2018 Maine HR Convention

"Maryanne's session was the top-rated strategic session was on Thursday, with Maryanne Spatola, the visiting NYU professor, with her look at the future of HR."

Board of Directors

""Maryanne showed us what strategic HR is, and how a strategic, business-integrated HR function can be used to transform your organization."

GSC-SHRM Annual Conference

"Usually I go to a conference and hear a great speech once and feel I have a few great points to take home, I even study the slides and recreate the event for further study. Maryanne was selected to speak several times and each time, it's not only a totally fresh perspective, but she creates it in "carrryable" language, graphics and videos to bring home the message. Her expressiveness on panels delves into the multi-dimensional aspects of her career wonderfully. She is a true compliment to the field, but then again, I guess that's why SHRM picks her to speak, again and again !"
