This year, our conference is truly special. We have weathered a tremendous storm, and this conference provides a time and space to regroup and refocus on ourselves. We come together to support each other, learn from each other, and gain new insights and knowledge we can apply towards creating our future. You will have the opportunity to network and share stories of resiliency with your peers and learn from industry experts via the breakout sessions and the Expo sponsors and vendors. These opportunities will provide an outstanding experience for you. We are excited to have Bob Pike as our Keynote Speaker. Bob is a thought leader and guru in the talent develop- ment industry, and his “Power of One” keynote will provide us with guidance for what each of us can do to support and grow ourselves and others. We also have a wonderful, knowledgeable group of breakout speakers, each ready to deliver an outstanding session, all focused on ways we can create our future, for ourselves and our com- panies.
Many hours of diligent planning and preparation have been spent on this conference. I want to thank each volun- teer, leader, and speaker who have given of themselves to meet the needs of our ATD members and guests. I also want to thank our sponsors and vendors, whose financial support ensures events like these are possible. I also want to thank the Boy Scouts of America for the use of their facility and associated support.
We hope you enjoy your day and consider a membership in ATD Houston if you are not already a member. Join us and learn, grow and network to greater success.Thank you for attending today, and enjoy the conference
