I’m an advocate for the workplace revolution and I firmly believe we make organizations better when we make HR better.
My main gig/day job/what gets me out of bed each morning is with Cielo as Vice President, Consulting where we work with clients and partners across the landscape of HR Technology, Employer Branding and Marketing, and DE&I. What’s it all about? My take is it’s about the creation (and co-creation) of innovative, practical and sustainable solutions that create transformative experiences for HR teams and employees.
In addition to writing in this little corner of the world, I’ve also written for Recruiting Daily, Fast Company, HR Examiner, Certified Magazine, SHRM and other sites. I speak at HR and business events across the globe, conduct webinars, and provide content for various vendors in the HR space. In 2010 I began writing at the HR Schoolhouse (then subsequently lost some content from 2012 – 2015) and there are still quite a few posts housed at the Schoolhouse.
I’m a co-host of DrivethruHR – one of the longest running HR podcasts (1,600+ episodes!) and have been an Advisory Board Member for HR|Onboard (Melbourne, AUS) and served on advisory boards for BlackbookHR, Smartbrief on Workforce, Geaux Veterans, and the Louisiana Business Leadership Network.
I adore my dogs (Frank Lapidus, Mr. Crumples and Eddy von Schooling), am a fervent fan of the New Orleans Saints (#WhoDat), and am on a never-ending quest to find the perfect French 75.
