[EVENT RECAP]: Training & Development Summit Take On Society Hill

Meeting 2.jpgPHILADELPHIA, PA – The Training & Development Summit and HR & Employee Benefits Summit hosted nearly 630 business meetings in Philadelphia on March 14-15, 2016. For executives attending the summit, it was an opportunity to connect, learn about and discuss the latest technologies and services in the industry.

HR, training and devlopment decision makers from companies including 4M Building Solutions, Dow Chemical, Johns Hopkins, Johnson & Johnson and Toll Brothers, Inc. met with leading solution providers offering a variety of services in the heart of downtown Philadelphia. “This event was like no other event I have ever been a part of,” exclaimed the Director of Human Resources from Martin Insurance Group, “You receive one-on-one time with vendors of your choice and get the time to learn about products you might not have realized were out there.”

Industry thought leaders also hosted seminars for executive attendees, including New York Times bestselling author and Fortune 500 consultant, Daniel Schawbel.  Mr. Schawbel hosted an intimate seminar to 30 of our attendees, the same seminar that he will later present to more than 3,500 people at SHRM in Washington DC. Topics included leadership, recruiting, talent management, management training, and leveraging technology in the human resources industry.

“Not only was this experience great for meeting vendors, but also for getting the chance to talk to other individuals in similar roles to me,” said the Head of Senior Recruitment from Suarez Corporation following numerous networking activities and meals. Delegate attendees connected with both vendors and peers during a gala dinner where lobster ravioli and cheesecake were both a huge hit! Later that night, attendees took to the blackjack tables for a chance to win a grand prize.

Other winners included Rene Persin of Hartford Funds and Patrick Paul of Anderson Center for Autism who both took home Seiko watches.
