#TorontoHR Meetup: How to Speak CEO | TemboStatusI am delighted that the monthly #TorontoHR meetup series is able to bring back one of the best events I've ever been a part of presenting - Mary Ann Dunlop's How To Speak CEO

Whether you have 10 employees or 10,000, people are the foundation of any organization’s success. People and talent issues are ever changing and arguably the most important issues in organizational leadership today. In the last 10 years we’ve seen a shift in the nature of knowledge work, the challenges in attracting and retaining talent and the role of HR within the social enterprise. HR has moved from a largely tactical, administrative function - managing time, compliance and risk - to a more strategic role focused on creating value for the business.

And yet, before the Human Resources Business Partner is fully welcomed as an equal party at the senior leadership table, there’s a major hurdle; a discrepancy between what the CEO cares about and the function of human resources within the organization.

On Wednesday, March 22, Mary Ann Dunlop will offer a tactical, practical guide to aligning organizational vision with an enterprise talent management strategy. Mary Ann will demonstrate how a combination of business acumen and a solution-centric outlook are critical to driving impact on the big things that keep your CEO up at night: Customers, Productivity, Succession and Profit.
