First Speakers of the i4cp 2016 Conference Announced

Three dynamic speakers--a current head of HR, a former Chief HR Officer, and a world-renowned thought leader--have joined the agenda of the i4cp 2016 Conference, March 29 – April 1, 2016.

With a theme of Next Practices Now, the i4cp 2016 Conference is poised at the brink of what's possible: looking ahead to what the future brings, while laser-focused on the people practices that drive market performance now. Closed to vendors and consultants, the conference brings HR, talent, and learning leaders together to learn, discuss, and collaborate. Join us to discover the next practices you can implement now to beat your competition in the years ahead.

To guide this discovery process, we've enlisted the help of three cutting-edge speakers (more will be announced soon):

Pat Wadors - LinkedIn

Pat Wadors leads LinkedIn's world-class talent (HR) team. In addition to hiring, retaining and inspiring top talent, Pat is responsible for all employee-related HR programs at LinkedIn, including compensation and benefits and performance management.

Wadors' presentation, Making HR Sexy, will cover all of the current innovative programs and initiatives underway at LinkedIn that show the business that they are true strategic partners--and that the HR function is doing really cool stuff.

John Boudreau - University of Southern California

John Boudreau is recognized for breakthrough research on human capital, talent, and sustainable competitive advantage.

As a key contributor to i4cp's research into the changing dynamic of the employer/employee relationship--in which we interviewed nearly 100 chief HR officers on the future of work--Boudreau will expand on insights discussed in his just-released book Lead the Work, which provides a detailed look at the evolution of employment and its far-reaching implications.

Joe Ruocco - formerly of The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company

Joe Ruocco is the former Chief Human Resources Officer for The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, a position he held for seven years following a long and successful career with GE. Under Joe's leadership at Goodyear, the percentage of "ready-now successors" for the top positions at the company more than tripled as a direct result of the implementation and execution of a world-class global talent management and leadership development process.

At the conference, Ruocco will dive into the seven key attributes that made this process successful, leading to the recognition of Goodyear on AON Hewitt's 2014 list of Top Companies for Leaders.

The i4cp 2016 Conference is only seven months away--sign up by September 30 to save a whopping $500 off the standard rate.
