Up Your Game: Training Camp Speakers Will Stretch Your Thinking

by Addie Linn | Jan 21, 2019

If you aren’t already registered for TeamKC Training Camp 2019, now is the time! Here’s a quick look at the full lineup for KC’s second annual talent leadership summit.

Keynote Speaker Lucy Adams, CEO, Disruptive HR
Turn Your Existing Ideas on Their Heads
Lucy plays it straight: HR has lost its way and needs to find a new direction. We have to change – and change radically – if we’re going to survive and thrive on this new playing field.

Lucy’s the former director of HR for BBC, the world’s oldest and largest national broadcasting organization. But her message today is the opposite of “established.” She’s challenging HR leaders to throw out old models and start over again with a whole new strategy that treats people as human beings – not assets, as adults – not children, and as customers – not employees.

Billy Brimblecom, Executive Director, Steps of Faith Foundation
Be Inspired to Move Mountains
If you need a pep talk, Billy is your guy. The professional musician lost his leg to Ewing sarcoma in 2005, putting his whole future on the line. Friends and acquaintances from across the world helped raise funds to cover his first prosthesis and other medical costs. That experience inspired him to create Steps of Faith, dedicated to helping uninsured and underinsured amputees get the prostheses they need to live full and meaningful lives. Billy Brimblecom will share insight on how the power of personal passion can successfully impact your leadership and the opportunity to drive positive change for those around you.

Ronnie Washington, Founder and CEO, Onward Financial, Inc.
Dig in to Financial Wellness
You already know financial well-being is a hot trend in employee benefits but have you been standing on the sidelines? It’s time to get in on the game and understand the situation from an employee perspective. Ronnie’s mission is to provide every worker with a financial cushion – a dire need in a country where fewer than 40% of people have the cash on hand to handle a $400 emergency expense. A recent recipient of the $1 million Chan Zuckerberg Initiative grant, Ronnie knows his stuff..

In addition to conversations with these remarkable speakers, you’ll have plenty of time to network and collaborate with other talent acquisition leaders, HR executives and community partners – all in the energy-inspiring Club Level at Arrowhead Stadium. 

We couldn’t be more excited about our TeamKC Training Camp speaker lineup and the tremendous interest we are seeing in our second annual event. We’re looking forward to hosting you and 450+ of your closest colleagues Friday, February 8. Register now, or learn more about sponsorship opportunities here.
