The information and statistics Dr. Doug Lewis presented were both informative and a bit daunting. If an estimated 10 million jobs are expected to be unfilled in 2010, it is imperative for all HR professionals to focus not just on recruiting but, even more importantly, on retention of our current employees. We have our work cut out for us and the information Doug detailed tells us we better start developing our strategy now!

I had the pleasure of hearing Dr. Doug Lewis speak at the June 12, 2007 HRACO luncheon on The Age Boom: Big Bang or Big Bust! The material was so informative and eye opening. I appreciate you sharing your time and energy with our group. I have heard so many talks recently on how to manage a multi-generational workforce. However, no presentation offered a realistic preview - supported by facts, figures, and heartfelt observations - of the role and impact of the Baby Boomer Generation in the coming 5, 10, 20 years, as Doug's "Age Boom" presentation. I feel better prepared to strategically act in response to a changing workforce and labor pool. Thanks, Doug!

As a Boomer, I felt a strong link to the good information and statistics that Dr. Doug Lewis provided in his presentation. He is right on target with the need for companies to appreciate current and future demographics of the coming labor crunch as Boomers reach retirement age. But above all, employers should value and respect their aging workforce, seriously consider flexible and other work schedules, and do everything possible to retain the knowledge and experience that will soon walk out their doors.

Joy:

I just wanted to take a few moments to thank you for being the "Country Expert / Facilitator" at our recent session of Doing Business in the Philippines seminar. Your extensive knowledge of the cultural differences between the U.S. and the Philippines was evident during the seminar.

Your presentation was professional, humorous, and addressed the specific concerns of the audience. Your insights into the cultural nuances that affect U.S. companies doing business globally were very helpful to our employees. We really appreciated the recommendations you made to enhance our communications with our partners and employees in Manila.

Again, thank you for a wonderful session. I look forward to working with you in the future.

Warmest Regards,

Strategic HR Management can be overwhelming. Joy helped bring all the issues and topics into perspective with real world challenges and solicited examples from our peers. Her focus was to help us learn as opposed to lecturing us. The additional handouts were insightful and will be of great help in best learning the material. Thank you Joy, for making this a wonderful learning experience.

Joy Kouns recently spoke at the Ohio Northern University. Professor Kouns is a dynamic speaker with a plethora of knowledge. She is engaging, entertaining and passionate in her presentation. I would highly recommend Professor Kouns. She certainly had an important positive impact on those attending and participated in preparing the leaders of the next decade for their professional careers.

It was a pleasure to have her and I hope she will consider returning next year and into the future!

Dr. Doug Lewis has played an essential role in the business development of my two businesses. He has developed Employee Handbooks for both, written all of my HIPAA Compliance material, and has been an ongoing valuable legal resource for both my personal and business affairs. He is also a dedicated educator and a terrific speaker as noted in his numerous requests from organizations to present at their conventions or seminars.

Doug Lewis provided us, in 2005 and 2006, with outstanding presentations. The Mid-America Conference on Hearing received more compliments and requests for return presentations than any speaker we have had in the past 15 years. His topics and interaction with the audience is superb. We plan to have him back many times.

  • Pat Cook,CEO
  • Mid-America Conference on Hearing

Dr. Lewis was a “Fountain of Information”. He was well educated and informed about all levels of the law and ethics and was able to relate key concepts to what practitioners do everyday.

Dr. Lewis is a jack-of-all-trades with a vast knowledge of many topics. He is an outstanding and professional presenter, but has an easy to understand and collegial manner.

Doug’s strengths as both a Clinical Audiologist and Attorney are incredible…he really knows his topics and is excellent with interacting with attendees.

Doug has a great combination of education and experience and is so helpful to his seminar participants. His presentations give great examples of the subjects and topics covered.

Doug’s information is very eye-opening and real-world. His presentations are relevant to all businesses and sharpened our awareness to the implications of legal actions and issues impacting businesses.
