Kim Shepherd Was The featured Speaker & Mentor at the Beautiful Life Members Only MasterMind Speaker Series

Kim Shepherd, CEO

Kim Shepherd was the featured Speaker & Mentor at the Beautiful Life Members Only Roundtable event held at HMWC CPA FIRM in Tustin, CA.  She offered the members her insight and expertise to how to have a success mindset and to create powerful connections that last, creating increased profits.  Each member was able to present a key challenge or opportunity that they were currently facing and Kim shared her advice that set the members up to add to their action plan they were creating for the next 30 days. Kim was a key player and very well received in the meeting.

As CEO, Kim Shepherd leads the company’s growth strategy, primarily through developing partnerships, alliances and as an active member of the Los Angeles and Orange County human resources community. A recognized “Thought Leader” by HR organizations nationwide including the Human Capital Institute, Kim is a regular speaker at national and regional events on the topic of recruitment best practices, recruitment process outsourcing, and the “virtual” business. Drawing on her many years of hands-on recruitment experience, Kim also plays a strong role in company operations.

Kim joined Decision Toolbox in 2000, and brought her unconventional approach to the company she had admired as a client.
