I've wondered before whether we should try to organise something during Social Media Week in September?If we're refocussing the unconference on other things (eg brave HR) then this might be a good…Continue

In my day job, I am a consultant, researcher, writer and speaker focusing on strategic human capital management, HR 2.0 and management 2.0.

The reality, however, is that this can actually make it harder to identify and recruit graduates of the calibre your organisation needs. Even many exceptional candidates are missed by traditional recruitment processes and most applicants are getting little or no feedback, leaving them doubting their own…Continue
No questions about the main event next week: #cipd11 of course.
I know lots of you will be up in Manchester for this, and others just joining in the twitter stream.
Gareth and I will also be delivering a twitterversity session for twitter newbies each day (1.00pm on Tuesday and Wednesday and 10.15 on Thursday) and will obviously be promoting ConnectingHR. Please join us - at the event, or on the stream - for this, as the more conversation that's going on, the more likely it…Continue
