Speed Networking

The Emerging HR Professionals Network is pleased to present the second event in our 2019 series, focused on helping you make the most of the AHRI and broader HR community. The events and forums will have a common theme around networking, and combine theory with opportunities to practice and hone your skills with other like-minded professionals.

The best way to feel more comfortable and confident when networking is to practice!

This event - Speed Networking - will allow you to practice and further develop your networking skills with your HR peers, colleagues, prominent HR leaders, and networking professionals in an informal environment.

We have partnered with HorizonOne Recruitment to bring you this event.  As expert networkers, HorizonOne consultants will provide 'in the moment' examples of how to extend your HR network in a natural and authentic way.

Networking isn’t just for real estate agents, recruiters, lawyers or people with business to sell. It’s also not just for sales people who like the sound of their own voice. Knowing how to build, cultivate, manage and leverage your network is an important tool for all, whether they be new or experienced, private or public, extrovert or introvert. Learning how to embrace networking is the first step to engaging in Network Leadership.

The other upcoming events in the series include:
Speed Mentoring Event (November) – a huge success last year, a number of experienced, senior HR practitioners have again generously volunteered their time to offer pearls of wisdom, gold nuggets of advice and show you the silver lining. Learn from their successes and mistakes, and take the chance to ask the direct questions you’ve always wanted to ask.

NB: attendance at prior events is not required to register and attend this event.

More events are being planned – keep an eye on the AHRI Events and Networking website for updates!
