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 !"
