Amazing Talent Is Grown, Not Born. Learn How.

Friday, March 11
5:00PM - 6:00PM

JW Marriott
Salon 7
110 E 2nd St


Want to succeed in your career? You’ll need to be good at more than one thing. Gurus used to celebrate the T-shaped leader - deep in one area, broad but shallow in others. Things have changed. Today, individuals who combine technical depth, business acumen, creative flair, and the ability to inspire and lead others are needed at all levels. Smart Creative, Marketing Technologist, Digital Strategist, Data Scientist – these unicorns have many labels and fill diverse roles. While hard to find, it’s a myth that these superstars can’t be grown. Talent development is changing: the keys to success lie in breaking discipline silos and worn expectations of ourselves and the places we work.
