Proseed event wrap-up: “Employee Empowerment & the Bottom Line” with k. Hugh Van Es – May 25th 2023

Last week we had another fascinating Proseed event, and enjoyed the presentation “Employee Empowerment & the Bottom Line” from Hugh Van Es, CEO of Proquanet, and the author of “Hell in Paradise”, soon to be published by Olympia Publishers.

Hugh related his experiences over a period of years implementing Employee Empowerment programs at Swarovski gems Thailand, and gave good pointers on the HOW of the process, as well as the ROI that was achieved as a result.

I thank Hugh for his sharing and suggest those who want to learn more connect with him on Linkedin.

Thanks for joining!

It was a very pleasant evening. I thank you all for joining, and for your ongoing support for the children under the care of
