“Patty did a great job speaking at our HR Star Conference at the L.A. Convention Center. She scored a 91% approval rate, which I consider pretty amazing for a first time speaker at our conference and L.A. is the most critical of all our conference cities. It is very rare a first time speaker gets scores anywhere near 80%, let alone 91%, including speakers I’ve had for years. In my opinion she’s right up there at the top for best presenter and we will definitely have her back at our conferences in both Los Angeles and San Francisco. Congratulations are definitely in order!”
Braden Albert, President, HR Star Conference
