[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.

On day two, everyone was back to business for more meetings and seminars. Before heading back to their offices, attendees participated in a raffle prize drawing over lunch where National Vice President of Training from Toll Brothers, Cynthiann King, took home an online one-on-one assessment from Taking Flight Learning. Other winners included Rene Persin of Hartford Funds and Patrick Paul of Anderson Center for Autism who both took home Seiko watches. Vendors who participated in the draw prizes included DeVry University, Stewart Leadership and CareerArc.

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.
