3 Must-See Reasons to Attend Transform Next Month in Austin

I’ve written here a lot about the great speakers that will be at the first-ever TLNT Transform conference next month (Feb. 27-28) in sunny Austin, Texas. What I haven’t done, however, is specifically answered the question I get asked — “why should I attend?”

It’s a good question and one I get a lot. And, I’ve answered it in many different and varied ways.

Yes, there are lots of reasons I could give you for why you need to be at Transform in Austin next month, but here are three that jump to the top of my mind:

  • You’ll get lots of forward-thinking insights into what you need to succeed tomorrow in talent management (and HR). I’ve attended a lot of conferences, and I can’t think of many sessions that actually helped me better understand what I needed to do to succeed in the future. That’s what makes Transform so different. Whether it be Jim Knight of Hard Rock International talking about “How to Build a Team of Rock Stars,” or author Jeanne Meister on Preparing NOW for the 2020 Workplace,the speakers at Transform will guide and challenge you as you in what you’ll need to succeed with your workforce tomorrow.
  • You’ll hear Billy Beane of “Moneyball” fame tell you about the lessons of his innovative (and now famous) talent management system. Brad Pitt may get the Academy Award nomination, but it is Billy Beane who built major league baseball’s famous system that allowed his small-market Oakland ball club compete with the big boys in New York and Boston. “The Moneyball Approach to Talent Management” will give you some practical, real life insights and takeaways you can use in your own workforce tomorrow.
  • You’ll spend two days in warm and sunny Austin, Texas (no small deal in the winter) out of the office and engaged with other forward thinking talent management professionals in an environment where you can step back and think a little about your future needs and challenges of tomorrow instead of being focused just on what you need to do to get through today.

Not your typical conference

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: TLNT Transform isn’t your typical talent management or HR conference. It has been carefully designed to prepare you for the challenges and changes you’ll be facing tomorrow and beyond, not just about what you should be doing in the here and now. That’s something you won’t get at most conferences, yet it is something incredibly important if you are going to be ready to succeed in the world we face tomorrow.
