Sonru to sponsor Irish Recruiters conference and Fergal O'Byrne to present!

Unfortunately, Flexitimers will not be giving a presentation at October's Future of Recruitment conference but I'm very glad to say that one of Ireland's most respected IT professionals, Fergal O'Byrne will be replacing them and giving his views on the future of recruitment and also talking about the new venture Sonru he recently jointed as CEO.

Here's Fergal's bio and very much looking forward to his presentation:

Fergal joined Sonru, as Chairman in 2008, having previously been a business mentor to the company. He subsequently became CEO in September 2009, after serving as CEO of the Irish Internet Association for 4 years. He is an internet industry entrepreneur and founded Interactive Return (formerly webBusters) back in 1998. He is on the Board of Directors of IGOpeople.com, WINC, and CCD Ltd. He is also Chair of the Project Advisory Group for Fáilte Ireland's eBusiness Support Initiative.

He regularly mentors start up and seed capital companies in Ireland and Denmark. In 2004 he was awarded the Microsoft/IIA Net Visionary Internet Marketer of the Year Award. Fergal is a member of the Irish Internet Association, Marketing Institute of Ireland and Engineers Ireland.

Fergal's most recent book - 10 Online Marketing and Search Engine Essentials was published by Thompson Books. He has been a guest lecturer on the MBA course at the Smurfit School of Business, Dublin. He was part of the original team that helped to set up eircom.net and was Content Development Manager in charge of such projects as the Doras Directory. He holds an Honours Degree in Electronic Engineering from DIT, Kevin Street.

I'm also glad to say that Sonru will be also one of the sponsors for the event!
