As talent managers, our goal is for our companies to manage their talent assets as carefully as they manage their balance sheets. We set our own agendas, conduct surveys and do a variety of other activities designed to maximize the sharing of best practices and exchange of ideas. We focus both on longer-term strategic issues as well as shorter-term more immediate issues of prime interest to our members.

Enduring relationships with trusted peers are the core of the Council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the value of Council membership. Confidential peer dialogue provides you with a broader perspective and shared experiences, as well as access to specific knowledge and best practices.

The Council offers a unique opportunity to have open, candid conversations with peers from numerous industries. I take home more gems from a single council meeting than I do from several conferences. More importantly, these gems have a person that I can call to explore the learning at a deeper level.
