Hopefully, it will finally warm up for Spring!!


April is a busy month with two conferences for HR Professionals. Successfully Speaking will have an exhibit table at the CHRA Spring Conference on April 4th at the Hunt Valley Inn and again at the Maryland Healthcare Human Resources Association (MHHRA) at the Maritime Museum on April 17th. Stop by and learn how Successfully Speaking can help you or your employees enhance communication skills. We will be raffling off a gift certificate to Ruth Chris' Steakhouse.

Many don't know where to start. Check out this article from the Harvard Business Review on The Big Challenge of American Small Talk.

Are You Kidding Me? 
In honor of April Fool's Day, I'd like to share this video. Can this woman be serious? Listen to her concern about Deer Crossing signs......another example of misunderstanding or total lack of  common sense.
