So often in my career, I see opportunities come and go and people make all kinds of excuses as to why they can’t embrace them. I’ve found that the more I say “yes” or “I will make this happen somehow”, the more I progress in my career. One of those game-changing moments came last December when I attended the Senior HR Executive conference in New York City. I knew that being able to surround myself with CEO’s, CHRO’s, and other business executives would only help me learn and network. I made some great connections and now, just one year later, I have used many of the things I learned at that conference to change my life.
So, now’s your chance.
The Senior HR Executive conference, hosted by The Conference Board, will be November 30- December 1, 2010. And, if you use code TM1, you can save $500 off your registration fee.
