After the 2008 conference, I was asked to join the volunteer board that organizes this event, and accepted a position as the Information Management Chair. Indeed, being part of the process this year has truly changed my perspective on the event. What I had seen as a one day event, which I really looked forward to, has become the culmination of so much work from my peers that it I now see the day of of the conference as a relief. Relief that it's finally here. Relief that our hard work paid off. Relief that I could take a month off from thinking about it... or almost a month. Beginning in a few weeks, we'll be working hard at putting together the pieces to execute the 2010 conference.
However, before we move ahead, it's good to take a moment to look back and appreciate the highlights of the 2009 Human Capital Summit. We were able to offer a very well-received variety of presentations, including:
'Managing your Talent out of the Gate; Trends and Best Practices'Aside from the great sessions, there was a great amount of energy, enthusiasm, and camaraderie all around.
‘What is a Green HR office?’
‘What is your Brand?’
‘Retaining and engaging the Older Worker’
‘Surviving a DOL Audit’
‘20/20 Employment Branding’
‘How to Use Technology but not Feel used by Technology’
‘Strategic Development of Sustainable HR Policies’
‘The ABCs of Total Compensation’
