How do you expand your perspective and get the recognition you deserve? The answers lie in taking control of your own career. This session will focus on what you need to do to be the strategic executive who is action-oriented and embraces technology to drive your strategic plan forward. This session is designed to empower you to integrate HR with the rest of the organization – and give you the voice to take your career anywhere you want to go!
