Every once in a while I like to give you, my readers, an update of where you can catch me live.
Next week, you have two chances to hear me from the comfort of your desk:
On Thursday, September 6, at 1 pm EDT, I’ll be making my triumphant return to DriveThru HR, the Internet’s most popular daily radio show covering human resources. Listen live at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/drivethruhr, and share your thoughts on twitter using #dthr or @drivethruhr.
That same afternoon, at 3 pm EDT on September 7, I’ll be making my 7th appearance on The Proactive Employer radio show, hosted by Stephanie Thomas. This appearance, entitled Your Most Challenging and Bizarre HR Questions Answered, will be a little different. Instead of discussing a pre-arranged topic, I, along with Phil Miles, Robin Shea, and Eric Meyer, will be answering questions, live and unrehearsed, from Stephanie’s listeners. It should make for an interesting experience. If you have a weird or bizarre employment law question, or just want to chat, you can:
- Call on the listener Line: 1-888-553-6673
- Tweet questions with the hashtag #TPESHOW
- Login as “guest” to the show’s live chat and ask questions anonymously
If you’d rather see me live and in person, October and November give you four different chances to see me speak on my favorite topic, social media in the workplace.
On October 1, I’ll be in Uncasville, Connecticut, leading a panel discussion at the 7th Annual National Employment Practices Liability ExecuSummit entitled, Employment Law in the Information Age: Best Practices for Employers
On October 16, I’ll be in San Francisco, speaking at the GSMI HR Compliance Conference. I spoke at this same conference last year, and am very excited to make a return appearance. It’s a great conference because it is specifically tailored to to the concerns of strategic level decision-makers, legal staff, and HR pros and leaders. My topic: Think before You Click! Practical & Legal Guidance to Effectively Manage Social Media in the Workplace
I am also presenting Think Before You Click… at the 7th annual COSE Small Business Convention, on October 25, at the Kalahari Resort & Convention Center in Sandusky, Ohio. COSE’s SBC is the premier small business event in the country. Over two days it offers 48 educational workshops, six national keynote speakers, a business-to-business tradeshow, and hands-on learning labs.
Finally, I’ll be back on home turf on November 28, leading a panel discussion on workplace social media issues at the 2012 Midwest Social Media Summit.
If you are planning on attending any of these events, please reach out and let me know ahead of time so that we can meet. Or, just stop me and say hello.
Finally, if you are a fan of this blog (or others), you still have a whole week to submit your nomination(s) for the ABA Journal’s Blawg 100. The deadline is September 7, and the process is easy. Thanks for your support.
