Speaker Topic
Judee Hopwood will present a funny and insightful look at the pitfalls and possible remedies that arise when employment situations become “sticky.”  As President of a staffing firm, she has seen it all.  Employment principles are constantly evolving and are often at odds with what you feel is right or fair.  How do you make the right decision for both yourself and your company?  How can you apply the lessons learned when dealing with difficult employment situations to issues that arise with clients and customers?  Perspectives from both the employer and employee will be explored with plenty of time for questions and discussion.
