Speaking Engagements History
   
 

Thomas Stone speakingThis page provides a chronology of my professional speaking engagements from 2008 to the present. Many of these were on behalf of my current employer Taleo, or my previous employer Element K, at conferences, society and trade-group meetings, as well as online presentations such as webinars and virtual conferences. Not included on this page are the several additional, private presentations given directly for customers or as a guest lecture for HR masters program classes.

For a video sample, and several SlideShare presentations (some with audio), see my Presentations page.
