“Attendance at the SHRM HR Executive Delegation Program allowed me an opportunity to sharpen my skills in human-resource subject areas that I currently engage in through my work, while broadening my perspective and helping me to gain valuable insight into innovation affecting both large and small organizations. I have also acquired knowledge of strategy, learning & development, and diversity through my discussions with a variety of senior leaders at LinkedIn, SAP, and Degreed. The SHRM HR Executive Delegation Program provided me with invaluable knowledge to bring back to my organization. I appreciate the relationships I have been able to build with my fellow human-resource professionals, as well as the tips, facts, and new ideas acquired from the program.”
Patricia Wortham, Director of Human Resources“The SHRM HR Executive Delegation to Silicon Valley was a really great learning opportunity. There are so many assumptions and perceptions that changed drastically after this visit. What I heard and learnt from each company, and my fellow attendees, is definitely food-for-thought and I will definitely explore integrating some of these into my organization.”

“The SHRM-sponsored trip to Cuba was a fantastic experience; it not only focused on fostering understanding business relations between the U.S. and Cuba, but also offered rich exposure to the Cuban culture.
It was a very meaningful travel experience where a group of HR professionals who began as strangers in a foreign land, built a strong network, formed friendships and left with deep knowledge of how HR practices are carried out in Cuba. Most importantly, memorable experiences were created.”
Zaira Goodman, CHRO, Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority
“The executive HR Delegation trip sponsored by SHRM and provided by To Cuba Now is a fabulous professional, cultural, educational, business, diplomatic and culinary experience. Their team ensured our group’s five-day trip was fun-filled yet jam packed with a comprehensive overview of economic, social, cultural, educational and political realities and opportunities. All the arrangements, venues and transportation were perfect – 5 stars!”
Ken Scarlett, President & CEO, Scarlett Employee Surveys International
