    “HR Is a Marathon” – Matt Jones, Founder, Matt Jones International

     Matt Jones, went from being a three-time cancer conqueror, to relearning how to walk, to surviving a bone marrow transplant, to completing eight marathons on eight continents and yes that includes Antarctica! Matt was diagnosed with cancer on September 11, 2002. After the cancer spread to the fluid in his brain doctors did not think he would live. Hall of Fame baseball player and World Series Champion, George Brett said, “Matt is a true champion and his story inspires others to be a true champion.” Olympic gold medalist Scott Hamilton said, “Matt Jones has done what anyone would consider impossible. Conqueror. Overcomer. Champion. Superhuman.” Matt uses his story of overcoming insurmountable odds to inspire those in human resources to achieve greater victory during these times of change and uncertainty

    “Economic Recovery after COVID-19”- ProjectRebound Steering Committee, Charlottesville Chamber of Commerce

    The Project Rebound Blueprint report, released on June 25, 2020, pulls together initial input from more than 300 local participants. It maps out action steps toward economic recovery in our area, and it's meant as a starting point for conversation and collaboration. The need to rebuild consumer, business and workforce confidence was an important theme of local conversations. Participants identified health & safety concerns, an uncertain business environment, and confusion over guidelines as some of the confidence barriers to economic recovery. To build a truly inclusive recovery, this conversation needs to expand beyond the initial group of participants from the business community. The panelists will share with the HR community the work that is being done in and around Charlottesville to recover from the economic effects of COVID-19.
