Oct 15 - HDI WCNY Leadership Conference

We are excited to announce that the 8th Annual Western and Central NY HDI Leadership Conference will be held on Thursday, October 15, 2015 at Hobart and William Smith Colleges!  


This event is a great place to meet local IT professionals that are grappling with and solving many of the same issues as you. It focuses on leadership and recharging your battery! Be the best leader you can be. Remember, leadership is more than a title. Anyone can be a leader!


This year our topic will focus on Career Planning and Development.  Given this topic we could think of no better keynote speaker than Kirk Weisler, our good friend and favorite Chief Morale Officer!  Kirk has spoken at our conference on several occasions, with each time being more insightful, more thought provoking, and more fun than the last.

Kirk’s address is called "Human Beings vs. Human Becomings: What You Need to Know to Stay in the Grow, and a Plan to Get You There".  His material will not only help you with your own career, but will help you to become the career coach every employee wishes they had. 

Here’s a bit about Kirk, from his website (http://kirkweisler.com):

With over eighteen years of executive coaching, speaking, research, and professional experience, Kirk’s perspective is simple and unpretentious and his suggestions are applicable and undiluted. Kirk understands that your work life is more than a commute and a paycheck. You will spend most of your conscious week at work, thinking about work, or driving to work. Therefore Kirk believes in seeing your work life as your life’s work (outside of your home and family). With that in mind, how can you make your life’s work more meaningful, fulfilling, and rewarding?


The event will include a keynote address from Kirk, a second speaker, and a panel discussion all related to career planning and development.  Details and a full agenda will follow.
