#Take10 with the #SHRM17 Bloggers in NOLA!


SHRM’s Annual Conference – so many sessions, events, networking activities- honestly, the biggest challenge is finding a few minutes to catch your breath.  Well, for those fortunate enough to join us in New Orleans we have the perfect solution- #Take10 in the Connection Zone!  These interactive sessions- led by the #SHRM17 Bloggers- will inform, inspire, and invigorate attendees.  And, as a bonus we will be livestreaming several of them on Facebook. 

As SHRM’s Director of Social Engagement it’s been my honor to host nearly 40 of the top HR Influencers each year at SHRM’s Annual Conference.  While their online reach certainly make them influential it’s their individual and collective experiences that make them the “must-meet” personalities that they are. Sessions such as “Why we love HR”, “Performance Boosters”, “Finding Meaning at Work”, and the “Introvert’s Guide to Networking” (to name a few) support both personal and professional development.  No slides, just conversations and questions.   And, for a true “no-holds barred” experience we will have two “Ask Me Anything” lunch sessions on Monday and Tuesday afternoon. 

I firmly believe that the #SHRM17 Blog Squad are truly influential not because they write, tweet or post, but rather because they have the combined passion and experience of decades of HR work across so many different industries.  These #Take10 Sessions will take the best of all of that and deliver it directly to you!  So, join us in person per the schedule below, and follow the activities via the #Take10 and #SHRM17 hashtags and look for us on Facebook!   

Each #Take10 Session will be co-led by multiple members of the #SHRM17 Blogger Team, including the Ask Me Anything Lunch sessions, where attendees will join some of the most engaging influencers in HR for candid, funny and informative conversations as they answer questions about all things HR.  Follow the #Take10 #SHRM17 hashtags for updates!
