Speaker Testimonials

With so many things like the Missouri Employment Conference it’s the people that you meet and the opportunities they represent that make it well worth your time.

I spoke at the Missouri Employment Conference last year and so happy that I did. I met a lot of smart people, made some new business contacts, and even got a new client out of it! I’m looking forward to going to the conference in the future.

You ladies did a great job facilitating this conference. As a speaker, giving a zoom presentation is a real challenge; we miss out on the direct interaction with the audience. When I present, I always want to engage the audience and make sure I am delivering content that they feel is relevant. Plus, I like to keep it lively and humorous when possible. Considering the Covid-19 situation, your zoom style conference was absolutely the best possible solution. A real testament to your team! (I did get some positive feedback that my session was perfectly audible and had no streaming issues – Great job Lisa coaching me and being there to assist – I could have not had a better person to get me organized and prepared!!)

I would be eager to do more of these. (I have plenty of topics) I feel the face to face is still the best, but the Zoom style to fill in or supplement throughout the year, could possibly also be good. (may grow your participants also)

Thanks again – let me know if I can help you in any way- anytime.

I would definitely recommend the Missouri Employment Conference because of the education information and content they provide is just invaluable! I’m already looking forward to coming next year!

As a sponsor and speaker at MEC I have had the unique opportunity to be in front of several hundred prospects at once. On top of that, the staff takes time to connect people, introduce you to prospects and really provide a value add!!

I thoroughly enjoyed attending and speaking at the Missouri Employment Conference in 2019. The conference covered a wide range of current and emerging Employment, Human Resources, Benefits and Diversity issues and best practices. The conference also provide excellent networking opportunities with highly-talented practitioners from across the state.  I look forward to attending the next conference.

The audience was wonderful; I received a high level of interaction through the chat feature as well as a lot of really great questions, and follow-up afterward. As a practitioner, I truly enjoy the analytical side of HR and getting to share that information with my fellow HR professionals. Thank you for still holding the conference and continuing to raise the bar for HR professionals throughout our communities.
