The 2018 Betsy Magness Graduate Institute (BMGI) will take place November 29-30, 2018 in Philadelphia, PA. Developed in partnership with the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL), the Betsy Magness Graduate Institute is one and a half days of focused instruction and discussion on key management challenges and opportunities for today’s senior leaders. 

Continue your Betsy Magness journey—join us at BMGI. The world of work is changing – it’s getting flatter and global distribution is the name of the game. To remain agile and thrive in this new environment, organizations can no longer rely on traditional models to manage their talent portfolios.

And it’s not enough to simply keep track of who is doing the work – which today may include a mix of employees, contractors and freelancers – but what may be doing the work, as artificial intelligence increasingly takes on roles humans have filled for decades.

Your talent ecosystem must keep pace with these shifts, and as leaders, you need to be ahead of the curve.

BMGI faculty members from CCL, George Hallenbeck, Director, Commercialization, and Steve Young, Senior Research Scientist, will join facilitator Sara King to explain how the definition of talent is changing in response to disruptions in the workforce, and describe the ways you can take advantage of new, experimental AI tools to maintain your developmental edge.

After attending this year’s BMGI, you will return to the workplace with winning strategies and tactics that you can scale across your organization, enabling you to drive innovation and stay ahead of the competition. And in addition to all-new content, there will be plenty of time for networking with your peers.

The program will open with a reception at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, November 28 (to include Classes 38 and 39 of BMLI) and will conclude by 12:30 pm on Friday, November 30. All sessions will take place at The Logan Philadelphia, conveniently located in downtown Philly, a short cab ride from the 30th Street train station.

Take a look at what attendees have to say about past BMGI programs:

  • “So many takeaways, both professionally and personally.”
  • “I have the same spark and warm feelings I had from my 1st time with BMLI. This was worth the money and time and I look forward to this again next year. Thank you for helping me push the ‘reset’ button.”
  • “The session is a good recharge and a good reminder of leadership concepts I can always benefit from hearing again.”

This learning experience has been developed by WICT, in concert with the experts from the Center for Creative Leadership, exclusively for WICT’s Betsy Magness Leadership Institute alumnae.
