Many companies and charitable organizations host events as a strategy for audience engagement. There are a variety of events, from the awards event honoring people or recognizing skills to the networking mixer, from the professional development event such as conferences or speakers to the educational program, from the prospect building trade shows to the ribbon-cutting ceremonies for a new endeavor.
The Governor’s Conference on Business will host a Business Pitch Competition for startup companies to showcase their innovative product or service. The winning companies will be awarded a cash and professional services prize package totaling $31,600 at the conference luncheon. Nevada-based startups in operation for two years or less with annual gross revenues less than $250,000 from any industry should apply by 8:00 am on June 26.
Spending time at an industry conference is always a good way to focus on your business by meeting people that share the same challenges and by learning about best practices and technologies you can leverage. To take full advantage of these types of opportunities, a little preparation and strategy will insure your time spent is successful.
Now more than ever, we and our employees—team members or cast members if you prefer—cannot afford to sit still with regard to our professional learning. The good news is that we are fortunate to live at a time that affords unprecedented opportunities to learn and grow. Our teams’ skills and connections represent strategic assets worth investing in. This investment increases competence, moral and retention. Learning is not something that stops when we leave the formal educational setting. We should cherish people who value life-long learning.
The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) held their national convention in Las Vegas from June 28 to July 1. In the HR world, staying informed on the every changing landscape is crucial. I attended and served as a volunteer seeing the inner workings of a conference hosting over 15,000 people.
