Ira inspired our more than 800 attendees. He inspired them to think differently about how to present themselves verbally and in writing, through the entire job hunting process. He underscored the importance of telling your story through your client or prospective employer's eyes. We received many favorable comments about his topic. We were very glad to have Ira as part of the panel of ABA speakers.
