The Tim Sackett Project

Last week the 3rd annual Michigan Recruiter’s Conference took place in Grand Rapids, MI onsite at our corporate host Amway World Headquarters. It was a great example of what we should all strive for as TA Leaders. I hate when people go to a conference and either sit alone or sit with the only people they know, so my idea was to get them to meet 4-5 new people and make some connections. But 150 people trying to find smaller groups of three in a room was comical and loud!
