CAHRS Bonus Session at Human Resource Executive Forum® Gives Insider's View of Becoming a Chief HR Officer

April 12, New York City

The Center for Advanced Human Resource Studies (CAHRS) is proud to present a bonus session for attendees of the Human Resource Executive Forum® to learn how to prepare for becoming a modern senior HR leader. The session, Becoming a Chief HR Officer: How to Get There and What You'll Need to Succeed, takes place April 12, 2010, from 4:00 to 5:30 PM, immediately followed by the HR Week™ Welcome and Networking Reception.

Patrick M. Wright, the William J. Conaty GE Professor of Strategic Human Resources at Cornell University’s ILR School and former CAHRS director, will review his new research on the transformed CHRO role and discuss with panelists what CEOs today really want in their HR leaders; what’s lacking in the talent pool; and how one unique CAHRS development program is helping HR executives close any gaps and succeed at the next level.

This intimate expert panel includes:

  • James (Jim) M. Bagley, Global Leader, Corporate Officers Sector, Russell Reynolds Associates,
  • Ken Carrig, Executive Vice President of Human Resources, Comcast Cable
  • Kevin Barr, Senior Vice President of Human Resources, Terex Corporation.

The Human Resource Executive Forum®, produced by Human Resource Executive® Magazine and taking place at the Hilton New York, April 12-14, 2010, examines today's most critical business and HR issues—including benefits, recruitment, leadership, talent management, workforce planning and technology—through the voice of senior HR executives.
