This week's special guest is Matt Burns, Human Resources Executive and evangelist. He is bringing HR professionals into the new and future with his HR in VR meetups in AltspaceVR, and the first all VR conference July 28-29 for HR professionals, consultants, and trainers.

Supporting organizations based in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia & South America as an HR consultant and professional, Matt Burns is determined to integrate immersive technologies into HR for interviews, hiring, training, workplace workflow, sensitivity training, and more. In 2018, his HR teach was as the 'Canadian HR Team of the Year - Retail / Hospitality,' on the heels of their 2017 award for the: 'Most Innovative Use of HR Technology.'

In late 2018, Matt announced the launch of the Global HR Collective, a social enterprise raising $1M for grassroots charities supporting mental health advocacy & women entrepreneurs and the upcoming Global HR Summit. He serves as a Board Advisor for several purpose-driven organizations, and is a frequent keynote speaker at HR conferences around the globe.

Now with BentoHR and his popular podcast, Thinking Inside the Box podcast, Matt's advancing his vision that technology and data are the key to liberating organizations, and their people, in the 21st century.

High schools, colleges, and university work closely with human resources companies, staff, employees, and educators to prepare students for their future jobs. Companies around the world are demanding VR/AR/XR skills and familiarity. Matt Burns and his team leads experts from around the world to embrace spatial technologies in human resources collaboration, training, advancement, and socializing.

The Global HR Summit is in AltspaceVR July 28-29, and features special events and the leading experts in human resources and XR technology. It's an opportunity to not just explore the potential of VR in HR, but bring people together from around the world in an interactive and social environment.
