The BigHR Event 2022: For CHROs and Direct Reports

September 9th, 2022

Renaissance Hotel in Plano, Texas

Discover How Leveraging Financial Acumen Can Put You On The Launching Pad to Business Strategist

Master The Key Factor CEOs and Boards Want In Their CHROs and Board Members

Be among the first to take part in the most “out-of-the-box” HR event of the year…

Where you’ll get the chance to…

  • Unravel the mysteries and complexities of financial acumen in a fun, engaging, and practical way…

(This will NOT be a lecture! It’s going to be a 100% interactive and stimulating experience meant to impart both theoretical and practical knowledge.

  • Bolster your understanding of how a business is run and how you can have a positive and lasting impact on its growth…

(You’ll come out of this event with a better understanding of how to run a business …even if you already have financial acumen.)

  • Leverage the knowledge you get on the spot by competing against others in game-based real-world scenarios…

(Come out on top and you’ll win a [PRIZE]!)

  • Develop the mindset and skills that will make any CEO eager to make you part of the Board…

(CEOs greatly value people who can breathe new life into their businesses…especially when they understand the financial fine-tuning required to grow a business smoothly.)

  • PLUS…enjoy a delicious lunch, Happy Hour, and a four-string quartet in the company of like-minded peers!

(Enjoying a good meal,  drinks, and listening to good music is enough reason to get out of the house and come join us!)


It’s all going down LIVE and IN PERSON in Plano, Tx at the Renaissance - Legacy West

Listen we both know that being a CHRO in this day and age can feel OVERWHELMING…

Most of the time you feel like you are putting out one fire after the other…

While struggling to juggle all the other responsibilities that come with the job…

From finding new and competent talent to making sure your current employees are well-taken care of and don’t suddenly quit on you…

With all of that going on it’s hard to make time for yourself and your own career growth. HOWEVER…

This is also the perfect time to arm yourself with the knowledge and skills which will make you a valuable asset to any CEO! WHY?

Because now more than ever businesses are looking for HR professionals who can help them grow in a sustainable and real manner…

HR leaders who not only know how to attract the right talent…

They also have an intimate knowledge of how the business operates…

And can make quick and valuable decisions…

Making a positive impact not only on the employees but also on the bottom line!

The 1 Day Event That May Change Your Career Path FOREVER

The in-person BigHR Event is for CHROs and direct reports who are eager to take their careers to the next level…

By amassing the knowledge and skills savvy CEOs treasure and desire in their Business Strategist and Board Members…

Or if you are familiar with the intricate nature of financial acumen…

Is being used by MBA programs at institutions like Texas A&M, Duke, Cornell, and Purdue…
