As someone who has attended almost all of the state conferences here in Illinois, I can confidently recommend this years event as top notch! And that is not because I am the ISC-SHRM director. It is because I have personally witnessed the outstanding thought leadership of many of our concurrent and keynote speakers over the years. In addition, since I am active on social media, I have the opportunity to see what genius these folks put out all through the year by way of speaking engagements, blog posts, ebooks, and published works. For example, Talent Anarchy who is back this year by popular demand just published a book called Social Gravity that I am personally dying to read. Since the SHRM bookstore will be set up, I along with have my chance to pick up my copy.
My absolute favorite part of this conference is the networking. I love to see and chat it up with all our fabulous HR pros in the state as well as personally meet our speakers. I hope you will consider joining me and the rest of #ILSHRM gang at this years conference and exposition. By the way did I mention we have 50 vendors who will be sharing their wares and handing out lots of sought after swag? Don't miss it! Go to our site today and register! Www.ilshrm.org.
