As the Co-Chair of Metro-Milwaukee Society for Human Resources Management, We invited Jeff to do a presentation on “No Nonsense Retention”. Jeff was excellent at engaging the Talent Acquisition professionals in the audience. I also admire Jeff for his diverse teaching style, depending on the audience. His style is energetic, enthusiastic and passionate. His knowledge brings him credibility, and gave our group some great strategies that we could take back to our workplace and implement immediately.
