2014 CEO Sponsor Only Events

2014 Sponsors' Benefit Program: Preparing Leaders for the Future of HR

Friday, May 9, 2014
Burbank, CA
Hosted by The Walt Disney Company

CEO Sponsor Benefit Event: Each year, CEO holds a special "sponsor only" event where each sponsor organization is able to send a team of delegates at no cost for learning, networking, and sharing best practices.

We are excited that Disney is partnering with us to host the 2014 benefit event! Are HR professionals prepared to deliver against the challenges facing them and their businesses today? Is the HR profession evolving rapidly enough to meet challenges such as sustainability, gamification and segmentation? How does the HR evolution need to reflect a deeper more impactful approach to strategic partnership?

We are bringing John Boudreau, Jay Conger, and Jayne Parker together to discuss the changes and the necessary leadership to most effectively manage in this evolving time. John will discuss new evidence from the Center for Effective Organizations on HR transformation and change, and how HR professionals can apply business acumen to operationalize and execute upon business strategies, and prioritize their approaches to emerging challenges. In this era where leadership often occurs without formal authority, Jay will address how to increase your sphere of influence and impact. Jayne Parker, Executive Vice President and CHRO of The Walt Disney Company will be Keynote.
