Final reflections on Romania / HR 2.0 conference


      I really enjoyed my trip to Bucharest – a beautiful, green city, modelled on Paris by Ceauşescu and apparently supporting a strong community of HR professionals (Jason was only joking when he said you were hostile!).

I found it very interesting that 120 HR people would come to find out about web 2.0, and am not sure we would have generated the same level of interest in the UK (not that the interest was in any way unwarranted).  I’ve written about this on my latest blogosphere bulletin at HR Zone: ‘Dangers of a tyrannical approach to web 2.0’.

I’d also like to take the opportunity to recommend a former colleague who now works out of Bucharest to anyone who may be after some HR support there: Sinclair Stevenson at Premier Global.  Although I’d also be very happy to travel back…
