Bant Breen, Founder and CEO of Qnary, adds, “We were a proud sponsor of BRAND U Events in 2014-2015 and it feels like a positive natural extension to expand the relationship in 2016 as we assist executives to move their careers to the next level.”

The pioneering talent accelerator event series BRAND U Events, which provides leadership training for high-potential mid-level brand marketers at Fortune 500 companies and agencies, today announced it will accelerate its growth in 2016 via a joint-venture between its parent company High Potential Ventures LLC and leading executive reputation growth company Qnary.

The first event of 2016 is scheduled for February 24 and 25 in New York City.

New research released by Deloitte reveals that two-thirds of millennials plan to leave their current organization by 2020 due to insufficient opportunities to develop their leadership skills, highlighting the need for organizations to proactively grow talent through intrapreneurship. High Potential Ventures’ founder, Karen Salama launched Brand U Events in October 2014 to address this challenge by delivering leadership training for high-potential brand marketers to Fortune 500 companies and agencies.

“Talent is one of our most valuable assets in today's competitive landscape. If we, as organizations, don't take the time to invest in their future, support their growth and challenge them to think bigger, they will leave and with that, our organizations will lose.” says Karen Salama, Founder and CEO of BRAND U Events.

By combining BRAND U Events unique curriculum with the technology and infrastructure of Qnary, this new joint venture will increase the number of annual events, expand the geographic footprint, and offer in-house custom events to companies seeking innovation for their learning and development programs.

Bant Breen, Founder and CEO of Qnary, adds, “We were a proud sponsor of BRAND U Events in 2014-2015 and it feels like a positive natural extension to expand the relationship in 2016 as we assist executives to move their careers to the next level.”
