Welcome to the People Management Breakfast Website
Who we are
We are a group of individuals whose business role involves managing people. We represent a range of professions, ages, genders, sectors and business size, but the common thread is an interest in people.
Where we are based
Because contact starts by joining a group within LinkedIn, there are members all over the world. We are affiliated to the Hampshire Chamber of Commerce, and with the help of our sponsors listed below, we currently run face-to-face meetings in Winchester, Hampshire and Dorchester, Dorset.
- To arrange, on behalf of the Chamber of Commerce, regular meetings and seminars
- To promote the development of people
- To encourage and support those involved in the business of people and cultures
The clue is in the name – we meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month over a hot drink and pastries (see ‘events’ for specific dates). There is no charge for the meetings except in July and December. At other times, drinks and pastries are by kind courtesy of Dutton Gregory Solicitors. Though informal, the usual meeting format is:
|08:15 – 08:30||arrival, networking|
|08:30 – 08:40||introductions, announcements, tea or coffee and pastries|
|08:45 – 09:30||guest speaker or round table discussion|
|09:30 – 09:40||Informal networking, disperse|
Because we have a wealth of expertise within the group, normally one of the members leads a discussion on an area involving their specialism in people management. When the opportunity arises we welcome a guest speaker to provide updates, information or food for thought.
Subjects have included employment law, HR training, recruitment, retirement, redundancy issues, stress/health, voluntary work, travel-related illness and property / accommodation issues. The only constraint is that the subject relates to people in business.
We are grateful to Dutton Gregory Solicitors, who welcome us to their offices and provide provide a room, drinks, pastries and booking administration. Hampshire Chamber of Commerce and Winchester Business Improvement District provide invaluable marketing support.
