2018 STEERING COMMITTEE
Experienced CHROs help us design a relevant and 100% peer-led educational program. Check out a sample of last year's members:
Steering Committee Members
We help CHROs and HR senior-level executives connect with peers in different industries to discuss their top-of-mind directives. Last year's attendees include:
"It’s always interesting to hear how other organizations approach the challenges we face. CONNECT is an opportunity to increase your knowledge and see what tools are out there – new ideas leading to new solutions. Other senior level Executives trying to keep up with digitalization should consider attending – a great platform to see what’s out there!"
"Great participants, panelists and vendors! "
"Company size does not matter, there is so much relevant content…and you can easily customize your schedule. Best part is being able to see the latest and greatest technology in the space. "
Connect HR is quickly establishing a reputation as the boiling pot of information, ideas and solutions. Check out last year's solutions:
"The information we learned from our one-on-one meetings is invaluable. The attendees were spot on – decision makers, ready to shortlist vendors! The event was beautifully organized and the entire process was super-efficient. I would highly recommend CONNECT to other solution providers – make this a must sponsor event in your marketing plans!"
North America's fastest-growing HR event plays host to over 250 attendees each year.
