  How to Become a Destination Company for “A” Players

Hunter Lott, Founder of HR<50

“Hunter is the rare combination of subject matter expert plus top-level speaker plus entertainer. He knows his subject well – down to case law – and makes it easy, palatable, and fun. The message is solid, upbeat, fair, and humane for employers, good workers and those with potential, but uncompromising to whiners and malingerers.”

— Rick Martin, Vistage Chair

“There are two kinds of people in this world. There are those who walk in to a room and say, “Here I am!” And there are those who walk into a room and say, “There you are!” … Tyler will teach you how to become the kind of leader who notices and enhances the lives of those around you and you’ll watch as new levels of usefulness in your own life are unlocked in the process.”
