Today’s interview is a great opportunity for me to share with you. China Gorman is a good friend, colleague and respected business leader. You may have known her through her leadership roles with SHRM and Great Place to Work. In 2009, I had the chance to interview China.
Today, China has an exciting professional development opportunity for human resource professionals. UNLEASH is the event’s name and will be held in Las Vegas from May 15-16, 2018.
Not all HR professionals are interested in attending conferences. And not all HR pros have the funds to travel to a conference. Conferences can be an excellent way to learn and grow professionally if you have the budget and interest.
In the live event space, content is more important than ever. In short bursts, organizers need to bring expert speakers to the stage.
UNLEASH America 2018 will be held in Las Vegas, May 15-16, 2018; most speakers are given between 20 and 30 minutes to present or discuss their ideas in our conference format. This lets attendees learn from almost three times more speakers than at other events.
We can attract thought leaders such as Mo Gawdat and Rachel Botsman and executives from some of the most innovative companies in the world Academics and analysts from IDC Bersin by Deloitte Bloom & Wallace, Bloom & Wallace, and others are also present. Over 100 of the most influential leaders, thinkers, and thought leaders will be on the 9 stages for two days.
The UNLEASH Expo is a premier live event space. Participants will have access to a carefully curated solution expo unavailable to everyone. We have more than 100 sponsors and exhibitors who are part of the larger organization’s effectiveness ecosystem. They are available to interact with our attendees, which include senior decision-makers (not just HR). Organization influencers.
Attending live events geared towards your peers is crucial for success in networking. It is important to get to know your peers and exchange ideas. You prefer to be in a humane environment to one that is more like a cattle-call environment. You want to network with like-minded leaders who will keep you in touch long after the event has ended. You desire an environment that encourages learning, connection, and discovering new solutions.
Good question. UNLEASH’s focus goes beyond HR technology. The UNLEASH concept is that technology and leadership are essential to unleashing the potential of people in an organization. It also emphasizes the importance of future work. UNLEASH is not just an HR technology conference. For two days, UNLEASH brings together the C-Suites of large, medium and start-up companies, academic leaders, and the most innovative solutions specialists in one place for discussion, engagement and demos.
Although it sounds overwhelming, this event connects thought and solution leaders with organization leaders. They will be able to have in-depth discussions at the round tables, on the stages and in the start-up zone. UNLEASH is unlike any other event.
Las Vegas is certainly a great place to visit. It’s also a very affordable city for conferences. Las Vegas is a great place to host conferences of all sizes.
As a Las Vegas resident, you will quickly lose the attraction of the casino lights, slot machines and table games once you have stayed at a few resorts. It is a very welcoming and efficient town for conferences. The airport is on the Strip, so even taxi, Uber, or Lyft fares between baggage claims and conference hotels are very affordable.
After you have dealt with the cost side of the equation, you can handle the content aspects. Print out the UNLEASH speaker list. Finding a larger and more diverse speaker list in live events won’t be easy. This investment will pay dividends.
UNLEASH Group organizes live events around the globe! Each autumn, Europe hosts the largest event of its kind. The UNLEASH World Conference & Expo returns to Amsterdam this fall (October 23-24th, 2018). It hosted an extremely successful event in London earlier this spring.
Our website has a lot of original content edited by Mary Ellen Slayter and interesting shared content. It is quickly becoming the most popular site for news, opinion and survey results.
China shared a lot of valuable information about this opportunity for professional development with us. UNLEASH seems like a great event to challenge my thinking. It would be grossly remiss of me not to mention China’s blog. You should subscribe if you haven’t already.
