December 4 – December 5, 20012001 Career Management Conference: Putting TalentFirst!Toronto

People power in the most literal sense has arrived in today’s organization. What organizations have found they can really take to the bank is the ability of their people to think, innovate, communicate and deliver customized solutions to a global marketplace that gets smaller and spins faster every day.

Today’s news about talent poses more interesting and complex challenges. How do you separate star players from star potential? Who can afford the latter in a tough market? How do you convert all that latent potential you suspect is there into real performance? A rather substantial body of research by the Gallup Organization reveals that 80 per cent of employees everywhere in the world do not feel that their job provides them with the opportunity to use their talents on a daily basis. Imagine the hidden opportunity just waiting for organizations that figure out how to put the talents of even 30 per cent or 40 per cent of their people into active play!

Such is the food for thought for the 2001 Career Management Conference: Putting Talent First. The conference will bring together the most current thinking and best practices that enable an organization to maximize and realize the best of its talent pool. You will have an opportunity to debate the issues. Leave this event with practical resources and tools that will strengthen your talent pool.
