The summit will be held in Las Vegas on September 28th and 29th.
Here’s what the Best Firms Summit website has to say about the event:
Presented by CE News, Structural Engineering & Design,
The Zweig HR Letter and the Environmental
Business Journal, the two-day conference will explore
topics such as retaining top talent in tough times,
workforce planning in an economic downturn and beyond,
firm cultures that motivate and inspire commitment,
retooling your current workforce, diversification
strategies, staffing and cash flow, managing overhead,
training and workforce development, benefits
integration, legal issues, and best practices, as well
as provide unlimited networking opportunities for all
involved in the business of architecture, engineering,
and environmental consulting.
Here’s what I have to say about the event:
The opening and closing keynotes are going to be given by KA Connect 2010 speakers. (Randy Deutsch on keeping employees engaged and Markku Allison on collaboration.)
John Soter and Pam Britton, also KA Connect 2010 speakers, are speaking on leadership and training. John promises not to talk about apes this time.
Marjanne Pearson and Christine Brack, both friends of Knowledge Architecture, will be speaking about talent management and benchmarking.
And somehow…they let me slip through the cracks.
I’ll be flying solo presenting “Beyond Marketing: Leveraging Social Media Tools for Thought Leadership, Recruiting, and Knowledge Management” on Tuesday afternoon.
Then I’ll team up with Marjanne Pearson on Wednesday morning to lead a workshop called “Harnessing the Power of Social Media to Enhance Competitive Advantage.”
Employee Engagement. Collaboration. Leadership. Training. Organizational Learning. Talent Management. Benchmarking. Knowledge Management. Social Media.
That’s the stuff I see HR Directors, CFOs, COOs, CMOs and practice leaders wrestling with at architecture and engineering firms every day.
I’m really looking forward to digging into these topics with some of the best thinkers in the industry.
See you in Vegas
Kudus to Amy Walsh and the rest of her team at Stagnito Media on putting together a great program.
