For small to mid-market companies, the continual and urgent need to find, attract,
hire, and retain the right people can be their biggest barrier to innovation
and business growth.

To succeed, basic approaches to people practices are no longer enough. What’s
needed is a transformational approach to become talent competitive and able
to win. Based on Doris Bentley’s new book Basic to Brilliant, this presentation
explores how talent innovation can be the difference maker in a constantly
changing and unpredictable environment.
Key take-aways:

•    The winning strategies for aligning your organization to ensure the right
     people are attracted, hired, and get up to speed quickly.
•    Some brilliant and agile approaches that set people up for new levels of
     performance and real-time learning and development.
•    The essentials to cultivate a values-based culture and total rewards
     philosophy that engages people over the long term.

Through examples of brilliance shown by representative British Columbia small
to mid-market companies, leaders will learn how to truly advance the innovation
agenda: accelerating business performance through their people.
