    Title: “Yeah but…” – Why the Roanoke Valley is different and what to do about it.

    How many times have you heard a great speaker or read a fantastic book, but then heard the voice in your head say – “Yeah, but Roanoke is different!”  If so, then this program is for you.

    During this 60-minute session you will learn about challenges unique to the Roanoke Valley and provide best practices at overcoming them.  Come participate in a facilitated conversation with your colleagues to discuss the specific challenges facing your businesses.  By selecting break-out sessions that are of greatest importance to you, everyone is sure to walk away with actionable strategies that you have proven to work in the Roanoke Valley. 

    Come ready with your best practices and challenging questions about:

    1.    Retaining top talent is a tough economy

    2.    Attracting talent to the Roanoke Valley

    3.    Providing career paths when senior leaders never leave

    4.    Communicating changes in health care

    5.    Building and leveraging diversity


    Through the magic of technology, a “pencast” will be captured of each conversation and distributed so that you can continue the conversation and listen in to those break-out sessions you did not participate in.


    Facilitated by the RVSHRM board
