Dr. John Sullivan

Dr. John Sullivan has been described as one of the leading strategists in the field of human resources around the globe. As a recognized thought leader on topics ranging from talent management to integrative HR strategy, he has been working to challenge the archaic perceptions that have limited HR’s contribution to the business for more than thirty years. Via his roles as an author, corporate advisor and educator, Sullivan challenges the status quo and offers a bold forward thinking look at what it takes to become a smarter more powerful function.

Dr. John Sullivan‘s most recent book is Rethinking Strategic HR: HR’s Role in Building a Performance Culture. The wit and no holds barred approach often intrinsic to Dr. Sullivan‘s writings and presentations has led to numerous invitations to speak on world-class human resource practices around the globe. His work on e-HR was dubbed “brilliant” by management guru Tom Peters, and Fast Company Magazine coined him the “Michael Jordan of Hiring.”

Dr. Sullivan has served as a Professor of Management at San Francisco State University for more than 20 years.
