It’s conference week – that magical time of year when HR professionals from across the great state of Louisiana descend, en masse, upon one venue to learn, network and share ideas and information.
With hundreds and hundreds of HR professionals, hundreds of vendors and sponsors, and 28 speakers coming from all across the world (literally – the world!), the 2012 conference promises to live up to the hype.
We’re thrilled to have Dwane Lay, MBA, SSBB, SPHR, newly appointed head of HR Process Design with Dovetail Software, on deck as this year’s Master of Ceremonies. Dwane is recognized as a leading authority on the application of Lean tools and techniques in Human Resources, and has a wealth of experience in applying business technology to improve HR processes. Lay is the author of LeanHRBlog and is a well-known presence on the HR social media landscape. In his role as Master of Ceremonies, Dwane will help keep the conference on track during the General Session (herding cats? Anyone? Bueller?). But his role won’t stop there for he’s also leading a session on Friday called “Lean HR: Systematic Improvements in your Process.”
