Bournemouth, Poole and District

This is my 2nd year serving as the Chair for the Bournemouth, Poole and District Group, part of the Wessex Branch of the CIPD.
The committee consists of Louise Woodward as Secretary, Donna Stonehouse as Treasurer and committee members: Bob Cox, Jonathan Saunders, Ned Seabrook, Averil Brown, Barras Stone, Jasmine Sharma, Heather Muirhead, Mark Saddington and Lucy Stocks. I would like to thank the committee for their support during 2013/2014 and look forward to working with them again in 2014/15.

As one of the largest Groups in the country, I am keen to attract more members to our events and the programme we have planned for the coming year will cover topics that I hope will be relevant for members operating across a wide range of businesses and HR sectors. I would value any comments or feedback from our members on our events as we go through the year.

We have set up a Linked In Group for you to join where you can check up on events, provide feedback or pose questions or queries, so please join the group to stay in touch.

Our first event will be an evening event held in October which will be a Legal Update from Kemp Jones Solicitors on Monday 13th October 2014 at the Bournemouth Football Club, we will holding some breakfast events which may be more convenient for some of you to attend.

For details of the forthcoming events for 2014/15 please go to our Linkedin site or our events page as we no longer send out ‘hard copy’ details of the year’s agenda.

I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible at our forthcoming events and do please feel free to let me know any ideas you have for future event topics.
