Jack Welch to Keynote Peopleclick Authoria Global Client Conference 2010

Former General Electric Chairman and CEO to Discuss Talent Management in a High Performing Work Environment

RALEIGH, NC and WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - July 8, 2010) -  Jack Welch, former General Electric Chairman and CEO, will be the keynote speaker at Peopleclick Authoria's Global Client Conference (GCC), taking place October 11th - 14th, 2010 in Charleston, South Carolina. Welch will discuss the importance of Topgrading in talent management and how high-performing employees are the key to success in the global work environment.

Welch's keynote session, taking place on Wednesday, October 13th from 9:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. ET, will be a live Q&A session with Charles S. Jones, Chairman of Peopleclick Authoria. After the keynote session, attendees will be able to speak with Welch one-on-one during an autograph signing of his best-selling book, "Winning," during a meet-and-greet.

"One of the greatest challenges of anyone's career is finding their own managerial style. However, finding one's style does not come overnight, it comes from years of experience and commitment to the job," said Welch. "At the Peopleclick Authoria GCC, I'll share the experiences of my own career and field questions from attendees on how to find, retain and mold top talent into tomorrow's leaders."

Jack Welch in 2001 was named Manager of the Century by Fortune magazine, after serving as CEO of GE since 1981. Currently the head of Jack Welch, LLC, he serves as Special Partner with the private equity firm, Clayton, Dubilier & Rice and is a consultant to IAC (Interactive Corp). Continuing his interest in management development, Welch also recently launched the "Jack Welch Management Institute," a unique online MBA program aimed at giving students around the world and at every career level the tools to transform their lives and the organizations of the future.
