Hi Erik,

After hosting the HR Carnival (yes, that's right, the controversial one, where i got myself into trouble, oh well...) I found your website fascinating. I get a lot of research and press releases from the Chartered Management Institute over here in the UK, and the director occasionally writes a posting for us based on their research. Would love for you to guest write a couple of postings so we can compare trends across the big pond (UK/United States).

Let me know if you'd be interested?
