Kathryn Shepherd, Chair.

This year is all about you! Whether you’re a solo owner, boutique shop, blended services, executive search, or larger staffing company, we promise there is something for everyone and you will find value that exceeds your investment.

I facilitated a mid-west Owner’s retreat some years ago where Barb Bruno lead the retreat and the owners were blown away…..and couldn’t get enough. I knew one day it would be my turn to bring her to CSP’s OOR…………..and 2016 is it! Barb will have you spinning and reeling with excitement both mornings!

You will be invited to submit anonymously prior to the event “what keeps you up at night”, and you will go home with the answer!!!!! How cool is that?  Any company problems, owner issues, expert advice …nothing is too big or small to bring to the table. We will have intimate “shop talk” tables to discuss comp plans, ACA, remote employees, cloud options, benefits, internal HR issues (and more!) and separate rooms for work shops that includes legal documentation, co-employment issues and growth crisis/empowerment concerns Saturday afternoon. You get to mix it up…..go wherever you want cause “it’s all about you”!

For fun on Thursday we will host a 9 hole golf tournament in the morning and later in the afternoon wine blending with a Napa wine master followed with an evening reception, and on Friday evening we will host our annual poker tournament along with a well-known magician to entertain you………….cause “it’s all about you!”

So, sign up early to enjoy your time networking and brainstorming with like owners at the gorgeous Ritz Carlton Tahoe and dine in style! Perhaps take a couple of extra days (we arranged for the same special room rate 3 days prior and after) and visit Tahoe City, Truckee or the Tahoe Village. Bring a friend, significant other, hubby or wife and treat them to the beautiful surroundings where the weather is promised to be perfect.

Mike Schulman and I look forward to seeing you there!
