Step back in time or out on the town. While you’re staying at the Grand Hyatt, located right on the historic San Antonio Riverwalk, you can visit the Missions while being serenaded by a wondering mariachi band, stroll through El Mercado while slurping a snow cone, or simply relax with a drink in one of San Antonio’s trendy bars or Zagat-rated restaurants. Make sure to call and reserve your room before it’s too late.
Building relationships is about a lot more than liking someone’s post on LinkedIn. While you’re attending World Conference 2015, you can build real, face-to-face associations with like-minded HR Pros and executives.

I think all of that is Awesome! Why? When your organization has low expectations of what you will and can do, it gives you unlimited room to create, test and build industry leading stuff! Who cares that it failed, you were supposed to fail! Our reality is that in HR we have the ability to deliver today, unlike any other time in our organizations history.
