Past Performance is an Excellent Indicator

Rod Colon on Networking vs. Selling

As the HPNG team is making final preparations for our upcoming Latino Leadership Conference on July 1, 2008, the video above provides a sneak peek at the quality educational programs HPNG makes available to its members. Back on April 29, 2008, our "Career Management Workshop" was a high impact educational experience for all attendees. Rod Colon, CEO & Founder of ETP Network, led the workshop with powerful information on the importance of reciprocal networking. Rod also covered the synergy of combining Indeed with LinkedIn to leverage network connections to exponentially acquire job interviews or business opportunities. This extremely interactive workshop empowered attendees with a completely new set of proven techniques that minimizes time spent on a job search or closing deals.

The trend is clear and the ramifications are obvious. As the largest and fastest growing demographic group in the United States, organizations are raising their sense of urgency regarding their Latino initiatives because they view the Latino community as their next great source of intellectual capital and as a catalyst for economic growth. All of the interest and focus on the Hispanic community is creating numerous opportunities for those Latinos that are well prepared.

The 2008 HPNG Latino Leadership Conference is designed to promote career development and professional growth for the next generation of Latino leaders. The conference agenda includes an impressive list of Latino executives who will share their insights, experiences and advice on how Latinos can reach their full potential and achieve tremendous career success. You’ll learn from these role models as they share their inspiring stories and describe how they overcame common career roadblocks, leveraged their ethnicity as an asset, navigated organizational politics and played a positive role in their communities.

The agenda is designed to allow you to be an active participant in the learning experience.

Session Title: Latino Talent: Effective Strategies to Recruit, Retain & Develop Hispanic Professionals

Date: Thursday, June 5th, 2008
Time: 1:00 - 2:00 p.m., CDT

Session Description: Due to their growing population and rising purchasing power, organizations see the Latino community as their next great source of intellectual capital and a catalyst for economic growth. Yet despite this interest in the Latino community, organizations are woefully unprepared to tap into the Latino talent pool because they do not have a textured understanding of Latino diversity. This lack of understanding and insight about the Latino community results in common mistakes made by corporations whose talent management strategies are ineffective when applied to the Latino community.

This informative session will provide much-needed insight about Latino diversity by addressing important terminology, key demographic statistics and an insightful analysis of Hispanic heritage. Numerous corporate best practices will be highlighted that demonstrate how such an insight into the Latino community provides the foundation for successful Latino diversity initiatives.

The main focus of the session concentrates on providing practical, real-world solutions that companies can apply immediately to more effectively recruit, retain and develop Latino professionals. This session is a must for diversity practitioners, human resource executives and will be enjoyed by Latino professionals.
