the cartoon hero of the workplace
(PRWEB) January 13, 2007
Scott Adams, world-famous cartoonist, is scheduled to kick off the WorldatWork Total Rewards Conference to be held May 6-9, 2007 in Orlando, FL. Adams is best known as the creator of Dilbert, one of the most famous comic strips in the world. Dubbed "the cartoon hero of the workplace" by The San Francisco Examiner, Dilbert has been syndicated since 1989 and now appears in 2,000 newspapers in 65 countries and 25 languages.
In the opening session, Adams will use his unique brand of irreverence to describe his strange journey from corporate cubicles to the comic pages, share the comics that got him in the most trouble, and keep the audience laughing with his workplace insights and tips for success.
The closing keynote is to be given by Mary O'Hara-Devereaux, Ph.D., founder and president of Global Foresight. Dr. O'Hara-Devereaux is an internationally known futurist and the author of several books including her latest, Navigating the Badlands: Thriving in This Decade of Radical Transformation. Dr. O'Hara-Devereaux will discuss powerful trends shaping a radically new landscape of work.
The WorldatWork Total Rewards conference is being held at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, FL. It will highlight the latest trends in compensation, benefits and employee rewards. Leaders from companies such as Citigroup, Motorola, General Mills, Boeing Co., General Motors, IBM Corp. and American Express Co. will be speaking.
