The host of "Firing Line with Bill Kutik" is also the co-chair of the HR Technology Conference® and Expo, which opens in Las Vegas, October 3-5, 2011. Kutik said, "Four days before the HR Technology Conference opens, HR professionals will be able to view our premiere show, a lively and provocative exchange on leading edge HR topics."

For 22 years he has been the Technology Columnist for Human Resource Executive magazine, also serving as co-chairman of the magazine's industry defining annual conference.

Charles S. Jones has spent much of his career as an operating executive for a wide range of large public international companies and small growth-driven private companies.

He may be doing that again at Peoplefluent by bringing together Peopleclick and Authoria under a new brand that reflects the company's commitment to workplace innovation. Our discussion will be both informative and entertaining for a wide range of viewers."
