2019 Speaker Submissions

This Global HR conference is designed for HR professionals working in international and global human resources. Texas SHRM has a tradition of using its professional development conference as a platform for education and innovation in the field of global human resource management. Unlike other conferences that only focus on mobility and expatriate management, this conference provides a forum to keep current on all aspects of global HR.  We also look for speakers who have experience dealing with employees who are local nationals in multiple countries and who can share lessons learned with our attendees.

We are seeking presenters who are willing to share their expertise in the spirit of networking versus a sales platform. During the conference history our objective of soliciting HR practitioners has proven a valued benefit.   We look for sessions covering any of the following topics: 

  • Global Compensation
  • Global Benefits
  • Global Strategic Management
  • Organization Development
  • Immigration
  • Global Tax
  • Global Labor Relations
  • Global Talent Management
  • Cultural Impact
  • Expatriate Management
  • Global Mobility
  • Innovative Technology to Impact Global HR

If selected, you will receive a complimentary FULL CONFERENCE REGISTRATION.  This includes access to all sessions including Keynote and Concurrent sessions as well as exhibit area and all meals including the Networking Reception at the close of the conference.
