Brooklyn, NY – June 24, 2013 - The Human Capital Institute (HCI) announced today the speakers and sponsors for its first annual Global Talent Management Summit in New York City. The Summit, taking place at the Conrad New York on July 22-23, is a direct response to the increasingly globalized nature of business today. Leaders in 2013 must contend with a highly competitive talent market, critical gaps in the leadership pipeline, and an international, multicultural workforce with their own candidate behaviors and social codes.
Based on the high unemployment of many emerging economies, as well as the shortage of talent and an increasingly networked business environment, HCI anticipated the need for an event to address the globalized nature of today’s business. The HCI Global Talent Management Summit will not only present new strategies for global workforce planning and leadership development, but also help attendees stand out with employer branding, understand their workforce’s culture, and create development plans built around the international talent pipeline. Over the course of two days, attendees will attend presentations, engage in peer-to-peer networking, and leave with a collection of actionable strategies and new partnerships.
HCI has assembled some of the world’s foremost experts on the emerging global business climate, including: Michael Ehret, VP of Leadership Development & Learning at Johnson & Johnson; Maude DiVittis, VP of Global People and Organizational Development for Coach International; Allan H. Church, Ph.D., VP of Talent and Organization & Management Development for PepsiCo, Inc.; Tracey Smith, former Global Business Strategist: Strategic HR, Workforce Planning & Analytics for FedEx Corporation; Dr. Zahir Uddin, Head of Targeted Leadership Development Programs Group, Leadership Development Center for Saudi Aramco; Cynthia Kolodzinski, Director of Global Training for Novo Nordisk Inc.; Jennie Walker, Ph.D., Director of Global Learning and Market Development, Najafi Global Mindset Institute at Thunderbird School of Global Management; Pedro Videla, Ph.D., Professor of Economics for IESE Business School; John Ludike, Vice President, HR and Head of Talent Management for Emirates Telecommunications Corp.; Nicole Guiet, Director of Talent Acquisition for CH2M HILL; Ed Rankin, Leader of Learning & Development at CompuCom Systems; Dr. Kristen Hanson, Senior Director & Head for Global Organization and Talent Development for Oracle; Mark Ruth, Director of Research & Education for International Coach Federation (ICF); Kristen Leverone, SVP and Global Talent Development Practice Leader at Lee Hecht Harrison; Greg Simpson, SVP and Career Transition Practice Leader for Lee Hecht Harrison; and Tom Gaffney, Senior business Development Associate for Center for Creative Leadership.
