I really enjoy running the IoD People Forum for Surrey and am looking forward to our 2012 season.

The Forum has been developed and designed to be particularly helpful for business Owners, Directors and Managers who have direct employee responsibility, to human resource and learning & development practitioners, to employment lawyers and anyone else who is responsible for the ‘people side’ of the business.

our Top Priority is sharing ideas and energy on any and all aspects of finding, recruiting, employing, developing, leading and exiting people in these interesting times.

Conversation is critical to the ethos of the Forum and, right from the start, I was keen to embed 3 principles:

  1. No fixed, restrictive agenda (but the meeting will be facilitated by me)
  2. No ‘Talking Head’ presentations telling you stuff you already know
  3. No selling to be subjected to

Topics for conversation and resultant committed outputs are determined on the day. Our priority is the practicalities of people management and business decisions.

We meet every 2 months on the first Friday of the month, kicking of the year with our 6th January meeting in Guildford. The meeting runs from 0715 to 0859.

So if you would welcome an early morning coffee in Guildford with like minded individuals any First Friday just let me know, and I can arrange for you to attend. The Forum is usually only open to IoD members but we do invite guests who are interested in pursuing IoD membership as part of their personal development and business networking strategy.
