I just wrapped my 7th SHRM Annual Conference, and my first as a member of the SHRM Blog Squad. This conference has stretched me more than any development event I have ever been to. And it wasn't the sessions, it wasn't the Smart Stage talks or the General Sessions that really made the most impact. Those were all great, don't get me wrong. But the most impactful thing for me was the connections that I made with my fellow attendees.
