2020 Ohio HR Conference Update

Conference is Still Scheduled for September 22-24, 2020 (UPDATE as of 6/15/2020)

The MAIN question from 2020 Ohio HR Conference attendees is - "Will there be a 2020 Ohio HR Conference?"

The answer is - YES!

Our top priority for the 2020 Ohio HR Conference remains the safety and health of our attendees. We will continue to rely on expert guidance and directives from public health experts. At this time the 2020 Ohio HR Conference is still scheduled for September 22-24, 2020. It may be a live, on-site conference at the Columbus Convention Center, a virtual conference - or a hybrid.

Most importantly, we will have the conference in September.

Please be patient as we work through the numerous details as we finalize this decision. We will continue to update attendees directly and to the HR Community via email, Social Media and our website.

Laura Huang

Creating an Edge: Making Your Hard Work Work Harder for You

Wednesday, September 21, 2020, 10:15am - 11:45am

What is "edge"? If you are lucky enough to have it, you are endowed with a unique advantage. You execute faster, are confident, have experience, seem to have an established network, and so naturally positioned that others want to help you move forward. In this keynote, Laura Huang will teach you what you can do if you don't have that natural edge by recognizing your own advantages and using your strengths, but also your adversity, hardship, and biases to work in your favor.

Steve Cadigan

COVID-19 and The Future of Work

Wednesday, September 21, 2020, 4:00pm - 5:15pm

COVID-19 has caused dramatic changes across the globe, and many of us have been forced to learn new ways of working, commmunicating, and performing. In this keynote, Steve Cardigan will discuss how COVID-19 has accelerated the future of work, why now is a great time to innovate, and how history has shown us that in times of massive change and even anxiety, greatness can be born.
