Live from #SHRM15 – It’s a Wrap! Lessons Learned.

The largest HR conference in the world, SHRM National 2015, concluded this week on Wednesday.  As I reflect back on the conference for 2015, I wanted to share some thoughts and learnings I got from the conference. Here are my thoughts in no particular order: 1. The Expo is still overwhelming.  700+ vendors and some of the SHRM veterans tell me it’s smaller than…

Dawn Burke talks Late Preppin’ For #SHRM15 Conference: No Sweat

I’m busy. You’re busy.

Live from #SHRM15 – HR Ladies are Brave!

Kris Dunn and I presented to a packed room at SHRM on Monday on the topic of HR technology and what HR Pros need to be thinking about and doing to bring their own shops into the next decade.  It was great.

Tim Sackett says Live From #SHRM15 – We All Just Want Attention

Monday’s big keynote speaker was the ever popular Marcus Buckingham.  Marcus has the great English accent, high energy and great leadership content to share. He’s strong every time I’ve seen him, going on way too many times at this point in my life! The big bomb he dropped on the SHRMies this session was the money-shot quote of the conference: Millennials don’t want feedback!…

Live from #SHRM15 – Secret Sauce Recipes!

Yeah, I know it’s Sunday and I normally don’t post on a Sunday, but I’m at the annual SHRM National Conference in Las Vegas and it starts today.

Another #SHRM15 Post No One Really Needs.

I was recently called out on one of those “top secret” Facebook groups everybody’s in, the kind populated with the same kind of people who think that promoting “Exclusive VIP Access” to anyone who clicks a link, about why, exactly, SHRM keeps asking me back year after year. Her insinuation was that all I do […]
