Day One – October 28
With 85% of the global workforce reported as disengaged, we are in critical need of a transformative solution to burnout. In this session, we discuss the origin of burnout as it relates to the evolution of human consciousness. The session will outline where we are headed in the next era of work and will end by offering practical ways that attendees can begin shifting their own workplace roles to better suit their gifts, passions, and needs.
At the end of this session, attendees should be able to reiterate a new framework for the origin of burnout as it relates to the evolution of human consciousness, describe the future of work through the lens of an elevated level of human consciousness, and define their own gifts, passions, and needs as we define at least one action step that will enhance their quality of life at work.
Audits are a fact of life in government, and having a good working relationship with your auditor can make everyone’s lives much easier. This session will provide attendees the opportunity to understand and consider this dynamic from both the client and auditor perspectives.
At the end of this session, attendees will possess a deeper understanding of the overall importance of public sector audit activity to effective governance as well as the key elements needed to maximize the value the audit activity provides to all levels of the public sector. When cultivated in an effective manner, the auditor-client relationship can result in more efficient and transparent governance.
This session will provide attendees with the framework to understand and evaluate key fundamentals for investment grade corporate credit issuers and better understand rating migration risk.
At the end of this session, attendees will gain a stronger understanding of the importance of both top-down and bottom-up fundamental analysis used to determine the strength of corporate credit issuers and gain a better understanding of the core and supplemental credit rating metrics implemented by the Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organizations (NRSRO).
Day Two – October 29
The presentation will take a detailed look at the national and state economic conditions in 2020 and beyond. What type of economic recovery should we expect? What industries are least and most impacted? What possibilities are there for more permanent economic change as a result of this disruption?
At the end of this session, attendees will gain a better understanding of the current state of the national economy and policy, current assessment of the state economy, potential recovery paths, and disruption and change that could become more permanent.
