    My first Google Hangout and not the best of pictures to introduce it… I am dreading to watch the video again. I am not ashamed to admit that despite my love for social media, this is my first ever Google Hangout. This shows that you do not need to know everything there is to know about these new technologies. You can choose what suits you and your needs. Pick and choose from a big and exciting catalogue. Try something out, love it and use it daily or vice versa never use it again. There is no need to be obsessed with social media and none of the speakers at our first ever Social HR conference are. We see the potential in this tool and we understand the change that it has brought to the profession.

    Ian Pettigrew has interviewed 4 speakers so far. All the Hangouts are available for you to watch on the CIPD Manchester blog. This will give you an idea of what you can expect to hear/do on the day. I don’t fancy watching my interview again, as I know I will hate it, however it is exciting to be promoting this #socialHRmcr conference.

    As I explain in the video, social media has helped me during my studies and professional career. I genuinely believe that it played a huge part in the success of my studies at University and it helped me find the job that I am in now and that I enjoy. I am a HR Advisor heavily focused in employee relations and of course social media has not changed the way I support and advise managers, but it has changed the way I think about myself, the profession, its future, what needs to improve and what needs to change. The learning that is readily available to everyone will trigger some thoughts, will encourage thinking and will ultimately develop you. The blogs I read, or even a tweet might strike the right cord and make you rethink the way you go about things in your professional and personal life. Social keeps you on your toes. It never allows you to become stale and outdated.

    As the ‘Social Media Co-ordinator’ for the CIPD Manchester Branch since January 2014 I have spent a bit of time trying to increase our presence especially on Twitter. Since the new year we have had a 40% increase in followers and some incredible coverage from conferences such as ‘Megatrends’ in March 2014, the Annual General Meeting in May and the NAP Conference at the beginning of June. The Branch committee has engaged with new and old members and is keen on getting everyone on board, as we wouldn’t want anyone getting left behind in this social media revolution. This conference/unconference is for everyone, from experts on the subject, to beginners, to business owners, to HR professionals and students. It will be a great chance to experience a different way of learning and a different approach to HR, Recruitment and L&D.

    This conference promises to have something for everyone and the best speakers on the subject. You will learn new tools and feel confident in using them and giving social media a go.
