Event details:

Join us at North London branch for insightful session during which we will discuss Social Media at work.

Using social media in HR

In this interactive session Gary will share some personal experiences of social media use and how he feels organisations, and in particular HR, can get better at using it – and why it might already be too late for some…


Speaker

Gary Cookson Chartered FCIPD, FLPI, MAC, REP Director, EPIC HR Ltd.

I’m Gary Cookson – a father of four, husband of one, and I also run my own business called EPIC, which helps people and places to Evolve, Perform, Improve and Compete.

I’m a CIPD Chartered Fellow, a Fellow of the Learning and Performance Institute, a qualified coach and member of the Association for Coaching, a Personal Trainer accredited by the REP, a teacher, a qualified workplace mediator, a qualified H&S professional, a distance learning tutor, and more besides.

Career-wise, before launching EPIC, I was Associate HR Director at the DBS, and HR Director at Trafford College. Prior to that I was doing HR/OD integration work at a new housing group, and before that I was Head of HR & OD at Golden Gates Housing Trust for 11 years and I also have experience of working in a call centre, a national charity and an international pharmaceuticals company. Prior to working in HR I qualified as a secondary school teacher (I taught History). I’ve also managed and delivered CIPD programmes for many years and have delivered face to face and distance learning qualifications for a range of providers and awarding bodies.

Outside work, I’m a keen sportsman – competing in triathlons regularly but also having led and managed some representative sports teams – a father to four lovely children, and husband of a long-suffering wife. It’s for them that I do everything I do.

I’m active on social media – follow me on Twitter, or connect with me on LinkedIn.
