"Allison’s presentation on Creating Bulletproof Documentation communicated knowledge that every HR professional and Manager must have! She was informative, engaging, humorous and provided great case study examples. I learned so much that I decided to attend another session where Allison presented on California Employment Law. These were two of the best sessions I attended at the 2012 SHRM Annual Conference. We have already begun to make changes in our organization based on the best practices that Allison shared!"
