“Bill Schiemann is one of the world’s leading thinkers and writers about challenges facing people in the modern workplace. Moreover Bill is an excellent and engaging speaker, and his recent keynote address to the 2011 Australian Human Resources Convention in Sydney made an excellent impact with the large numbers of delegates who heard him speak. His insights on the war for talent and how best to manage highly skilled executive workforces drew very positive feedback from the delegates attending this year’s event. I would strongly recommend Bill to any Conference organisers looking for an engaging authoritative speaker to address any future business leadership and people management conferences and forums.

"Dr. Schiemann is a superb and skilled speaker who was able to establish immediate rapport with our audience in Hong Kong.  He is provocative, brings fresh ideas to the issue of talent management, enlivens the discussion by using a wealth of examples, and offers extensive research to back up his points.  His session was a conference highlight."

"Dr. William Schiemann provides a unique perspective on measurement. He focuses not merely on big picture, balanced scorecard type measurement, but on specific ways HR can measure the value contribution of an organization's human talent. He is a gifted speaker, who combines both a strategic and pragmatic approach to HR metrics. I highly recommend him."

"Bill spoke to a packed room at our SHRM program in Richmond, Virginia. Bill's presentation was engaging, compelling and highly strategic. All levels of human resources professionals in attendance received tremendous value from his insights. His presentation was a powerful way to kick off our year, and we are already thinking of a way to get him back to Richmond for more."
