Training & Development Summit Announces New Speaker

The Training & Development Summit taking place in Philadelphia, PA on March 14 & 15, 2016 is pleased to announce award-winning author and recognized columnist, Dan Schawbel, will be speaking. 

Schawbel is the New York Times bestselling author of Promote Yourself & Me 2.0, partner and research director at Future Workplace, founder of Millennial Branding & WorkplaceTrends.com, Inc. Magazine & Forbes Magazine 30 Under 30, and a TIME / Forbes Columnist. 

He has spoken at more than one hundred events and has conducted 27 primary research studies focused on workplace trends and has interviewed more than 1,500 people to date. 

Topics for discussion at March's Summit include:

  • The Leadership Imperative: How to Find, Engage & Develop the Next Generation of Leaders
     In the next five years, 20 million baby boomers will retire, leaving institutions worldwide without leadership positions filled. Almost half of companies haven't even analyzed the impact of this impeding trend on their workforce and fewer than one fourth of companies have made succession planning a priority. To make matters worse, millenials are switching companies every two years. In this discussion, you will hear about the top ways you can engage with the next generation of leaders so you can retain and fill your executive level positions, view groundbreaking new global research that will instruct you how to create the right leadership, training and succession planning programs that support future leaders, and listen to case studies from forward-thinking companies on how to create next generation corporate leadership programs.
  • Building the Workforce of Tomorrow: How to Recruit, Retain & Grow Your Young Talent
    Restless Gen-Y workers - often faced with unfulfilling or static positions - frequently leave their posts within two years. But as Millennials become the dominant generation in the office - set to represent 75 percent of the entire workforce by 2025 - companies must learn to keep them engaged and motivated by creating more opportunities for them. How can corporations retain young workers? In this presentation geared toward HR leaders and managers, speaker Dan Schawbel shares advice, research, case studies (including Sodexo, Ernst & Young, Intel, DreamWorks, and more), and examples to illustrate how employers can both attract and manage Gen-Y workers to allow them to rise up to leadership positions instead of leaving for other opportunities.

The Training & Development Summit is the most productive and complimentary networking event for senior-level training executives. Unlike a traditional convention or trade show, this summit introduces executives to solution providers during one-on-one targeted meetings. All meetings are pre-arranged and are strategically coordinated based on upcoming projects and interests. A seminar program at the summit offers educational opportunities and peer-to-peer networking is incorporated over meals and receptions.
