Cynthia Y. Thompson is scheduled to deliver a speech entitled “How to Provide Great Programming” from 2:00pm – 3:15pm at the 2013 MSSHRM Leaders’ Retreat.

I had the pleasure of meeting Cynthia in Biloxi, MS at the 2012 Mississippi SHRM Human Resources Conference & Expo.  I’ve also enjoyed the monthly editions of HR Professionals Magazine since that time and look forward to seeing her again at this event.
