Preliminary Breakout Session Topics:
Building Financial Intelligence for Today’s HR Leader
Everything you always wanted to know about finance but were afraid to ask! In order for today’s HR professionals to be strategic partners and school leaders, they must demonstrate business acumen and understanding of how the people centered work of human resources impacts the school’s finances. In this engaging, practical and participative session, Paul Butler will demystify concepts like working capital, financial statements, and commonly heard but often misunderstood terms such as; depreciation, goodwill, amortization, accruals, unearned revenue and EBITDA. Paul is an engaging presenter who uses stories and humor to draw in the audience. You’ll never look at a balance sheet in quite the same way again.

Getting Workplace Investigations Right
Each of the sessions above is eligible for SHRM continuing education credit.

We are committed to providing professional development and connection just as you are committed to delivering your curriculum and connection to your school community.
