What can I expect from the 2022 conference?
For the first time ever, PTL 2022 is hybrid – you can attend in-person or online. The program includes high-profile keynote speakers (notable thought leaders like Dave Ulrich), best-practices speakers (thought leadership professionals from organizations like McKinsey and Accenture), and structured training (for in-person attendees) from experts at Rattleback and Buday Thought Leadership Partners. The entire program will be delivered over 3 days.
How will the virtual experience be delivered?
