This yearâ€™s Executive Summit combines mobile technology and social media to help attendees determine the two hospitality HR topics to be discussed by an expert panel of HR leaders, hospitality employment attorneys and academics.
â€śThis year our attendees will set the agenda for this rejuvenated version of the Executive Summit,â€ť said JoAnne Kruse, HR in Hospitality Conference Chair. â€śThrough text messaging and Twitter, conference attendees will vote for the topics most important to them, so they are sure to return from this conference with valuable knowledge and proven strategies to overcome their specific HR challenges.â€ť
