What CEOs Want From HR
*Approved for 1 Hour of Business Credit*
The head of HR is frequently seen as the low man (or woman) on the Executive totem pole, at least in the eyes of the CEO. Why is that when people is the largest cost item on every company’s budget and CEOs consistently list talent as the top concern? How can HR leaders reverse this image and make themselves invaluable to the CEO and the business?
It’s time for HR leaders to assume their seats at the C-suite, but that will require a transition from focusing on administration to driving strategy and business outcomes. The combination of functional HR know-how and a strategic mindset is critical. It requires that HR leaders speak business first, HR second.
Join us as Joel Trammell, a seasoned entrepreneur and CEO, shares five imperatives that create alignment between HR and C-suite executives. In this thought-provoking presentation, you will discover the strategies needed to excel in:
· HR’s role in owning the vision of the organization
· HR’s role in securing opportunity-driven human capital
· HR’s role in making strategic decisions for organizational growth
· HR’s role in delivering performance that meets business goals
Don’t miss this presentation—you’ll be glad you made it a priority!
Be bold, be brave and invite your CEO to attend. It could change everything.

Keynote Speaker, Joel Trammell
Some boys dream of being a doctor or a fireman or an astronaut, but Joel Trammell always wanted to be a CEO. He’s lived out that dream for more than 20 years as a successful entrepreneur and CEO of software companies. He is currently CEO of Khorus, which provides a business management system for CEOs.
Joel is also chairman of the Austin Technology Council and cofounder and managing partner of the private equity firm Lone Rock Technology Group. In addition, he serves on the boards of several public, private, and nonprofit companies. Joel blogs at The American CEO.
Joel’s leadership as a CEO has resulted in successful nine-figure acquisitions by two Fortune 500 companies. As CEO of the network management software firm NetQoS, he delivered 31 consecutive quarters of double-digit revenue growth and nearly $60 million in revenue. CA Technologies acquired the company in 2009, generating more than a 10x return on capital to its private equity investors. In 2010, Joel cofounded Cache IQ, a storage software company that NetApp acquired two years later.
