Welcome to this week’s batch of metro Atlanta business networking leads! Here you’ll find all manners of things networking related – job leads, appointments, news, interesting Georgia-based solutions, and more. Remember, you can contribute to this list each week by contacting me!
And of course, the proverbial ground rules: For certain leads, I must be careful not to disclose too much information – I want to be respectful of the confidentiality and trust I have established with people. In those instances, I realize that I may need to act as a conduit for interested parties, in order to protect the anonymity of certain of these leads. However, I will aspire to provide as much information as possible here in the text, so that you can contact each other directly (I really *don’t* want to get into the habit of playing middleman, other than passing along contact information).
If you have something that you would feel to be of merit for this new section of the Pothole, by all means, let me know (spammers and open solicitors need not apply). And don’t forget to browse some of the past networking leads – many of them are still active!
If you are looking for a Six Sigma, Lean Enterprise, Sarbanes-Oxley, or Project Management professional, you owe it to yourself to take a look at TalentRegistry.com. Every candidate they accept into the Talent Registry is thoroughly vetted and screened. The service is operated by a couple of my friends, Fred Johnson and Bill Bentley, and if you know these two guys, you know that what you are getting is top-notch stuff. If you are a job seeker in one of the aforementioned categories, check them out as well!
An Atlanta Bio Tech firm is looking for Sr. Director of e-Commerce. This person must be a heavy e-Commerce strategist – not so much a technologist. If you are interested, let me know and I’ll forward you along.
My friend, former next-door-neighbor, and fellow entrepreneur Chris Miller, one of the original founders of 6figurejobs.com, is at it again. This time, he is launching a service called AtlantaExecutive.com. The site aims to be a comprehensive career management resource for executives in the Atlanta-Metro area. Their services are free for executives and they focus on the career management needs of professionals in the $100K+ range. If you are an executive in the six-figure range and work in, or desire to work in, the Atlanta-Metro area, then this site is for you. Their staff tirelessly researches and aggregates the information and resources necessary for you to continually advance your career and expand your career network. Check ’em out!
If your small or mid-size business would like some heavy-duty human resources capabilities, but can’t afford to bring in the full-time heavy guns, check out Bill Harris and the rest of the gang at FlexHR. These guys can work a deal with you where they will consult part-time with you, and help you with putting together your policies, plans, and other procedures. Good stuff!
Finally, as a reminder, if your firm is in need of executive talent, let me know. I routinely am in contact with many talented executives (C-level, VPs, Directors) that are in transition and are anxious to dig into new and exciting opportunities.
