Description: Rob Kalwarowsky and Susan Hobson specialize in building high-impact leaders who turn teams and individuals into happy, high performers that achieve their goals.

9:30 am CT Finding and Retaining Talent with Alex Chausovsky
Description: The war for talent is escalating. Some organizations are ill-prepared to handle the challenges of an increasingly complex labor market, shackled by the “we’ve always done it this way” mentality. Others are thriving, armed with analytical insights and surrounded by allies, allowing them to snap up and retain highly performing impact players and supercharge their growth. What kind of an organization are you? More importantly, what kind do you want to be in the future? This presentation will deliver key insights designed to help business leaders and decision-makers elevate their talent-focused activities.
