With that being said, I am proud to report that the list of attendees looks like a who’s who of leading organizations. 80 percent hold manager level or above positions and 86 percent are from companies with 1,000 or more employees. It’s a great list and if you aren’t on it yet, you should be. Take a look at a few of the titles and the companies who are attending.

You’ve probably been to a conference and left wanting more — wanting to delve deeper into a topic that was just touched upon. If so, the “Think Tanks” which are part of the April ERE conference in San Diego, is for you.
