Carl Nielson Speaks at HR Gulf Coast Symposium

Carl Nielson, managing principal of The Nielson Group and Chief Discovery Officer of Success Discoveries spoke at the 19th Annual Gulf Coast Symposium on Human Resources Issues. His presentation was a repeat of the previous year where the session was considered one of the top sessions of the conference. The theme of the conference,

held May 12th and 13st in Houston at Reliant Conference Center, was “HR Lifeline - Vital Education for Today’s Professional”. His session, “Playtime: Games to Engage Talent and Teams” was held twice.

My goal was to give HR professionals the motivation, confidence and tools to use more creative methods to engage their internal client base. Whether at the leadership, manager or employee level, interactive lectures are now mandatory if you want to make an impact and see knowledge is retained. The games I shared were just a beginning to what is possible for HR professionals.” stated Carl Nielson.
