Before Staffing World officially kicks off, explore preconvention sessions to advance your knowledge even further. Choose from one of three learning paths for your customized preconvention experience:
- Growth Strategies for Staffing Companies up to $50 Million in Revenue
- Discover New Revenue: Build or Expand a Direct Hire Business
- Advancing Women Leaders in the Staffing Industry
Only the Tuesday Basic Pass includes a preconvention program; separate registration is required for all other pass options.
Start your Growth Strategies session with Business Roundtable Introductions. Be prepared to talk about your company and discuss your most surprising marketplace trends. Move on to Ten Traits of Companies Accelerating From Emerging to Fast-Growing and discover the characteristics of companies that have fast and sustainable growth. Next, learn all about cash flows in Advanced Cash Flow Management for Staffing Company Executives. In Make Your Strategy a Reality, learn to communicate your growth strategies in a way that engages the hearts and minds of your teams and increases your odds of success. Finish off your sessions with Top Compliance Issue Highlights, where you will find out about employment law matters affecting your staffing company’s growth potential.
In the Discover New Revenue track, learn how to take your direct hire business to the next level. Hear from successful direct hire experts about strategies and techniques for building a direct hire business—finding candidates, capturing direct hire business from current clients, making placements, and more. Whether you want to start or expand your direct hire business, you will not want to miss this captivating preconvention session.
Advancing Women is the only Staffing World session that’s exclusively by women and for women, and it’s an opportunity to meet and re-connect with women leaders to expand your business network, while also strengthening the voice and influence of women in staffing. The first session, Build Confidence and Your Personal Brand, helps you navigate through limiting beliefs so you can add value to your own voice. You can then attend a Speed Networking and Mentoring event to expand your professional connections.
Choose from two sessions from 11 a.m. to noon: The Sponsorship Effect or Inclusive Communication and Courageous Conversations. The Sponsorship Effect teaches you the difference between a coach, mentor, and sponsor, as well as strategies for positioning yourself to be both mentored and sponsored within your organization. Inclusive Communication and Courageous Conversations will help you communicate authentically across differences, such as beliefs, attitudes, and experiences. Afterward, attend a networking lunch. End your preconvention with Executive Reflections: Looking Back to Propel Forward, a session led by female staffing leaders. They will discuss their journey to the c-suite, including personal stories of overcoming fear, recovering from failure, and turning around any signs of self-doubt.
Whichever path you choose, you’re sure to get the most out of Staffing World by attending an engaging preconvention session.
