You have your flight booked, your hotel reserved and your #Compference17 registration all ready to go. You might even know which Austin gems you’re going to visit in your off hours. But the question remains: Which sessions are on your must-see list?
I’ve been to every Compference since the beginning, and it’s inspiring, high-energy and fun. Yet you can miss a lot of great stuff if you haven’t figured out at least a few of your must-see sessions ahead of time. To get you started on the right foot, here are my top recommendations:
“Designing an Incentive Plan That Moves the Needle”
Begin your first day of Compference (Tuesday, October 3rd) by learning the secrets of creating the right incentive plan. During “Designing an Incentive Plan That Moves the Needle,” Brooke Birdsong, Director of Total Rewards at Associa, will share different incentive plan designs, as well as how to start building one that’s unique to your organization. Don’t miss a single minute — the session starts at 10:30 am.
Start #Compference17 off right by learning the secrets of building the right incentive plan.
