GCHRA HR Roundtable - 1/7/20

I know the December HR Roundtable was only last week, but with the holiday season happening so soon, I wanted to get the announcement out for January so you were aware of the meeting and could plan on attending !!


Networking. The majority of people don’t do this well. If they are “networking”, they’re looking at it as a way to do job seeking. When this is the sole reason to network, people fade back to anonymity once they secure their next role.

We need to see networking for what it truly is – a necessary business skill !! Networking is about people and relationships, not something that is self-centered and a means to an end. I am VERY passionate about networking and it is a great topic to kick of a brand new decade.

So, the January HR Roundtable topic is – “Networking – A Career Long Business Skill”

We’ll be gathering on Tuesday, 1/7/20 from 8:00am to 9:00am at Scarlet Oaks (directions are below).

Now, let me give you my HR Roundtable disclaimer for this meeting . . . .

I don’t want you to just come to this meeting just because of this topic. Come to the Roundtable because it’s a great forum to meet, network, share and learn on an on-going basis. Understand that we’re going to be very candid in this discussion because I want to see you equipped to be a great networker from now on !!

Please take a second to RSVP and send me an email at: sbrowne@larosas.com to let me know if you can make it.

See you there – Steve


Instructions for the HR Roundtable at Scarlet Oaks:

  • The HR Roundtable is open to one and all !!  The meeting has an HR/Business focus each month and we get together to discuss that topic as well as network.  So, if you’re in HR, are a small business owner, are a resource partner who works with HR folks, a professional in transition, etc. – you are welcome to attend the Roundtable !!
  • If you’re someone in transition, feel free to bring five (5) copies of the resume to the Roundtable to display. Make sure they’re stapled and not loose. You only need to bring five. It will be enough to help you network.
  • Place your resumes in the Job Role category that best fits your background. Please don’t spread them over several categories. People will find you and help you look. You can trust me on that.
  • The “dress” for the Roundtable is business casual. We’re not very formal and you’ll be fine however you dress. It’s more important to have you come and attend the forum !!
  • You can bring business cards, but don’t immediately pass them out when you get to the Roundtable. Get to know people first and see if they’d like a card. It doesn’t need to be your introduction.
  • Please come in and sign in for the Roundtable.  Note that if you go to any other Great Oaks door, you’ll be asked to have a picture ID and you will receive a Visitors badge as part of their security system.
  • Chances are I’ll be outside to greet you and welcome you to the Roundtable so you can find the right door to come and join the forum !!
