"We were thrilled to have invited Ruth Schwartz to present, "Its not you. Its the Hiring System that's Flawed", as a breakout session at our recent COSE Annual Small Business Conference. The attendees of that session were engrossed by both the unique material that challenged their thinking and by Ruth's compelling and inclusive presentation style. They walked away with actionable steps and many are putting the material to use, right away. Ruth's session allowed for lots of participation and plenty of Q&A. We'd love to bring her back to present again. " - Adina Magda, Event and Program Coordinator,COSE 2014 Small Business Conference
