When Indeed and LinkedIn are Not Enough – Finding the Talent You Need When You Need It

Sponsor, Sara Shelton with Fahrenheit Advisors

Job seekers are out there, but do you know how to find them? This quick presentation will illuminate a method outside of the traditional LinkedIn and Indeed approach.

Avoid Calcification

Member, Henry Clifford, Founder & CEO of Livewire

We all reach a point where we start using the rear view mirror more than the windshield in our lives. It could be anything; music tastes, instincts for business decisions or what to eat for dinner. As CEOs, calcification is a cancer we must actively work to avoid. Doing what we’ve always done will get us where we’ve always gotten. Only by intentionally working each day to break out of our ruts can we instill a culture of “always learning in all things” for ourselves.

Rewarding Employees with Equity

Sponsor, Gary Wallace with Keiter

Think outside the box. Consider rewarding your employees with equity. Here’s the why and how.

April 29, 3:30 PM – 4:30 PM

How Leaders Can Change What to Say to Get Stronger Result

Sponsor, Danessa Knaupp with Avenue 8

Leaders aren’t making clear requests. Covered: barriers to communication, the components of clear speech, and a checklist leaders can use to ensure their teams hear them and move to action.
