Building a culture of trust and behavioral interviewing for selection of human capital

At the crossroads of economics, technology and human capital, business leaders find themselves in an ever-changing environment where they must make decisions, rely on others to execute, hold people accountable for performance — and keep their teams operating seamlessly as challenges arise. In this scenario trust is paramount, yet a global survey from PwC found 55% of CEOs identified lack of trust in their organization as a very real threat. In his presentation, Gustavo Grodnitzky will provide a science-based, actionable formula for creating trust, imparting a four-step process you can implement immediately.


Barry Broome

President and CEO, Greater Sacramento Economic Council

The vision for the Greater Sacramento region

California is the most profitable state in the country. As its capital, Sacramento is uniquely poised to offer businesses access to talent, resources and geographic advantage — minus the astronomical price tag of cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco. In his presentation, Barry Broome will draw from his experience as current president and CEO of the Greater Sacramento Economic Council, to discuss leveraging the Northern California megaregion, driving innovation and why talent is so vital. Leave understanding why Sacramento is the “California option,” with proven growth strategies to achieve exponential change.
