What is Shally's Alley?

Shally's Alley is a weekly video segment broadcast live on Fridays at 1pm US Eastern Time.It started as a small Facebook Group at the very beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. I created it as a way to keep in touch with colleagues and maintain a positive mindset. Like a "group chat" or "virtual coffee hour" we would hop on a video call and discuss what was on our minds. It served to lift our spirits and keep us connected, then grew into something much bigger that gives back to the community. After the group reached 3,000 members I bought some streaming tools and started broadcasting live on LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube and Twitch directly from Zoom. Now thousands of people watch live as I have meaningful conversations with featured guests from all areas of Talent Acquisition and Human Resources!From what I am told by guests the appeal is that I keep things raw and practical, nothing contrived. The show is free for anyone to view. We have no sponsors, ads, monetization or commercial ties of any kind.Topic:
TA transformation and TA leadership burning issues of the day, and leading through rapid change, with a lens on finding or attracting talent.
Global. The largest following is from (in declining order): US, UK, Canada, India, EU.
