& Charee Klimek

Welcome to a special Leadership Channel Podcast on TotalPicture Radio featuring Charee Klimek and Trish McFarlane. This is the first in a series on podcasts Charee will be recording for TotalPicture Radio, as we explore exciting new avenues to amplify the voices of Women in Leadership Today.

According to Charee, "Trish is one of the most positively engaging, influential leaders in the HR 2.0 space. Through her blog, The HR Ringleader, she engages her audience in conversations about issues that effect leaders, managers, and employees. With laser like focus, she ensures consistent content for her readers posting anywhere between 5-7 times a week. It has served her well."

Today she is a center of influence within the HR space continuing to utilize her passion for blogging as a way to connect and engage people in conversations about leadership, management and employee issues. She helps to evolve human resources because she leads by example and that level of integrity has catapulted her career."

"If you think that’s all Trish does though, think again. At her day job, also a passion, she serves as an HR Business Partner for St. Louis Children’s Hospital. Trish contributes multi-dimensional expertise to bring innovation and thought leadership to the hospital in order to recruit, engage and retain individuals that truly make a difference in the lives of children and their families."

"She is also the Co-Founder of Women of HR, Co-Founder and Lead Producer of the HR Evolution and a highly sought after speaker. Did I mention she’s married and the mother of two active, 6 year-old twin boys!"

So how does Trish do it all and stay sane? Charee sat down with her during the HR Tech Conference to find out... Happy birthday, Trish!
