IHRSA 2016 Day 1: Welcome to Orlando!

Welcome to Orlando! We have a great first day of activities planned as we kick off what promises to be an exciting and eventful IHRSA 2016. If you haven’t already, I urge you to download the free IHRSA app, as it’s the best way to keep track of all that’s going on this week, including any last-minute schedule updates. You can also use it to plan your daily schedule, provide session feedback, and network with other attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and IHRSA staff.

If you’re new to IHRSA, don’t miss the “Making Connections” Orientation at 7:30 a.m. in Room S210-C. IHRSA staff will be on hand to answer questions and to help you make the most of your convention experience. You can also connect with IHRSA staff, network, or just relax in the IHRSA Member Center, which is located in Room S210 and sponsored by ABC Financial Services.

Today’s keynote speaker is Jay Baer, a renowned business strategist, keynote speaker, and The New York Times best-selling author of four books, who travels the world helping businesspeople get and keep more customers. Jay will present Youtility: Smart Marketing is About Help, Not Hype, which is sponsored by SPRI, at 10:45 a.m. in Room S320. 

This afternoon, the 7th Annual Women's Leadership Summit: Well-Being in Work and Life, which is sponsored by the American Council on Exercise (ACE), begins at 1:00 p.m. in Room S230-F. This presentation will offer strategies for experiencing greater joy and meaning in life, so that you can thrive despite the challenges you face. 

Tonight, don’t miss the Opening Welcome Reception, sponsored by ABC Financial. The party begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Hyatt’s Regency Ballroom, and it’s the perfect way to wrap up day one of IHRSA 2016!
