Embrace Business Opportunities

The Conference Board

So often in my career, I see opportunities come and go and people make all kinds of excuses as to why they can’t embrace them.  I’ve found that the more I say “yes” or “I will make this happen somehow”, the more I progress in my career.  One of those game-changing moments came last December when I attended the Senior HR Executive conference in New York City.  I knew that being able to surround myself with CEO’s, CHRO’s, and other business executives would only help me learn and network.  I made some great connections and now, just one year later, I have used many of the things I learned at that conference to change my life.

So, now’s your chance.

The Senior HR Executive conference, hosted by The Conference Board, will be November 30- December 1, 2010.  And, if you use code TM1, you can save $500 off your registration fee. Space is limited, so I encourage you to register today!  Come join me as we explore how Human Resources is advancing globally.  Here are just a few of the intriguing sessions offered:

  • Keynote: Speed, Complexity and Organizational Agility: Surviving and Thriving in the New Normal

Susan Chambers, Executive Vice President, People Division, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc

  • The Role of the CHRO in Advancing the CEO’s Agenda

Marilyn Draper, Partner, Oliver Wyman Delta

  • Leveraging Social Networking: Communication, Innovation and Engagement

Eric Mosley, Chief Executive Officer, Globoforce

  • Keynote Address with Deputy Secretary of Labor Seth Harris

  • Good Money After Bad? Making Talent Investments Deliver on their Promise

Marc Effron, Author, One Page Talent Management

If you’ve never been to a Conference Board event, I assure you it is different than any other conference.   The focus is purely on your learning.  If you have any questions, let me know in the comments.  Also, let me know in the comments if you’re attending. I hope to see you all there!!
