SAVE THE DATE: March 6-7, 2018

Last year's 4A's Talent@2030 brought together 250 Talent and HR leaders, along with top C-suite agency and client-side executives, who offered candid perspectives about the significant impact that technology, social media and data have had on people and culture. The event culminated with a dynamic Master Class on unconscious bias that left our attendees with new insights about what it really takes to build sustainable, inclusive people and culture practices.

Mark your calendars now and plan to attend this September's 4A's Talent@2030. This year is sure to be an even stronger talent community and knowledge building event for the industry! The agency-focused agenda will present best practices in talent retention that enable the future through innovative engagement and development strategies.
