4 Great Reasons to Attend TLNT’s High Performance Workforce Summit

Here’s something you might not know: Last year’s TLNT High Performance Workforce Summit had one of the highest attendee ratings of any conference ever put on by ERE Media.

Yes, it was such a critical success that we are bringing the event back again.

As someone who has attended literally hundreds of conferences, most of them in the HR space, it was my goal to make the High Performance Workforce Summit unique and different from any other talent management event out there.

So with that, here are four (4) great reasons why you need to attend TLNT’s 2015 High Performance Workforce Summit May 6-7 in Atlanta:

1. Great speakers

Since I attend a lot of conferences, I find that I keep seeing and hearing a lot of the same speakers saying the same old things.HPW2015

That’s not what you’ll find at the High Performance Workforce Summit. We’ve worked hard to put together an agenda unlike anything you’ll find at other events from people with great insights on building — and maintaining — a high performance workforce. I’m talking about talent management leaders such as

  • Jeri Buchholz, Chief Human Capital Officer and Assistant Administrator, Human Capital Management, at NASA;
  • Stacey Valy Panayiotou, Vice President,  Global Talent & Development, for Coca-Cola;
  • Kevin Wilde, Vice President of Organizational Effectiveness and Chief Learning Officer, at General Mills;
  • Dr. Valeria Stokes, Chief Human Resources Officer & Chief Diversity Officer, American Bar Association;
  • Emily Johns, Director, Talent and Performance Management, at Nestle USA;
  • John Rhodes. Director, Human Resources, Operations Services Group at Exterran;
  • Belinda Hyde, Chief Human Resource Officer, Schnitzer Steel;
  • Colleen McManus, a Chief Human Resource Officer for the State of Arizona;
  • And many others, including great HR thinkers like Dave Ulrich and Dr. John Sullivan

2.  Great venue

The 2015 High Performance Workforce Summit will be held again in Atlanta, Georgia, which is not only a great conference town, but easy to get to from most major cities in the U.S.

In addition, the conference is being held at a great property — the Omni CNN Center Hotel — which is in downtown Atlanta near the Georgia Dome, World Congress Center, and Centennial Olympic Park.

It’s a great location AND a great property that’s hard to beat.

3. Great networking

One of the highlights of the 2014 High Performance Workforce Summit was the opportunity to meet and network with great talent management professionals about their own challenges in building a truly great and high performing workforce.

As an avid and frequent conference-goer, I find that although the speakers and what they said might fade with time, the great relationships I build at an event like this stay with me long after I go back home.

There is really no better place to find like-minded people you can meet and who can help give you their own great insights on what they are doing to meet the huge talent management challenges we face in 2015 and behind. To me, this alone is worth the price of admission.

4. A great price

And speaking of the price of admission, you can get a great discount on the High Performance Workforce Summit if you sign up now.

It allows you to set your schedule to be in Atlanta in early May (the best time of the year to be there, in my book), and, save your company a little money in the process. That’s hard to beat.

Great content and great speakers from TLNT

I spend my time each day putting together great content for you here on TLNT, and that’s what I have done for the High Performance Workforce Summit as well. In fact, I tell people that if you like TLNT you will surely love this conference because I spent a lot of time looking for speakers who reflected the same great insights you enjoy at TLNT.

The New Year is here, and it’s time to start working on your 2015 resolutions. Shouldn’t building a better and more high performing workforce be at the top of your list? If it is, you should keep that resolution and take advantage today of the early bird rate to attend next May’s High Performance Workforce Summit at the Omni CNN Center Hotel in Atlanta.

I’ll be looking for you there!
