Informative and entertaining…

"I oversee HR, accounting and IT. I attended a BLR seminar on terminations in San Diego which attracted me to CELU. I can tell you it's been the best experience, the most comprehensive, most entertaining. HR is not easy but the presenters here are awesome. They really make it informative and entertaining and I will definitely be back next year. BLR puts on the best seminars. If you're not planning on coming, you better be sure to put this into your budget."
