It’s really has been amazing to be amongst so many HR professionals in the last few years. I remember in my “working years” in the corporate world, when you’d try to avoid HR most of the time. Anyone else been there? Maybe it was because it meant paperwork or something unrelated to the sales job is was in charge of accomplishing. My last “real job” (as I like to call it) before leaving the corporate world for a professional speaker, was a VP of Sales in the Title Insurance industry.
However, in the past several years I’ve been the opening keynote speaker, closing keynote speaker or somewhere in the middle keynote or motivational speaker for many state and national conferences in the HR industry. AND NOW I must say. . . they are some of my favorite people in the world. The passion and authenticity of so many people that I’ve met around the world has been amazing.
Here are two faves from Arkansas below. (and NOT only because they say very nice things about me). I was thankful to have met many in Arkansas recently as the closing funny motivational speaker at the AR SHRM state council conference.
If you’re an HR professional, I highly recommend looking at SHRM for all of it’s educational, professional development and networking resources. It’s the best of the best.
Or, of course, if looking to create impact at your HR conference with a funny motivational speaker that also brings leadership and personal development along with proper credits of course – I’d love to connect.
Thanks Arkansas SHRM, It was a pleasure and hope to see everyone at the National SHRM Convention in New Orleans in June.
