Our Personnel Parodies and Musical Keynote Clients Say…
HR Association of Palm Beach County
Arlene Vernon was the lunch keynote speaker for our chapter’s Annual Conference in West Palm Beach, FL. Arlene flawlessly delivered her presentation on Personnel Parodies: A Day in the Life of an HR Pro.
Her presentation was entertaining and insightful. Arlene incorporated stories and original songs to provide practical approaches HR professionals can use in conflict management and resolution through song.
She has an amazing voice, which enables her to turn a doldrums presentation into a lively and at time comedic view of the day in the life of an HR professional. Attendees were able to take away tools that they could apply immediately in their professional lives.
Arlene applied her philosophy of rediscovering humor in what we do in HR and simultaneously using our expertise to be a valued strategic partner in our organizations. The presentation was wonderful and unexpected, which attendees will remember long after the conference was over. I highly recommend Arlene if you want someone that is going to deliver a well thought out, entertaining and interactive presentation.
