Breakout sessions

Breakfast Breakout | The Gig Economy: Access the human cloud and embrace the transformation of today's workforce

Location/Time: | 8:00 - 9:00 AM

Presenter: Ted Catino, Founder & Co-CEO GigSmart, 25+ Year Vistage Member

Across industries, today’s labor market is challenging. YOY companies are finding it difficult to source talent and remain fully staffed.

  • More American workers are choosing independent work over traditional employee positions.
  • Businesses are also increasingly interested in a “just-in-time” labor process that allows access to specialized labor, as well as, extra headcount when business needs increase.
  • Labor experts make a very strong argument that the Industrial Revolution moved much of the workforce from self-employment to structured payroll jobs. Now the digital revolution may be creating a shift in the opposite direction.

Learn how to embrace these trends to maximize your staffing strategy.

 

Lunch Breakout | The Envelope: Bringing it all together: strategy, succession and you

Location/Time: | 12:05 - 1:20 PM

Presenter: Executives from U.S. Trust

Your business represents years of sweat and sacrifice. Not only does the business provide the financial resources to support your own family but it also supports your employees, their families and contributes to the stability and growth of your community. How would your company continue to operate if a personal health issue or untimely accident occurs and prevents you from leading the company? What actions would your management team and family need to take to successfully transition leadership of the company? In this session you will:
  • Learn actions you can take to address the issue of a possible leadership gap which also represent strong business practices to help your company always be prepared for a transition.
  • Discover focus areas to consider as you develop a plan and avoid potential pitfalls.
  • Hear examples of how other business owners have dealt with these issues.
