View the details of the General Sessions from the 2013 Summit
5:15PM – 6:00PM
Opening General Session: Bonnie Hagemann, CEO of Executive Development Associates, presenting "2013 Executive & Leadership Development Trends: A Benchmark for Your Organization"
6:00PM – 6:45PM
General Session: Kevin Cope, President & CEO Acumen Learning, presenting "Seeing the Big Picture: Business Acumen To Build Your Credibility, Career, and Company"
Our research shows that 90% of employees lack a basic understanding of important business measures. This lack of understanding results in employees who shy away from making important business decisions, employees who make uninformed business decisions, or employees who slow down the decision making process in an effort to avoid making the wrong choice. Organizations end up with people who are functionally smart (i.e. they understand their role whether it be HR, IT, Ops, etc.), but they don’t always see the big picture of how their company measures success and makes money.
In this session Kevin Cope will introduce you to a business model that will give you the confidence you need to make all of your decisions more strategic (the kinds of decisions that show up on the financials). You’ll discover the business acumen you need to build your credibility, career, and company.

General Session Keynote: Diane Gayeski, Dean and Professor of Strategic Communications, Roy H Park School of Communications and principal, Gayeski Analytics presenting "Fasten Your Seatbelts: My Students Today are Your Top Talent Tomorrow"
Recruiting, training and retaining talent is getting more challenging each year. Students in top universities are more demanding, dependent, diverse, distracted, and disabled than you may imagine, and this mandates new approaches to engage them and meet their needs. Moreover, there will be factors you need to consider to keep yourselves out of the courtroom; accommodating psychological and learning disabilities, cultural and lifestyle differences, and their 24x7 information and socializing needs is no easy feat. Allow me give you an insight into my world -- and glimpse into your own future.
