TEDx Speaker Ira S. Wolfe has danced with change and technology his entire life.  It’s not surprising then that he took the most unlikely of career pathways to becoming one of the most prominent and influential thought leaders in human resources today, as well as a prominent HR speaker and expert. Before launching Success Performance Solutions over two decades ago, Wolfe was a dentist who “loved everything about dentistry but dentistry.” After 18 years he walked away. Instead of filling holes in teeth, he began to help businesses fill job vacancies. Today, Ira Wolfe is described as a “Millennial trapped in a Baby Boomer body,” inspiring clients and audiences to challenge preconceptions about what it takes to attract, select, manage, and retain top talent and take the initiative to make change work for them. His first book The Perfect Labor Storm launched him onto the national stage which was followed by Geeks, Geezers, and Googlization. His 2016 TEDx Talk Make Change Work for You became the inspiration and launching pad for his latest book and keynote of the same name Recruiting in the Age of Googlization: When the Shift Hits Your Plan.
