Hillary Rodham Clinton shared the wisdom she’s gained over a lifetime of leadership at the Society for Human Resource Management’s annual conference in Chicago recently.
The conference, which ran from June 16-19, also featured a highly inspirational talk from astronaut Mark Kelly and his wife Gabrielle Giffords, who survived an assassination attempt on her life two years ago, about how to make a difference in the world while overcoming adversity.
Best-selling author Daniel Pink also addressed the crowd about embracing their true roles as salespeople of opportunities while TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie talked about how giving and actively making the world a better place is an excellent business model to adopt.
The conference included over 250 other speakers and was attended by over 15,000 human resources professionals, making it the biggest HR event in the country.
