Speaker Alan Hoffler
It was a pleasure meeting many of you at the 2020 HR Florida Conference & Expo as I spoke both in-person and virtually! In my two sessions, we looked at strategies to effectively use different communication channels in your own organization to impress any audience, to save you time, boost your bottom line, and set your organization back on the path of efficiently reaching your goals.
