Human Capital Institute and Camden Consulting Group Announce Talent Management Forum for Greater Boston

The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a global professional association and think tank that is advancing the science of strategic talent management, and leading talent management solutions provider Camden Consulting Group today announced the Talent Management Forum for Greater Boston, an event created to help organizations better understand and improve the region's talent market.

The event, to take place Monday, June 15, 2009 from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Millennium Bostonian Hotel, will convene national and regional leaders to discuss regional talent branding and to review HCI's Boston Talent Markets Index study. Regional employers in attendance can convey priorities and collaborate with leaders across business, government and academia to drive talent competitiveness in the region.

Keynote speaker, Stephen Pagliuca, Managing Partner and Executive Committee Member of the Boston Celtics, will explain how the Boston Celtics and Bain Capital have embraced and practiced talent management to gain a competitive advantage and create success in their very different arenas. He will also describe the common challenges organizations face today, whether they are in the world of high finance or professional sports, including the common threads in assembling, motivating and retaining talent.

Additional speakers include Lisa Block, Chief Talent Officer, State Street Corp.; Riet Grond, Global Head Talent Management, Novartis; Thomas Murray, Head of Executive Recruiting, EMC; and Daniel Sonsino, Talent and Succession Management, Raytheon. Susan Miele, Senior Partner at Camden Consulting, will moderate a panel discussion on the Greater Boston Talent Market, and Allan Schweyer, HCI's Executive Director and Senior Vice President-Research, will lead a discussion on Building the Greater Boston Talent Brand. Michael Noble, Managing Director of Camden Consulting Group, will be master of ceremonies.

"In the face of rapidly increasing global competition and shifting talent supplies, the pivotal determinant of a region's future is fast becoming the depth and quality of its workforce," said Schweyer. "We encourage attendees to bring their leadership, human resources, organizational design, strategic planning and top marketing and branding executives to participate in this key learning and networking event."
