During the week of August 16th – 22th, I will be attending Disney Institute in Orlando, FL to take an up close and personal look at their “Business Excellence” program. This five-day program is packed with topics ranging from “Training and Career Management” to “Creating Engagement and Commitment.” If that weren’t enough, a number of friends will be coming along for the journey. Alicia Arenas, Mark Stelzner, Mike VanDervort and a few others who are in the confirmation process.
On the 17th of August, I will be sitting on a panel at HR Florida with an amazing crew of bloggers for “Blogging and HR: Can the Two Peacefully Coexist?” Kris Dunn, Jessica Lee, Laurie Ruettimann, Sharlyn Lauby and Mike VanDervort will all be a part of this exciting panel!
Back to Disney for class and then out the door again on August 19th for a session that I’ll be giving at HR Florida called “Twitter for HR & Recruiting”. I’ve put together a packed session for the group about how to do everything from starting up with Twitter to how one goes about attracting a targeted candidate pool. It ought to be fun!
Back to Disney for the remainder of the class and then home to San Antonio, TX the following Sunday.
On Monday the 24th, I leave for Chicago, IL to speak at the Skilled Recruiters Network event about Red Shoe Project. RSP is a huge passion of mine and I’m really excited to have the opportunity to share more about the project. Special thanks to Veronica Ludwig for making it happen!
So, why am I telling you all this? There is a method to my madness, I promise.
At Disney, HR Florida and during the Skilled Recruiters Network event, I’m going to be blogging and live-tweeting (the act of sending out messages on Twitter while events are occurring… for the record). That’s right… you may even see pictures of Mickey in real time! So, if you have questions that you’d like me to be on the lookout for, let me know. If you just want to see what kind of shenanigans I’m getting into, that’s okay as well! 😉
My Twitter account can be found at http://twitter.com/theredrecruiter – Feel free to send me a message by starting your “Tweet” with @theredrecruiter. I will get your message and do my best to respond to your questions.
So, what would you like to get out of my next few weeks? I’m attaching the brochure for the Disney Institute program that we’ll be attending. Lots of topics to ponder… that’s
