    EVENT DETAILS:

    We’ve all heard the saying, if there is one thing that remains consistent- it is CHANGE! Dealing with change within HR is ever prevalent as many organizations look to make the switch from tactical HR to strategic operations. Change is something we all want. We turn to selfhelp and motivational books, seek advice from friends, family and coworkers, all in an effort to try to achieve the change we want. Yet many of us still fall short of achieving what we want.

    Melissa Borowicz and Russ Salzer address this very question in their presentation, “Change the Way You Look at Change.” This interactive session helps individuals get clear on the active role they play in creating the change they want within their business or personal life. Participants will examine how they potentially get in the way of change and how to overcome these obstacles to get the results they want.

    Remember, there’s no better time than NOW to make the changes you want. Participants will gain helpful insight into small changes we can all make to be more effective in implementing change in our professional sphere of influence.


    Melissa Borowicz is a principal with the Utech Group and illumyx. With over a decade of experience working with organizations across the US and Canada, Melissa is an expert in defining corporate culture and helping organizations maximize and align their teams and people.

    Russell Salzer, owner of 3YG, is an accomplished business leader with over 25 years of expertise in building marketing, sales and operational teams, revitalizing infrastructure, developing and executing strategic plans, and driving businesses to greater levels of profitability by developing effective teams by dramatically improving individual personal development and the interpersonal relationships that people share with each other.
