Just this past month, I had the great pleasure of speaking at the 2014 SHRM Talent Management Conference & Exposition in Nashville, Tenn. hosted by the Society for HR Management. I spoke at last year’s conference and it was wonderful to return and be surrounded by so many interested participants again. There was a great turnout at our session, with over 300 people in attendance, and I loved interacting with our engaged audience through Twitter using the hashtag #SHRMtalent. A special shout-out to @JackiKintz and @GAParker01 for the great feedback – and thank you to everyone who attended and participated!
One major highlight of this conference was getting the opportunity to see Marcus Buckingham, best-selling author of “First, Break All the Rules” and founder of TMBC, the world’s most effective strengths-based leadership solutions. It was great to hear him speak on employee engagement and innovative talent management solutions.
