What's keeping business leaders up at night? What are the challenges and opportunities for their companies? This cross-industry panel of Senior Leaders will share their perspectives.

As HR professionals, we focus on the human side of business, identifying and driving HR initiatives. But, are we speaking the language of the business and are we aligned with the strategic priorities of the line?

In this interactive program, we'll look at the world through the lens of the line leader. What's keeping business leaders up at night? What are the challenges they face and the opportunities they are seizing?

Our cross-industry panel of Executives will share their perspectives on the business landscape within their industries, the hot topics they are focused on for their companies, and their expectations of their HR partners.
