“I really enjoyed Hunter’s session and his “delivery” was a cross between George Carlin and Robin Williams – keeping the content solid but not getting bogged down with Stats, Rules and other HR considerations. A very dynamic presentation.”
"I really liked how he didn't just outline the problem -- he gave us ideas of what to do"
"We have a lot of this information but it isn't practical -- and entertaining -- like this"
"I like his common sense style of thinking through HR"
