macleish kiltFinal preparations are under way for our biggest event of the year — the HR Law & Solutions seminar, which will be held this year on April 1 at the Sanibel Harbour Resort. This year, we are excited to welcome back Paul Macleish as our keynote speaker. Paul will be a familiar face for those of you who attended HR Law & Solutions in 2011 — remember the guy dressed in a kilt, carrying bagpipes (no, not David Roos — that was a different costume!)?  That’s Paul!

This year, Paul will present “The ‘Braveheart’ Approach to Leadership.” Using the factual history from the story of William Wallace and the Independence of Scotland, immortalized in the movie Braveheart, Paul will take examples from actual events and tie them in to leadership in the modern corporate world. Paul’s recent blog post, Braveheart Leadership, will give you a glimpse of his presentation.

Paul is originally from the Scottish Border and began his career in the United Kingdom working for Stakis Casinos and Hotels in London. He then moved to the U.S. in 1989 and began working for the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. Paul was a leadership consultant at the Disney University and later became a business program facilitator and designer at the Disney Institute. He received the “Partners in Excellence Award” for exceeding excellence in leadership, people management and service. After 6 years with the Disney Institute facilitating customer service, human resources and leadership programs, Paul left Disney and began incorporating the Disney methods and strategies into helping organizations worldwide.
