"Dr. Paul White’s keynote presentation on the 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace, for our SHRM-Atlanta annual HR conference, was right on target. His presentation was engaging, current and relevant.  He combined solid research with actual work-life experiences to show how authentic appreciation positively affects the success and bottom line of an organization.  This was extremely relevant to our SHRM members – helping us to enhance our leadership skills in our member organizations."
