Last week my wife, my youngest son and I traveled to Memphis to visit our oldest son on Easter Sunday. I had artfully carved out a piece of time for myself to do something that was rather self-indulgent. I had also scheduled to meet-up with a twitter friend, soemone I had met on line, but had not had the chance to meet IRL. We got her done, and and met up with Chris Fields (a.k.a. new_resource on Twitter). I brought along the wife and both of the boys as well. So Chris got a chance to see me as I truly am. Chris had one of his friends drop by and join-up with us as well. As I had suspected, Chris is pretty much the same guy in person that he is on-line. This is a trait I have found in people that I like and that tend to develop successful on-line realtionships
Meeting in MemphisAfter visiting with Chris I got a better understanding of him and who he is. He is passionate about everything he does. He knows his HR stuff, and while I didn’t quiz him, I learned a lot from the comments he made and some of the questions he asked. Chris is an “A” player when it comes to HR and Social Media.I am also happy to talk about another matter that involves the two of us (Austin Powers reference here). That matter would be Illinois SHRM. Both Chris and I will be pushing out social media from the August event. The Social Media Team from Illinois has asked , and Chris has agreed to be part of our Illinois SHRM Social Media team. So this is to all of my social media pals; now you know a little bit more about @new_resources, and have a reason to come join us at ILSHRM Augsut 6 & 7 in Oak Brook, IL. Hope to see you there!
