President's Letter
Share |


Welcome to another year of exciting programs with HR Strategy Forum.  Our aim is to provide a forum for strategic HR leaders in Northern California to learn about the latest research, trends and challenges in the industry and to help them engage in thought-provoking discussions with their professional peers.

Our programs this year focus on Organizational Agility in the Digital Age. We will learn about the latest trends in digital transformation, study up-to-date best practices in performance feedback, discover new models and frameworks for optimizing organizational design, explore new approaches to leadership development, and hear about innovative ways to foster learning through career mobility. 

More than twelve years ago, I was invited by HRSF to present Intuit’s best practices in employee engagement. I found HRSF to be a progressive forum where I could engage with other HR leaders on the current challenges of organizations, the workforce and the HR profession so I joined as a member.  Over the years, I have been most impressed at the quality of programs and the strategic level of conversation. I joined the board in 2010 and have been actively involved in shaping the direction of HRSF since then. 

HRSF was originally formed in southern CA and has been operating for nearly 25 years. While our northern CA branch grew, membership in southern CA has lessened. Last year the board made a tough decision to conclude programs down south and focus all resources in northern CA.

As I take on the role of President for the 2018 – 2019 season, and we head towards our quarter century mark, I am excited to continue bringing the latest thinking and best practices in HR to our membership. I am grateful for the opportunity to work and connect with such talented and dedicated people. I am excited to announce two great additions to the board:  Ceil Tilney, Vice-President, Talent Management Principal, Right Management, serving as Program Committee Chair; and Tris Brown, Chairman & CEO, LSA Global, serving as HRSF Membership and Outreach Chair. 

I look forward to seeing you at our upcoming programs, and on our website and social media sites! 

All the best,


Craig Ramsay
President, HR Strategy Forum
