One of the most important measures of effectiveness for the learning and development / talent development professional is whether they are aligned with executive expectations and priorities – including the head of HR.
What does your CHRO / head of HR need and expect from the L&D/talent development function as well as you as a leader or practitioner? And what do we need to know from them so we can be impactful and effective?
In this session, you’ll hear directly from these well-respected Chief Human Resource Officers:
Donna Venable (EVP Human Resources and Deputy General Manager, Shared Services of Ricoh North America)
Cam Hicks (Corporate Vice President and CHRO of Teleflex)
Christin Joyner (EVP and CHRO of AAA Club Alliance)
We will have plenty of time for Q&A, as well as for you to network with your peers.
We hope to see you there.
