I have co-presented with Mr. Younger at several different forums, including an in-person presentation sponsored by TriNet where there was standing room only. Mr. Younger is a highly sought after, globally recognized speaker and is considered a “true” expert in his field. His presentation style is one of the best I’ve ever seen – relevant, engaging, passionate and very, very informative.
I have personally benefited from John’s frequent on-line webinars as well. He presents on many of the most popular hiring topics such as how to recruit top talent, conducting the perfect interview, the increasing demand of RPO, and these are only a few. The webinars are always well-attended and you leave with a “wow” factor and a better understanding.
