Speaker Hall of Fame Inductees

Speaker Hall of Fame Inductees

The HRSouthwest Conference Speaker Hall of Fame was established in 2013 to honor our speakers who exhibit speaking excellence and professionalism, and who continually contribute to the conference to further the profession of human resources. Inductees are evaluated by their peers and each candidate must excel in content, delivery, professionalism and communication.  We congratulate all of our inductees.
