There is a reason the word “work” is in “network". It's because networking can actually be quite hard, but it doesn’t have to be!
The branch wanted to provide a relaxed and informal social opportunity for HR colleagues within the Birmingham area to connect and discuss all things HR, CIPD - simply an opportunity for you to chat and discuss topics, issues that are “hot” in your business with like mind people.
Whilst there is no fixed agenda, or speaker, your branch committee has had many enquiries recently from our members about the committee and lots of expressions of interest in working closely with us in leading the Branch activities. As such, we thought it would be a good time to combine the two – to have a networking based social event and to give anyone who is interested in becoming more involved in the branch a way to meet the current committee members and discuss their areas of interest further.
Interested? If so, book your place and join us from 18:30 – 20:00 on Tuesday 28 June at Hotel du Vin in Birmingham and start to make meaningful connections, perhaps share knowledge, best practice, make friends and find out more about volunteering for the CIPD. Don't be shy, we are a really relaxed and friendly bunch and we will even provide a few drinks and nibbles too!
