My favourite session yesterday was Nick Shackleton-Jones (@shackletonjones) on the use of social media supporting online learning at the BBC. I was going to blog on this, but Rob Moss from Personnel Today got their first, so see his summary on this.
Instead, I thought I’d write about the use of social media at the CIPD conference itself.
There have been quite a few of us blogging and tweeting, and in many ways, this has led to the development of a small community, sharing experiences and learning with everyone else through social media, but also face-to-face between ourselves. At times, it’s felt like a conference within a conference.
So, thanks for a great conference everybody!

Well done to the CIPD for raising the role of social media this year. There’s still a way to go, but it’s been a very good start.
A few other non-Twitter peeps (I won’t say ‘muggles’ again!).
