"Speed Mentoring" Session
Would you find value in either listening to others share their career stories (as a mentee) or sharing your story (as a mentor)? This dynamic and interactive mentoring session puts you in a room full of mentees in direct small group discussions with mentors in a “speed dating” format. It's a powerful way to connect with your peers and make connections with others before the conference begins!

Note: Due to overwhelming demand and registrations, the Speed Mentoring room has been changed to San Antonio Ballroom A.

About the Facilitator:

Beth Potratz is the founder and CEO of the Cleveland based start-up, Drive My Way (DMW). She is an innovative, forward-thinking HR professional that is completely disrupting truck driver recruiting by treating the driver as a consumer in the employment relationship. While redesigning the truck driver recruiting process for a large industry HR consulting client, Beth quickly recognized the problem and realized that a driver-centric approach was the solution. DMW represents the intersection between a driver’s lifestyle and career. DMW’s Vision is “To empower truck drivers to live the life they deserve, while doing a job they love.” The DMW Mission is “Matching truck drivers to jobs, changing lives and creating value for drivers, carriers and all those they serve.” This mission statement manifests itself in everything DMW does, from personalizing the recruiting experience; matching on personal lifestyle preferences; pushing matches to both the driver and carrier; allowing drivers to control access to their own data; and creating value for customers as they save time, increase revenue by expediting the hiring process and improve retention by focusing on best fit.
