It's Over... Next Up HR Florida

The 2010 Illinois SHRM State Conference is in the books.  While this blog may be somewhat biased the event was a success, with some fabulous keynotes and great break out session. Having a great conference was the objective. Mission accomplished!

Another objective for the year was to interject a substantial level of social media into the conference. We did that too, and quite well I think.  Along the way we did have one session that seemed to garner a lot of attention out on the tweet stream.  If you are reading this there is a good chance that you have already looked at this but the complete tweet transcript is located here.

I don’t want to expound upon who was right, or who was wrong. Here is what happened in my opinion. As technology and communication are evolving those of us who use these tools have to change to keep up with those change.  Sometimes these changes come so quickly, we as the users aren’t sure of the best way to use the tools. 

Mark Stelzner commented on the matter saying that it is just like a bad play review, only quicker.

More discussion has taken place on a blog post from Lance on Rehaul.  Again, these are just opinions here.

What does it all mean?  Times are and continue to keep changing.  The lines are going to continue to blur.

Sometimes things don’t work out exactly like you plan. 

In the end, it was all good.  No animals were harmed!

  1. From someone who did not attend the conference - it seems like it was a success. There was a lot of attention given to the conference which is great. I met a lot of attendees via the twitter stream and their feedback was good. At least social media was involved in the Illinois SHRM conferences. This was a big step and I credit you for doing so. Great effort by all.
