The CEO Talent Summit

Secrets to Attracting, Retaining, and Rewarding Great People

A CEO to CEO Interactive Event

Ever wish you could find out what your fellow CEOs are doing to hire top talent and then get them to perform?

Well, here’s your chance.

VisionLink has invited three successful chief executives to participate in an online forum and talk about their approach to recruiting, retention, and rewards in the “New Economy.” In this interactive event, you will learn how your peers create an irresistible value proposition, provide a superior employee experience, and frame an effective financial partnership with their people.

The first half of this broadcast will be an interview of the panelists by a moderator. The second half will be a Q&A with forum attendees where you can ask the business leaders whatever is on your mind.

If you lead a company, you will not want to miss this broadcast.
