

A unique event with a great program and an atmosphere where you don’t just learn, you meet interesting people too.

I thank the organizers for a great event that married vast informational value and expert knowledge to informality. For me, it was also a chance to meet my colleagues in this field. Simply put: thank you for a unique experience, and I look forward to next year.

This is exactly what a recruitment event should look like. I didn’t expect they’d get it so right on the first try. Great speaker choices, topic combinations, event location... What more could you want? Maybe just pre-sales of tickets to the next Evolve :-)

For tram schedules, check HERE. Don’t worry; this site is available in English.

If you’re coming by car, you can park very close to the SONO building.

Of course not! Look forward to luxurious catering, music events, a photo corner, a chill-out zone, an exhibition space for partners, and naturally a fantastic after-party.

You’ll have plenty of high-quality food and drink available to you throughout the conference in the form of a well-balanced buffet.

For this year’s event we’re bringing you a great networking application Whova, made specifically for professionals who meet at conferences and company events, so you can share your profile, get to know other participants, and plan meetings with them.

Above all, we want for every one of you to feel comfortable. We recommend that you go “smart casual.”

Each speaker will be speaking in their native language, with simultaneous interpreting. 

Yes! All we ask is that you respect the speakers—don’t use a flash. Naturally professional photographers and cameramen will be in action too, and everything they record will be available to you as an attendee.

You can look forward to a great after-party right on-site—in the SONO Center’s music club with its great acoustics. :-)

You can stay right at the SONO Center itself! For more information, visit the  SONO Centrum website.

Absolutely! This conference is a good choice for both old hands and new faces. Recruitment never stops changing, and we all always have plenty to learn. 

Yes, no problem. Just choose which of the two days you prefer and join us for this single day.

You are of course invited for the evening party. :-)
