A great group of members attended this learning and networking conference last month. Members shared stories and tips on how to best run their recruiting practices while networking with new and old members. We are always impressed by the practice group breakout sessions. Members attend these networking meeting run by a group leader where niches are the focus. They share actionable items that can help recruiters find best practices and gain a better understanding of the niche they are serving.
Every conference this network brings in the best speakers that add value to firm owners and their teams. Keynote speakers are invited to speak to the whole group and some lead break out sessions. This year’s list of speakers included Dr. Joe Johnson, Mike “Batman” Cohen, Ryan Kovach and Laura Stoker. All brought their “A” game with members walking away with more understanding and knowledge in the workplace of today.
Awards were given to members that achieve top billings for the year and over the years. So many of these members win these each year. They are humble and share ideas with each other as well as become lifelong friends. Awards were also given to last year’s and this year’s Chairman Awards recipients’ Jeff McGraw, Reflex Staffing Solutions, 2021 Chairman’s Award, and Laura Schmieder, Premier Placement, Inc., 2022 Chairman’s Award. This year’s presentation was simply the Best EVER! As both recipients were asked questions by a moderator that lead to some interesting answers. Thanks to all that put this together. It was a genuine delight!
After a two-year pandemic hiatus, this face to face event felt even more rewarding, fun and full of energy. It was nice to be downtown Fort Worth with an Art Festival and music happening in a short walking distance of the hotel. It was definitely worth the travel!
