Here are a few comments about my performances from people much smarter than myself.
“Damon brings an amazingly fresh approach to HR – exactly what HR needs! He’s very driven, enthusiastic, and determined to make a real difference in his work and makes great use of his blog and other social media to connect and drive his message forwards. He really stands out in his field and I’d watch him closely!”
Mark Moore, Director, Excelerated Performance International
“Damon is an important thought-leader in a global Human Resources community that coalesces around social media. As a reader of his blog, Damon challenges me me to think differently about the future of Human Resources. Damon demonstrates strong strategic thinking skills and he uses social media to motivate other HR professionals around the world to provide relevant, meaningful Human Resources services. When he writes about topics such as recruitment/branding/HR delivery, Damon provides practical ideas and offers concrete examples on how to increase the effectiveness of HR in the 21st century.
I also had the pleasure of speaking with Damon at a Human Resources conference in London. Surrounded by HR professionals—some of whom had over 30 years of experience in this industry—Damon held his own and was recognised as a future leader within our profession.
Damon is an amazing HR professional with a great future ahead of him. I highly recommend his work.”
Laurie Ruettimann, Columnist, The Conference Board
