Growing my career from the mid-1970’s to now, I have seen much in the way of technology.  And being so close to it from both an interest and career perspective, I continue to see how the technology is an enabler of better and better ways of life.  And in HR, the ability to leverage this technology to blend work and life into a single “fabric of life” is fascinating to me as I work with the many vendors I encounter.

I speak often at conferences or in webinars, arrange and moderate panels of experts, and assist in writing articles (or at least provide content in the forms of quotes or perspectives) for the HR arena and media.  I consider myself a visionary in things technological and the potential of positive impact to our world.

I am happy to speak to your team, your organization, your association, your user group, or to you personally regarding my perspectives.  I find I learn from my conversations with others, incorporate those in subsequent presentations, and leverage the new perspectives to help me shape what I believe the future may look like.
