Notes from Charlie Duff!
Because we are totally radical, we made some notes. But probably not very good ones.
CHRU 3 meeting 1
Attending: Ailsa, Jon, Peter, Charlie, Mervyn, Gareth
Overview of last time
How much different and how much the same?
More formats needed - fishbowl etc
Pecha kucha is here to stay!
Mix it up - perhaps each time slot a different format
Suggestions: Artists? Live interaction? Live stream? Other formats? Drama? Graffitti artists?
Shout out to the community for creative skills
We need an icebreaker - world cafe networking
Decorate the space – zones? Beach, gym, office, garden...
Bring in unemployed etc to talk about the sharp end of HR - reconnecting must to the purpose of what we do.
How can we add more depth?
Pre-planning on tracks for deeper tracks advertised beforehand so there is some idea of what we will discussed. Outline of themes beforehand - electronic version of the grid?
Start this early – will help with sales etc
Try to change something - publish paper etc - lobby
Our own community had been hit - their stories. Self employment, etc
Alisa- talk to Darius, bring in young people etc
Gareth - Investigate types of format, publish on the NingNangNong
Post apocalypse HR - after the riots
New ways to engage
How can HR take action
The four HR horsemen...
The HR spring
What to do differently?
World cafe for icebreaker - ask a question each time, not so much for populating grid
Quickly grid, will be part populated already
Five different formats – one for each session
Energiser after lunch
Is there a demand for a social media surgery?
Community to develop something - data gathering, HR and technology, workshop, white paper
Case study: ConnectingHR changed my life
Reach out to community again for icebreakers
on boarding of newbies
Marketing and the tickets debate
Give a discount for 'plus 1' invite - discount for 2 – bring someone not part of the crowd
Community needs to work harder to spread the word – we're looking at you, there
Practitioner must be one of the tickets
We should target a few people - Gareth seems to know a load of people, so he can do some of that. Any superstar HR requests, throw them in the forum
Single tickets? £85 - £100 – if we sell singles at all...
2 people £150 by 5 Oct
More you bring the better! Whole HR teams etc

Thanks everyone for attending!
Just to conform to stereotypes, that second point is a bit 'out there' for me and would put me off a little ;). Do you think something like Building an HR Community for Social Good would work...or does that sound too worthy?
Seriously though, I think that they are great topics and we have many people (Anne-Marie, Anne McX, Neil) who have some good input on this. Would recommend we shell out £4 for the Economist this week as they have a 14 page section on the future of work. Interesting snippets like 27% of companies don't think they have the talent to pursue their business plans - in which case maybe they need to change their business plans?!
