For the past two days, I have been participating at the Senior HR Executive Conference hosted by The Conference Board. This conference is viewed in the HR community as one of the top conferences for HR executives to attend. The speakers are some of the brightest HR leaders from top companies in the US (Humana, Inc., General Electric Corporation, , The Boeing Company, PwC, Xerox, Corning, and Unilever, to name a few) and the content is top notch. For more information on the conference and The Conference Board, please click on this link https://www.conference-board.org/conferences/conference.cfm?id=1980.
There are several HR bloggers in attendance and I encourage you to read their accounts as they are posted. Bloggers include Steve Boese, Laurie Ruettimann, and Frank Roche. We are excited to be assisting The Conference Board with incorporating social media into the conference experience for future events. We are also advising on how future conferences can begin to incorporate Gen X or Gen Y participants.
I will be posting conference content later today. In the meantime I have three questions for you:
- Are you familiar with The Conference Board and this conference in particular?
- Is this a conference you aspire to attend? Why or why not?
- What generation are you part of?
Please respond in the comments. I will share them with The Conference Board to help guide how future conferences will be planned. Now is your opportunity to help shape the future of HR conferences.
trish, sounds like a great opportunity. lucky you!

Hi Trish, looking forward to reading more on the conference, the speaker panel was pretty impressive. To answer your questions, yes, I am aware of the Conference Board and was aware of the conference, I am interested in attending a Conference Board event because of their reputation and if Gen X is the old one, that’s me!
I am aware of the Conf Board but not this event.
I would like to attend some Conf Board event in the future.
I am the Gen X – just barely.
@Fran, Lisa, and Ann- Thank you all for your feedback. I know that the Conference Board will be glad to hear it. I think it’s exciting to bring the next generation of professionals into the mix and to incorporate social media as well. So glad you all commented. Thanks.
