We’re less than two weeks away from the first-ever TLNT Transform conference in Austin, Texas (Feb. 26-28), and here’s a question we asked some of our speakers: what (or who) transformed your career?

Today, that question gets answered by Dawn Hrdlica-Burke, the VP of People for Daxko, a Birmingham, Alabam-based software and services provider for non-profits. Dawn will be part of a panel discussion at Transform on Social Media in the Workplace – Where is it Today, Where is it Going TomorrowShe’ll be joined by a number of other HR professionals and attorney (and frequent TLNT contributor) Eric Meyer in what is surely going to be a wide-ranging and engaging panel discussion.

As VP of People at Daxko, Dawn Burke is responsible for helping the Daxko team find great talent, develop team members, preserve Daxko unique culture and manage the general HR function of the company. It’s what makes her a great HR and talent management professional — and, another reason why you should be attending Transform later this month.
