In the next few weeks I will be getting out of the ROC (finally) and hitting up a series of events in the coming days, and thought it made sense to summarize them here.
September 23 and 24 - Recruitfest 2009 - Toronto
I am really looking forward to this event. While I am not myself a recruiter, the tools and technologies that recruiters are adopting are really interesting to me, they are a part of my HR Technology class topics, and the chance to see a live Animal show were all too compelling to pass up.
September 25 - Heading to Ottawa to meet with my friends from Halogen Software. Regular readers of this blog will remember that Halogen has been a fantastic supporter of my class, and the HR social media space for a long time. I am really looking forward to learning more about their latest product developments.
In addition, we will do a special 'remote' HR Happy Hour show from the Halogen offices on Sept 25, more details on that show will be posted on the HR Happy Hour site.
September 30 - I am speaking on HR Technology at the WTPF annual professional development event in Washington, DC. The WTPF is a Business Forum for HR Professionals, comprised of Human Resources professionals and thought leaders in the Greater Washington Metropolitan Area.
September 30 - October 2 - The HR Technology Conference in Chicago. I will be meeting many leaders in the HR Tech space, getting interviews, doing some video blogs, and overall trying to learn and share as much as I can about the future of HR Technology.
I am talking to some folks about doing another remote HR Happy Hour show from HR Tech, more details to come.
November 6-7 - The HRevolution - Louisville, Kentucky. The first ever HR Blogging/Social Media Unconference. I am really excited about this event and have been honored to be a small part of the event planning. This promises to be a great time and I will be leading a session on new and innovative technologies that HR pros can leverage.
