Fall 2019 CUE Conference Keynote Speaker and Topics

  • August 15, 2019

We are just sixty days away from the Fall 2019 CUE Conference in Las Vegas. There are lots of HR conferences where you might hear an update on a NLRB case law, or a company sharing one of their best employee relations practices, but there is only one HR community in which the members live and breathe positive employee relations.

There is no HR conference like a CUE conference.

Learn more here!

CUE is THE only conference where you get transparent sharing on campaign case studies, including mistakes that were made and opportunities to do better, and leadership discussions from the bleeding edge, along with glimpses into the internal operations of leading companies trying to build the best workplaces in the world.

Everything about a CUE conference is a little bit different and a little bit better than your average HR conference. We provide all your meals, and we don’t serve box lunches. We DO serve cocktails and offer great learning and networking opportunities.

Finally, join us for dinner and drinks at our Grand Opening Reception and Networking Event on Sunday at 6:00 PM.

On Monday, we have another day packed with learning opportunities covering a wide variety of topics. Enjoy a full breakfast, and then get set to turn your learning up to 11!
