The theme this year is "Building the Borderless Workplace" - how organizations can build modern, high-performing talent, leadership, and learning strategies to take advantage of the workplace and workforce of today.
This theme is very appropriate, given the changes in the middle east. Today's successful organizations are breaking down barriers around the globe, across business units and divisions, across generations and cultures, and across organizational levels. And high-performance companies today are open: they use social networks for recruiting, employee branding, customer communications, marketing, and product innovation. All these changes dramatically change the way we manage people, how we develop people, and how we build and assess leadership.
Why should you come join us? Let me give you some fantastic reasons.
1. The People. Each year we carefully select session leaders and panelists who are among the most successful, innovative, and business-oriented people in our industry. All speakers have been hand selected by our analysts, representing some of the most powerful and innovative solutions in the market. This year this includes leaders like:
3. The Conference Experience. Our conference is one of the only events in our industry which is 100% focused on modern best-practices and new research in all aspects of learning, talent management, and human resources. The event is fun, informal, highly collaborative, and a valuable development experience for your entire HR team and leadership. And we deliberately keep the event to a limited size: we will max out at around 400 attendees, which means the experience is intimate and will likely sell out. (register now!)
This year we have a special program called "IMPACT for Teams," available to our research members, which pairs one of our analysts with your team to help you build a customized learning and collaboration experience just for your organization. Contact us if you would like to bring your team.
4. The Solution Providers. As a premier analyst firm, we talk with hundreds of HR, L&D, and talent management solution providers each year. This year we have the privelige of hosting many of these firms, who will be available to meet you in the demo center and join in the learning experience. These include companies such as CornerstoneOnDemand, DDI, IMPACT Achievement Group, Mindleaders, Adobe, AchieveGlobal, GeneralPhysics, Harvard Publishing, Kelly School of Business, LinkedIN, Plateau, SkillSoft, Stepstone Solutions, The Right Thing, ADP, GetAbstract, IBM, iLoveRewards, Lawson, RapidLD, Richardson, Saba, SumTotal, TEDS, Technomedia, TowersWatson, and Vangent. These companies will bring their top executives for you to meet and talk with.
Finally, let me say that our entire analyst and consulting team looks forward to meeting you. All year we work hard to bring you research, tools, and information which makes your job easier - we look forward to this opportunity to spend time meeting with you personally, and hearing about your new strategies and challenges in the year ahead.
