Reprise — #HRTechConf And #HRTechEurope 2013 Attendee Tips

This comes to you from the Hilton at Heathrow Airport. We’ve had a wonderful sojourn in England — such a civilized country, especially when you’re far away from any large cities — but it’s time to get back to work. And since I know I won’t have wifi on the flight across the pond tomorrow, [...]

My First Word On #HRTechConf 2013 — And Your Best Discount

Bill And Me And HRTechConf Makes Three!

I’m writing this as Ron and I are in New England visiting my family and both childhood and university friends. One of our visits is to North Haven Island, off the coast of Maine and only accessible by Ferry (assuming the seas aren’t running too high). I’m [...]

Reprise — An Open Letter To HR Executives

There But For The Grace Of G-d Go Us!

[The original version of this post was published here in January, 2012, but a call I did last night with a magazine editor reminded me that we must emphasize just how important it is to start any HR technology project with a well-grounded strategy. [...]

“I’ve Looked At Clouds From Both Sides Now”

 

I’ve Looked At Clouds From Both Sides Now

Coming of age in the 60′s, I was so blessed to be there when some of the greatest folk music ever was written and performed, often by the same person. It was the Golden Age of singer/songwriters, and Joni Mitchell was one of the best. [...]

I’m Keynoting European HR Tech Conf In Amsterdam

Last year I keynoted my first conference outside of the US, a major HR technology conference held in Athens. I had hesitated to accept such speaking engagements in the past out of a concern that my style of speaking, my humor (or what I think is humorous), and my Yiddishisms wouldn’t translate well for an [...]

15th Annual HR Technology Conference 2012 Attendee Tips

Having almost finished preparations for a long trip to England in September, soon I’ll be putting the finishing touches on my schedule for the 15th annual HR Technology Conference and making final preparations for the two sessions I’ll be doing there. From the time we arrive in Chicago late Saturday afternoon (yes, The Wallace [...]

My First Word On #HRTechConf 2012 — And Your Best Discount Offer

Me And Mr. Bill!

I’m writing this as Fort Myers is experiencing a relatively mild summer (compared to the rest of the country’s astonishing heat, forest fires, and deluge of political ads) while getting enough rain to float all our boats. Lake Devonwood is almost up to our pool cage, and it’s only [...]

#WorkdayRising 2011 — Mostly Non-Software Observations

Aneel Bhusri and Dave Duffield, Workday Founders/Co-CEOs

Full disclosure: Workday is a client, and I was a compensated speaker at Workday Rising 2011.

After several days in Vegas at Workday Rising, attending lots of sessions (including one I did with Leighanne Levensaler, VP for HCM product strategy, in which she did the play by [...]

Impressions From HR Technology Conference 2011

Ooooogah! Oooooogah!

Updated 10/11/2011 — join the discussion about getting to great HRM software over at LinkedIn’s HR Technology Group http://www.linkedin.com/groupItem?view=&gid=1772602&type=member&item=74705112&qid=589809af-35c8-492b-b988-49f4c32dd041&trk=group_most_recent_rich-0-b-ttl&goback=%2Egmr_1772602

I’m exhausted but energized, if it’s actually possible to be in both states at once. I’ll leave it to others to do both the play by play and color commentary, neither of which [...]

Naomi’s Annual “Appearance” On Mr. Bill’s Radio Show

Oh No Mr. Bill!

On Wednesday (8-31-2011) at noon EDT, I’ll be doing my fourth annual guest “appearance” on Bill Kutik’s Radio Show, which is very generously sponsored by Knowledge Infusion. I always look forward to doing these shows because Bill’s a great interviewer, the long tail of replays is enormous, and getting ready [...]
