"HR Law for Managers"
Speaker: Dr. Cubie King, Gold Crown Enterprises

Get ready for one of the most exciting days of training you will ever attend. We are thrilled to announce that Dr. Cubie Davis King, PhD, author and international speaker, is bringing his signature HR Law for Managers class to this year’s BHR Manager's Conference. You will experience firsthand what tens of thousands of people have experienced over the past 19 years.

In the style of famed defense attorney F. Lee Bailey’s mock court, you will get a jury box view of real life human resources cases, from sexual harassment to wrongful termination, from the time a supervisor is sworn into court to real life deliberations, and finally to the verdict of the court. From start to finish, you will hang on to your seat, and leave with a greater understanding of employment laws.

Comments from past attendees of this unique and fulfilling day of training include: "Exciting!" "Incredible!" "Engaging!" and "I didn’t want the day to end!"

As an added bonus this year, all attendees will receive a hard copy of Dr. King’s hot new book, The S7VEN People Principles: Success When Dealing With Other People, which is currently being used by such companies as Holiday Inns, Inc., AAA, Super Glue Corp., Goodwill Industries, Yellow Cab Co., and colleges and universities around the country.

"Pants On Fire."
Speaker: V.J. Smith

The difference between right and wrong is simple – most kids can figure it out – it’s the application that is difficult.
V.J. Smith will begin the morning with this fun but hard hitting talk “Pants On Fire.” Drawing on current events, personal stories and appropriate anecdotes, the speaker takes a practical approach to personal and business ethics. Again, the problem isn’t identifying unethical behavior; rather, it’s having the courage to take active steps to stop the behavior and dealing with the consequences.

"The Exceptional Employee"

Speaker: V.J. Smith

V.J. Smith will wrap up the morning with his entertaining and insightful presentation “The Exceptional Employee.” V.J. spent 25 years of his life as a supervisor in various businesses and organizations. During that time, it was his observation that most employees believe they perform at an above average level when it comes to their job responsibilities. In this discerning talk, V.J. will share ten traits that separate the exceptional employee from the average employee. Every person in the audience will relate to the various categories and judge where they are on the “Exceptional Scale.” For some, it will be a real eye-opener!
