Talent: An Essential Priority | Cincinnati

Hosted in Cincinnati Tuesday, March 26, 2019 7:30 a.m. - 11:45 a.m. PST

Event Overview

Talent. Growth. Hiring. If they’re keeping you up at night — you’re not alone. 87 percent of CEOs count talent as their No. 1 challenge.

Although most (72 percent) plan to increase hiring, and expect fierce competition, the National Center for the Middle Market reports: 44 percent cannot find candidates with the skills they need. It’s time to get creative.

Now more than ever, CEOs face critical decisions and are making strategic investments that determine their fate and fortune. It’s time to think smarter. The strengthened ability to hire, retain, engage and manage talent — as an integral part of your business strategy — will give your organization a competitive edge.

Join us for this half-day event featuring proven insights from thought leaders Joe Galvin, Chief Research Officer of Vistage Worldwide, Inc.; Tom Cox, President of Oliver Group; and Tom Gilman, Managing Partner and CEO of Gilman Partners. Leave prepared to make talent a strategic focus for growing a successful, competitive business. The time is now.
