2019 Annual CEB Conference

73rd Annual CEB Conference

Please plan to join us at the 2019 CEB Annual Conference in Nashville, TN – Music City.  The Omni Nashville will be the site for the 73rd conference and the Planning Committee has once again put an exciting program together.  As always, the CEB Annual Conference is for CEB member companies only.

Here’s a quick look at what we have planned:

  • Keynote Speaker: Francesca Gino, Tandon Family Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School
  • General Session on Wednesday morning – CEB in Action: Making a Difference Together
    An interactive session where we will put the spotlight on what you will have told us are the biggest challenges you and your organization are facing for the future.
  • Thirteen great workshops
  • A unique community outreach event to give something back to the military and first responders suffering from PTSD

Space in each of the sessions is limited, by design, to facilitate in-depth discussions in an informal setting, and to maximize the valuable networking opportunities CEB benefits professionals enjoy during the sessions.
