I hope by now you’ve had the opportunity to listen to the Drive Thru HR show – the only daily radio show devoted to everything HR! The Drive Thru HR guys have been champions of Louisiana SHRM for quite some time; in 2011 they even did their show LIVE from the conference when it was held in Lafayette!
Hosts Bryan Wempen and William Tincup (who will be leading a session at this year’s Louisiana SHRM State Conference) are the show’s hosts and every day at noon (central time) they have conversations with HR professionals – people just like you and me!
I’m pleased to report that I’m once again scheduled to be the DTHR guest on Monday April 2nd – I must do an OK job (or not embarrass myself too much) because they keep inviting me back. In addition to our regular conversational topics surrounding what’s top-of-mind in HR and what it is that’s keeping me up at night, we’re going to do some previewing of the upcoming Louisiana SHRM State Conference (woo hoo!).
Oh sure, we’ll cover the awesomeness that awaits us in our conference city of New Orleans (food, fun, beads, Hurricanes) but more importantly I want us to talk about the focus for this year’s event – our desire to provide awesome and NEW content from speakers who engage with the attendees and provide information that is thought-provoking and relevant to HR practitioners in 2012. Our conference committee’s goal is that all attendees go home with actionable ideas that they can use to drive the business of their organizations and the HR profession forward!
So put April 2nd on your calendar and listen in! You can follow the twitter stream via the hashtag #dthr, or better yet, CALL IN at 347-996-5600. Give us the reasons why YOU’RE attending the conference – in addition to the Hurricanes of course.
Today’s post is by Robin Schooling, SPHR, who is a Vice President of HR in Baton Rouge. She blogs at HR Schoolhouse and you can also find her hanging out at Women of HR and SHRM’s We Know Next blog. Robin serves on the LASHRM State Conference Committee so does have a bit of skin-in-the-game for the success of the conference.
