Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) October 15, 2005
The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a think tank and association focused on talent management strategies, and The Berkeley Center for Executive Development (CED) at the Haas School of Business, University of California, Berkeley, will jointly host a human capital education and networking event for the San Francisco area business community on November 1, 2005.
"We're excited about partnering with CED to present our Human Capital Leadership Series," said Allan Schweyer, HCI's Executive Director. "The Center for Executive Development is a great fit for HCI; both organizations are dedicated to providing forward-thinking education, research and experience to help individuals and businesses be successful in today's knowledge economy."
The complimentary event on November 1 will begin with a networking session and continental breakfast, followed by a presentation by Dr. Philippe Baumard, a visiting professor at the Haas School of Business,on "Leveraging Human Talents in the Demand Innovation Process." This is an important topic for any company facing slower growth. Revitalizing product growth through demand innovation requires a specific talent program that focuses on creativity, peripheral thinking, "thinking outside of the box," and other skills Dr. Baumard will relate.
The Center for Executive Development is constantly looking for innovative and unique ways to offer rich education and programs to top-level executives and companies. Working with HCI to present the Human Capital Leadership session is an example of CED's commitment to bringing the latest research, strategies and tools to leaders across business, academia, government and consulting.
This complimentary event is open to the public, however seating is limited. Interested parties may register in advance by calling toll free, 866-538-1909 or online at http://www.humancapitalinstitute.org.
