San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
ConnectingHR have held a number of Tweetups over the last few years which have been very successful, although all events have so far been in London. This event in Manchester is the first ConnectingHR event to be held outside London and is being organised by some members of the ConnectingHR community who are based in Manchester. The twitter hashtag for this event is #ConnectinghrMCR
If you've not come across or been to a tweet-up before, it's simply a face-to-face meet-up for HR people using or interested in social media (including Twitter) although the event isn't really about tweeting, it's about chatting and connecting, plus a bit of drinking, with like-minded and sociable people working in and around HR (including Engagement, Employee Relations, Recruitment, L&D, OD, Reward and Internal Communications etc etc).
If you've not come across ConnectingHR, we're a community of these sociable HR people. As well as the tweet-ups, we run fabulous unconferences and may do some additional things in 2013. And we're online at www.connectingHR.org, through you'll generally find more chat over at Twitter using the hashtag #connectinghr
And if you've not come across ConnectingHR's tweet-ups then you've missed out on some great gatherings which have included attendees from a wide range of organisations. The CIPD have also attended as have most of the major HR journalists and websites including Personnel Today, XpertHR, HRZone and Changeboard.
The event is designed as an informal networking and sharing opportunity.
Jon Ingham, one of the founders of ConnectingHR will be coming along and will be buying a couple of rounds of drinks on behalf of ConnectingHR.
But you won't really understand what it's like till you come and join us. So give us a go - come along to Epernay Champagne Bar in Manchester on 27th March and say hello!
