Simple, real, fresh

I have had the privilege of seeing Laurie speak and have read her blogs over the years. She is a genuine, thought provoking recovering hr pro. She has an insight and a way of looking at the world that makes this podcast perfect listening for those of us that like to question our work. Her quality of guests are also impressive as they are respected and well known professionals that don't just blow smoke. This is an glimpse into the inner workings of Laurie's mind and that of her guests! It's fascinating!
