Testimony: “I saw Jill speak to the ACCP lunch group in December and she is a very engaging and knowledgeable speaker with lots of relevant information to the staffing industry. She will cover topics such as the labor force and unemployment, growth industries, new companies coming to KC and the possibility of building a high speed train between KC and St. Louis. She will also talk about the coming shortage of office space, hotels and other infrastructure based on our area growth projections, and what we must do to prepare for the near term. If you staff or support the construction, housing or hospitality industries in any way, get ready for a long boom period! I really enjoyed Jill’s presentation and the insightful questions from the group, and I encourage all to attend”. Bruce Putman
