Tuesday, October 7, 2014 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Presented by:  Bill Burnett, Consultant, Author of The Peak Interview

Being at your peak during a job interview can mean the difference between landing a job or not.  Every expert in the field will tell you that the truth about the job interview is that the hiring manager will end up hiring the person he or she likes the most.  By the time you get an interview, the company has determined you are qualified for the job.  But so are all the other interviewees.  You need an edge.  Bill will bring a fresh look at the interview process.  He takes the existing research into the interview process and marries it to the best in neuroscience to provide an easy to follow pathway to be the person the hiring manager likes the most.  People evaluate an experience based on its peaks (good or bad) and how the experience ended.  Bill will show you how to build peaks as you prepare for and produce an outstanding interview.

Engagement and Innovation Author, Speaker, and Consultant, Bill Burnett is a Partner with Tailwind Discovery Group, an organization that helps owners and CEO’s achieve “Tailwind Moments”, the times in business when the wind is at your back.  He has more than 25 years of experience in the financial services industry.  And is a proven leader with a track record of building and leading innovation teams at both the global and local level; delivering ingenious performance improvements in Product, Customer Service, Operations, Network Infrastructure, Systems Functionality, and Policy Management.
