Speaker Testimonials

Nan – A lot of people would have just cancelled this event. Instead, you jumped in with both feet and figured out a way to serve your customers. The amount of time and energy it took to move this conference into a virtual world must have been almost overwhelming. And you pulled it off!  Brilliantly!

Thank you for having the courage to try something you’ve never done before.  Thank you for making it so east for all of us to participate.  And thank you for showing all of us that it is never too late to learn how to do new things!

You are an awesome role model!

I have spoken at the Employment Conference on 3 different occasions. I have been consistently impressed with the quality of the event. The content is outstanding, the locations wonderful, the organization & advanced preparation, as well as communication, are nothing short of 5 star! The customer service is wonderful. The team is very knowledgeable and helpful every time!

I have been very pleased and honored to be asked back several times! I look forward to many more years of partnership with Nan and her gang at HireQuality Solutions.

BE the change you wish to SEE in the world,

As a speaker what I loved about this conference is how the attendees who came, packed the house! They were engaged, they participated well, they laughed at all the right points, which is important to me, and they seemed to get a lot out of it so I really felt enthused walking out of my own session!

I wanted to tell you how special I thought the Mental Health conference was. The participants in my group were able to really build connections with one another and be very vulnerable. We had some tears and some real stories shared. It made a big conference feel intimate. Congratulations on being willing to create a platform where people could connect and be real.

This was a wonderful conference/webinar and I learned so much! Thank you Nan for being so resilient and flexible in making it happen! So grateful for opportunity!

I was very impressed with how well the conference was organized and the qualifications of the speakers. While I do many presentations throughout the year, I really felt like I was not in the “same league” as all of your other speakers, when it comes to personnel and human resources issues and topics. You certainly had an impressive list of speakers at this conference.

Since I used to help organize the annual IMMI conference, I know what it takes to prepare for such an event. You certainly have it down to perfection. You make it a very enjoyable experience for both the attendees and the speakers.

I’ve had the pleasure to offer several workshops at the Iowa Employment Conference. In my opinion, it is the marquee conference of the year for HR professionals and managers. Nan has top notch professional presenters and people attending from across the state. A number of attendees have told me this the one conference they do not miss.

Without a doubt, the Iowa Employment Conference is the best value of any seminar I attend. The conference is a wonderful place to meet people dealing with the same problems and learning about innovative solutions. I cannot recommend the conference enough as a one stop shop for all employment needs.
