We provide talent management workshop and education services to HR and business leaders.

Our Founder Nicole Dessain has experience presenting to international audiences up to 500 people, both live and virtually. Some of her recent public speaking engagements include presentations for NISHRM, #HRUChicago – People Analytics Unconference, SHRM Chicago, Staffing Management Association of Seattle, ISPI, TLNT, and ERE.

“Nicole was our opening keynote for a group of talent acquisition professionals at the 2015 Staffing Management Association of Seattle Symposium, and she was a great way to start our day! Nicole talked about the various relationships that recruiters need to consider daily in their jobs. Nicole was well received by our audience, receiving high marks for the delivery of her message. Attendees felt that they were able to take away ideas that would be useful to them in their roles, meeting a goal that we ask our speakers to strive for!” (Meredith Turner, SMA Seattle Board)
