Meet the Group


I am thrilled to be a part of the team traveling to Portugal in June.  I am very interested in broadening my cultural awareness and international knowledge. In addition, I look forward to learning from my colleagues and faculty to improve and enhance my own leadership skills especially as they relate to my human resources work.  Finally, I look forward to learning more about human resources in Portugal, businesses to compare and contrast, and the similarities and differences to the United States.


On this trip I hope to gain experience traveling internationally, and to learn more about the culture and history of Portugal.  I am looking forward to learning about HR Leadership from an international perspective, and sharing this learning experience with a unique and varied group of students and faculty.


I’m so excited about the opportunity to travel to Lisbon, Portugal. This is my first experience with international travel and I’m sure the exposure to cross-cultural similarities and differences will be very enlightening.  I look forward to gaining new experiences and insights from a different cultural perspective.  This course will allow me to explore leadership at the individual, organizational, and global levels. I look forward to learning from the experiences of my fellow students and our extraordinary faculty. I would like to thank all of the individuals that were instrumental in making this opportunity possible.


Since the law firms I work with are not international firms, I hope that this trip will broaden my professional perspective of the world, and I will come away with knowledge that I can apply in my current position.  I also look forward to the cultural experience of traveling abroad for the first time in my life. I am very excited to hear Dr. Shuck speak at the conference.


I want the world to be a smaller place!  I am excited to represent UofL and participate in the UFHRD Conference hosted in Lisbon.  When it comes to experiencing life in this world, I look forward to hearing from the people that have dedicated their lives to becoming experts in the field of Human Resource Development.  Plus, I am eager see to presentations on recent research in the field.


I am very excited to attend the UFHRD conference in Portugal for many reasons.  It will be my first time traveling to Europe and I have a feeling it won't be my last!  Besides seeing the beautiful country and trying new food, I am most excited for the conference.  I hope to gain a better perspective on being a leader across different cultures.  I'm excited to hear our very own UofL professor, Dr. Shuck speak, as I have learned a lot from him when conducting research on employee engagement.  I am also looking forward to the networking opportunity with people from all over the world.  I am confident that this trip will be one of my most memorable and rewarding learning experiences! 


I love to travel and I’ve always wanted to see Portugal. I’m excited to get a global perspective on Leadership and Organizational Development and have a chance to network with colleagues from around the world. This will be my final academic project as an undergraduate and I can’t think of a better send off.
