Tomorrow I am leaving to attend the Missouri SHRM State Conference.   I am attending in a dual purpose capacity; I am both speaking and am part of the Social Media Team. I love both of those roles but to get to do both makes me feel blessed. In my personal life I have been very busy in the month of July. July found me in Las Vegas, Phoenix, St. Louis, Ft. Wayne, Memphis, and Chicago and with a little time in Springfield, IL where I call home.

While I have been preparing with my Co-Presenter Donna Rogers for our session, I feel somewhat remiss in not booking up more on the conference. Well, better late than never as we say. So over the weekend I got the #MOSHRM15 app downloaded and got to pursue the offerings.

 

This is a fabulous line up of speakers and topics. I have seen a number of folks speak who are on the agenda. MOSHRM is offering up some the best and the brightest in the #HR space. The folks listed below are all friends of mine and are great speakers. I will vouch for their ability to wow you with their HR prowess.

  • Ryan Estis
  • Donna Rogers
  • Jessica Miller Merrell
  • Craig Fisher
  • Jason Lauritsen
  • Meredith Nethercutt
  • Don MacPherson

Now this is not to say that the other presenters are not equally good, or maybe even better as I have not seen them present. No matter who you pick to see MOSHRM has put together a great line-up.

While at the conference, I am going to challenge myself. I am going to attend one session on a subject that I shy away from or simply am not interested in, why, so I can learn a little more about the matter. I am also going sit with a bunch of people I don’t know, why, so I can meet more new people and grow my network. And lastly, I am going have a ball, smiling, chatting, listening, and learning all the while I am hanging out at a beautiful resort with a bunch of people who are jacked-up to be in Human Resources!

See you Wednesday!
