Wine & Cheese Roundtable

A trademark of the PLS Talent Management Strategies Workshop is our evening Cracker Barrel roundtable exchange after day one from 5:30 – 7:30PM.

The session is designed to hear how other participants are addressing challenges with talent management and succession planning programs or what issues they would like to learn more about.

The program speakers will be in attendance to add their input, making this a robust exchange about what’s working in the trenches of talent management.

Please plan to join us for soft drinks, wine, cheese, and a host of appetizers and desserts.

A few weeks prior to the conference, you’ll be sent a short questionnaire to help us identify your interests or concerns. This will help us structure the round table topic areas.
