The Conference Board’s 2011 Future Leaders Conference (Discount Code)

If you’ve taken a look at my Speaking & Conference schedule for the next few months, you’ll see that I’ll be attending and/or speaking at several really great events. I’m excited about them all for a variety of reasons and each will provide its share of takeaways, new relationships and opportunities!

One upcoming event I’d like to highlight for you (and offer you a discount code) is the 2011 Future Leaders Conference in Chicago, Illinois September 14 – 15, 2011. The theme for the conference is – “Rethinking How We Attract, Identify, & Develop High Potential & Next Generation Leadership Talent” and this conference is put on by the good folks at The Conference Board.

At this conference, attendees will:

  • Explore best-in-class approaches to attract, identify, assess, and develop emerging leaders
  • Discuss leadership development strategies, methodologies, and tools used to meet the needs of high potential talent
  • Learn about unique challenges of next generation leadership development in emerging markets
  • Network with innovative leaders and discover new ideas to drive leadership development

Over the last couple of years, I’ve attended several Conference Board events and I can say with no hesitation that they are some of the highest quality, most well-run events around. Each of their conferences include great speakers (the majority of whom are practitioners) from leading companies sharing best practices and their experiences.

    • I won’t be speaking at The Future Leaders Conference, but looking forward to learning from those who will be!

      As for the upcoming conferences I’ll be attending and also speaking, they include:

      Recruiting Trends/OnRec Global Recruiting Summit 2011 – Chicago, IL
      LinkedIn Talent Connect 2011 – Las Vegas, NV
      The Nonprofit Human Resources Conference – Washington, DC
      MNSHRM State Conference – St. Cloud, MN
      SHRM Colorado State Conference – Keystone, CO

      There are also a couple of conferences that I’m scheduled to attend where I’m also in discussions to be a presenter, but it’s not yet confirmed. So for now, I include my session title if I’m a speaker and if I’m only attending, just the conference name on my Speaking/Conference schedule page.

      I hope we can connect in person at an even in the near future! I’ve got to cross Nevada off my list on the way to my goal of speaking in every state. 🙂
