    Broadening Security Concerns in Today's Workplace

    12:00 pm to 1:00 pm Speaker Presentation

    Presented by Jeff McKissack


    Physical, data and reputational risks will be the three main topics of this presentation as we look at those dynamics that can put people in the emergency room and their employers in either the courtroom and/or the newsroom. Often today, what happens in the ER affects HR just as what happens in the PD can affect PR.

    What are the hot buttons related to these three main areas, what are strategies that can help those in HR mitigate such risks, and what are the suggested practices related to documentation of the same to avoid potential claims of negligence against you or your company? These all will be addressed as we all seek to proactively create more safe and secure workplaces today for us, our people, and our patrons.

    Jeff McKissack

    Jeff McKissack is a noted authority on risk and reputation management having addressed these topics over the past 35 years and to over 350,000 in live audiences, millions more via radio and television interviews.

    Jeff regularly speaks at conferences and conventions, offers onsite employee training programs, and also conducts continuing education events to a myriad of industries and professions including those in human resources management, risk management, medical, legal, financial, education, real estate, insurance and event management. He has spoken to Dallas HR, Ft. Worth HR, Mid-cities HR, Texoma HR, San Antonio HR and HR Southwest, so well familiar with our profession and its challenges.

    But when asked, Jeff best sums up his message and mission by saying, "my goal is to help you spot trouble 'before' trouble spots you," and in today's world, that is a message beneficial to us all, both personally and professionally.

         Legal Presentation by Farsheed Fozouni


    Topic: The FTC's Attempt to Reshape Competition - Banning Noncompetes

    The FTC has issued its final rule banning noncompete agreements in most (though not all) circumstances. Legal challenges have already begun, but if the rule is upheld, it will have far reaching ramifications across state lines and industries. The rule changes are substantial and will impact most noncompete agreements already in effect and ban them altogether prospectively. Some best practices as we navigate these changes will also be discussed to protect employers, as well as to protect the limited situations in which noncompetes will still be allowed. 

    Dallas native Farsheed Fozouni is an Associate Attorney at Lynn Pinker Hurst & Schwegmann specializing in Labor & Employment and Commercial Litigation.

    Before joining LPHS, Farsheed represented employers and high-level executives in employment litigation matters as a Senior Attorney at Thompson, Coe, Cousins & Irons L.L.P. He also handled commercial litigation and intellectual property litigation, including breaches of contract, trademark disputes, trade secret misappropriation, and various other commercial disputes.

    Farsheed received a BA in International Relations with a minor in Chemistry from Austin College, before going on to graduate cum laude with a JD from the SMU Dedman School of Law. He served as Executive Editor for the SMU Law Review Association, while simultaneously publishing his own work pertaining to federal law regarding the Hague Convention on Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction in 2014. He was also awarded Best Brief for Appellant and Best Oral Advocate in Round in the Jackson Walker Moot Court Competition.

    He is now licensed to practice in Texas and is a member of the Dallas Association of Young Lawyers and the Dallas Bar Association.

    Lessons from the Wild

    12:00 pm to 1:00 pm Speaker Presentation

    Presented by Beverly Parker


    I am a member of the Appalachian Trail Class of 2020. One of my favorite presentations, “Lessons from the Wild” draws on the valuable life lessons I learned on the trail and applies them to my workplace experiences.

    A few of the learning objectives of my presentation included ways to utilize expectations of a goal, recovering from disappointment, and keys to maximize endurance, accomplishment, and continuous growth. These themes of disappointment, endurance, and revival were crucial to completing my hike down the Appalachian Trail, and have forever impacted the way I approach my career and life in general.

    Beverly Parker

    More than 15 years of experience recruiting potential candidates in the fields of Accounting, Finance, and Human Resources has taught me how to identify high-quality talent. My experience paired with my passion for matching the right candidates with top employers has led me to work and volunteer with many great organizations, including Fort Worth HR, Midcities HR, Financial Additions, HR Additions, DallasHR, and my current employer, Ideal Partners.

    I’m passionate about bolstering a strong sense of community, especially within the DFW metroplex. Besides my love of networking and expanding my professional community, I take pride in volunteering for Blue Zones, an organization dedicated to improving the Fort Worth community as a whole.

    I strive to lead by example and inspire others to reach their fullest potential. I believe servant leadership is the most impactful form of leadership; I endeavor to act with grace, humility, and kindness. It is this commitment that compels me to bring my best self to every situation, both in and out of the workplace.
