Congrats to +Greg Savage for getting his Huffington Post blog "How did it get to be `ok` for people to be late for everything?"  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/greg-savage/lateness_b_4169441.html 
Why do people, invited for a dinner party at 7:30, think it's cool to arrive at 8:30? It's rude. It's inconsiderate. And it's selfish.

I'm really going to try and make this event! +Tim McDonald you always put together great conversations!
 
Not all community management is online. Some never touch social media. Then others take online and merge it to building incredible offline communities through events. Regardless of if you currently host events, use them in your business or are just thinking of it, you won't want to miss this #cmgrhangout . +Shannon Mischuk, principal of #BlissDom   #Canada  


We will host a LIVE Google Hangout at 2pm EST NY-USA (find your local time here http://ht.ly/jjG3U) on Friday, July 26, and you are invited!


Join us this week as +Jonathan Brewer  and +Tim McDonald  will be Hosting the Hangout with +Shannon Mischuk  and +brandie mccallum and hopefully +Sherrie Rohde will being moderating the Twitter chat #cmgrhangout        
Don't forget to confirm you are attending and be on the lookout for a G+ notification about 1:55pm is you want to join the hangout.
Want to participate on Twitter? Watch here or on YouTube and use #cmgrhangout   when tweeting.

Let's discuss ways you can attend. 
Watch: You do NOT need to join the hangout. Just stay on the Google+ Event and you'll see the video on YouTube (don't worry, it will be there and start playing as soon as the broadcast begins)
Talk and Be Seen: If you decide you want to talk, not just watch, click to join the hangout when we post the link here or when you see the notification. Do NOT click the link to join the hangout if you are just here to watch. 
Chat: You can watch here and/or follow the conversation on Twitter using #cmgrhangout  

Why are we asking you to follow these instructions? Many think they need to join the hangout just to listen in. This takes up a seat from someone who wants to actually talk and be seen and participate in the hangout. So please be considerate to everyone and remember, just because you don't see the video yet, does not mean it won't be there. It will. 
Any questions? Just let us know. Please don't wait until 2pm EST to ask questions. We're busy getting the hangout ready, inviting you to join and posting the YouTube video so everyone can participate the way the want to when we go live. 
Look forward to having you join us in the capacity of your choice! 

*If you join us on the hangout, a wired internet connection in preferred and if you have a headset with mic or earbuds, that works best for the audio. You will also need a working webcam.

Occupation
Director of Talent Acquisition and Engagement
Employment
  • viaForensics
    Director of Talent Acquisition and Engagement, present
    Being a Strategist and Tactician in Talent Acquisition, there are three things that keep me up at night: #1) More than 17 million Americans identified themselves as self-employed consultants, freelancers and temps, a number that is expected to grow to 24 million by 2018. #2) There is an alarming shortage of skilled talent across industries with a tremendous focus on the hyper competitive STEM marketplace. #3) Social media has arrived at the forefront of how people and organizations communicate, connect, refer, hire, sell and unfortunately complain. As you can see my “top three” can be viewed as challenges and/or opportunities based on you and your organizations perspective. I’m a passionate and disruptive Talent Acquisition and Social Recruitment executive with extensive experience in Recruitment, Technology, B2E Marketing, Employment Brand and HR consulting. I’ve consulted and recruited for Fortune 500 Human Resource and Marketing organizations, delivering strategy and tactics on how to best engage internal employees, targeted candidate groups, clients and prospects via social media and other on and offline channels. Mantras: ➢ Community engagement is driven by content and two-way dialogue. Online communities such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google +, Pinterest and many others enable online conversation largely driven by content that should create value for your target audience. ➢ HR is the new marketing: The emergence of new media is enabling employees to have their voices heard on a larger stage. Think of engaging employees and candidates in the same way you craft a consumer marketing strategy, though rather than securing buy-in for laundry detergent, you are selling a employee referrals, career opportunities and market awareness. ➢ Measure, measure, and measure: Creating benchmarks to measure campaign engagement is critical to success. If it's not measurable, then it cannot be improved.
