CPP– The Myers-Briggs® Company announces PeopleFWD 2018, a premiere event for HR professionals and the business leaders that work alongside them. Taking place October 17-18, 2018 in the San Francisco Bay Area, the conference will feature opening keynote speaker Patty McCord along with a host of inspiring people development and industry experts, including:

Attendees will learn about organizational trends from experts on the front lines of business transformation and be free to choose from three tracks of rich content: Engage and Develop (for HR professionals), Develop and Perform (for Line-of-Business managers) and Perform and Transform (for Senior Business Leaders).
