Florida conference helps grow networking, businesses for HR professionals

The HR FLORIDA Conference has been part of Tom and I’s life for 40 years. Like most, we started as attendees. The early years were informal and relaxed. The speakers were local HR execs and we all had time to mix, mingle and get to know one another. We were encouraged to exhibit our Right Management services, which we did.  Eventually we became speakers and even gave two of the keynote presentations.

We have watched friendships develop between the participants, decisions to do joint projects made and even full-time businesses formed out of HR Florida.  Certainly, many have found new HR roles because of this conference. Over the years the conference has matured into a major force in the Florida HR Community that cannot be overlooked.

We have all come to know the building rhythm of the event. The preconference day typically starts with a run/walk which gets you moving and ready for the next three days. Our kickoff morning on Monday begins with an inspirational speaker that always leaves us moved and motivated. Every year we partner with a charity that is important to the state and time is devoted to learning their needs and giving us the chance to raise money with our fantastic auction. This year’s charity is The American Society for Suicide prevention. It leaves us with a feeling of giving back and making the world a better place.

We have two-and-a-half full days of learning sessions in multiple areas, so HR Florida provides knowledge and information on all HR issues and challenges. The state conference offers the unique opportunity to fulfill many of an HR Practitioners SHRM PDC and HRCI re-certification credit all in one place. We end the conference with a fantastic party with terrific entertainment.

What we truly value is the opportunity to network with our clients, our friends and each other.  The dedication of the committee to make this conference better year after year is unbelievable. We are delighted that both as HR professionals and as a vendor of services we are proud to say this is our 40th year in attendance. Our organization has grown from a personnel association to a strategic human resource organization. 

Over the last 10 years Right Management has been privileged to be HR Florida’s Diamond Plus Sponsor. We look forward to supporting this amazing organization.

What makes HR Florida unique is that we are large enough to fill many needs of our HR professionals today with great sessions and terrific vendors, but we are small enough that we have time to also connect with one another, build new friendships and make our network stronger every year.

We learn, yet we have great fun.
