We're now organising the second Connecting HR Tweet-up (a London based meet-up for HR people using or interested in social media including Twitter).
The first event, held on the 29th March was very well received with some 60+ attendees from organisations including Betfair, Pizza Express, Sega, Leonard Cheshire, BT, Symantec, Talis, Mayborn Group, CM Murray and London Overground. The CIPD also attended as did most of the major HR journalists and websites including Personnel Today, XpertHR, HRZone and Changeboard.
Once again, we'll be meeting in a private room in The Square Pig just North of Holborn Station.
And once again, the event will be free to attend, including drinks, sponsored by Courtenay HR.
The event is open to:
- Individuals currently working inside an organisation as an HR, Recruitment, L&D, OD, Internal Communication Professional.
- Journalist, Academic or Representative of Professional Body.
Note to Suppliers and independent consultants
The event is also open to a limited number of suppliers and independent consultants who are active in or have extensive experience of Social Media and who can share this knowledge with the HR attendees. We are limiting the number of attendees in this category to ensure that the event provides the most value for the members of the HR community.
Interested suppliers should contact the organisers directly and NOT book a place using the eventbrite system. In the interests of creating a value added event for the HR community suppliers who wish to attend are also asked to:
- Nominate and bring along an HR client or contact
- Agree not to do any selling!
Please contact us if you are unsure about your status.
The event is designed as an informal networking and sharing opportunity. We are hoping to include a few short 'open mic' sessions at intervals during the evening to give the attendees a chance to ask questions and share their experiences. Further details will be posted nearer the time. We will also be sharing more details of the first HR 'Unconference' to be held in the UK.
We're sure this will be a really great networking event and we look forward to seeing you there!

Are you an Internal Recruitment specialist? If so then here are some details about another potential event for you! If you are in London on the evening of Thursday the 10th June why not pop along to The Recruiters Network Event. A little bit of information:
Taking place in central London: Thursday 10th June. Running from 6.00pm to 9.00pm. Numbers will be limited to create a more business like environment for networking. However, don't worry we'll still be offering you a free drink on arrival! As well as the opportunity to network there are two speakers (Stephen O'Donnell and Fiona Lander) talking about relevant industry topics. The number of industry suppliers is being limited at this event so that the majority of attendees are recruitment professionals.
