2014 Talent Symposium — Conference Highlights

Published by |

Our annual user conference, 2014 Talent Symposium was a complete whirlwind of learning, networking, and FUN. I mean, how could it not be? HealthcareSource + Las Vegas = FUN (trust us, we did the math).  The event, held earlier this month at Encore at the Wynn Las Vegas brought together hundreds of Healthcare HR, Organizational Development, and Education professionals from across the country (literally, from Maine to Alaska) to talk all things healthcare talent management.

This year’s conference has been the best one yet and included fabulous keynote presentations from industry thought leaders and our executive team, as well as dozens of breakout sessions led by HealthcareSource staff and clients alike. After two days jam-packed with educational sessions and networking, attendees let loose at one heck of a party at Encore’s hottest nightclub, Surrender, complete with dinner, dancing, cocktails, AND a photo booth (complete with feather boas and glitter mustaches, obviously).

If you weren’t able to attend the conference this year, or just need to refresh your memory (it is Vegas, after all…) — here’s a glimpse of what unfolded at this year’s conference:

Peter Segall, CEO kicked things off with a hilarious video featuring HealthcareSource employees before switching gears to discuss the future of healthcare

Mike DiPietro, Chief Marketing Officer attempted “The Ultimate Selfie” on the main stage
