Assessing Your HR Dept

Tuesday, October 24th, 2006

Claudia Jarrett, Snow College This was in the same room as the previous session, so I left my stuff in the room. By the time I got back from the bathroom, it had already strated. So, I snuck back in and sat with my stuff which was down from. Unfortunatly, the room was really empty […]

Rick Ellis -Washington State Much better! “Our job is to support mountain climbers”, he begins, a huge slide of Mt. Rainier behind him. Mt climbers? Yes, in a way I can see his metaphor.

Keynote just started.

Monday, October 23rd, 2006

Keynote just started. The presenter, Todd Markelz looks like a 15-year-old stuffed into a suit – though I doubt that I would look good up there right now.
