“Brent Robertson is one of the most interesting and innovative thinkers of our time.  For that very reason, he is asked to speak before a wide array of audiences around the country including the 2018 SHRM Regional Conference.  We are very fortunate that he could set aside the time to speak to us Monday, and you should not miss this opportunity to hear him.  To that end, we are waiving the late signup fee for this event!  Again, you will not be sorry if you attend!”                                                                                                                     --John Weidner, President ATD SCC.

Amazing Things Can Happen when You Stop Knowing What You Are Talking About

With guest speaker, 

Brent Robertson

Partner, Fathom

If our future is a world with unprecedented unpredictability, how can we rely on the tools of the past to successfully navigate it? In this talk, Brent Robertson will share how his consulting firm Fathom abandoned what they knew, and instead, applied their imagination to design a way to help their clients thrive in their future. 

Attendees will benefit by being introduced to:

• Unique ways of thinking about strategy and organizational development that open up possibility, invite ownership, and inspire action.

• Principles of practice that can help change practitioners be more effective in their work.

• Thoughts on who we need to be and what we need to provide for our clients to help them navigate the future.

About Brent:

Brent works with leaders to design futures worth fighting for. A partner at Fathom, he champions an approach to strategic planning, employee engagement, leadership succession and market differentiation that prioritizes people and relationships. As a result, his clients don’t simply plan their future, they bring them to life through the energy of organization-wide involvement in, and commitment to, generating businesses that matter. 

Brent serves on the Communications Committee of the New York chapter and Programming Committee of the Connecticut chapter of Society of Marketing Professional Services. SMPS is a national organization recognized as the premier resource for advocating, educating and connecting leaders in the professional services industry.  He is also on the Board of the University of Hartford Construction Institute.  He earned a BFA (Bachelor in Fine Arts) in Graphic Design, Ceramics, Art History, and Astronomy at the University of Hartford.

Let this eclectic and entertaining professional help you see and think in a new way!
