“Having worked with Mel Kleiman over the past four years, I can unreservedly recommend him as both an expert authority on employee recruiting, selection, and retention and as a superlative speaker/trainer. Over this time, Mel has shared his HR expertise with the 15,000+ subscribers to our Multi-Unit Franchisee Magazine via his regularly published People columns. He has also served as the head of the HR track for the last four, annual Multi-Unit Franchising Conferences. If you’re looking for a program that delivers easy-to-implement, pragmatic solutions, gets rave reviews, and delivers a maximum return-on-investment, Mel is a surefire winner.”

Therese Thilgen, Co-founder and President, Franchise Update Media Group


“Excellent presenter! Mel really put himself in our shoes and provided exactly the answers our audience needed.”

Monte Arnold, Conference Coordinator for M. Lee Smith Publishing

“I hired Mel to speak for the first time many years ago at FMI’s Human Resources Conference. Just this year, Mel spoke at FMI’s new and innovative Future Connect Leadership Conference – which shows his staying power and relevance! He’s still one of the best when it comes to offering both strategies and tactics to recruit and retain the best employees. His presentations are informative AND entertaining…I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mel to anyone needing a speaker in these issue areas — he’ll deliver!”
