Annual WP&BC Seattle Chapter Spring Seminar - 2019

The Western Pension & Benefits Council, Seattle Chapter's focus with our 2019 Spring Seminar is to provide benefits professionals with tools, knowledge and new ideas to help pension and benefits plan participants. This year’s Spring Seminar will continue to offer key industry updates necessary to stay current as benefits professionals.

Our luncheon speaker is Seattle Seahawks, Director of Pro Personnel, Nolan Teasley. He will "kick off" the afternoon session with a look at"Managing Change and Maintaining a Winning Culture".  

Immediately following the last session, plan to stay and visit with colleagues, speakers and and sponsor representatives at the hosted cocktail reception.

Managing Change and Maintaining a Winning Culture

Seattle Seahawks Director of Pro Personnel, Nolan Teasley, will share his perspective on the upcoming season, as well as a behind the scenes looks at the Seahawks approach to managing change and maintaining a winning culture. Common to all organizations is the need to attract and retain the best talent, and to manage that talent to achieve the organization’s mission. But few organizations do that more publicly than a professional sports team.  

Nolan’s tenacity and work ethic, that have led to his rapid growth within the Seahawks organization is an inspiring story. A prior college football player, Nolan left his career in corporate marketing to follow his passion, taking an entry-level position as an intern with the Seahawks in 2013. He was soon promoted to Pro Scout, and spent his time evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of professional football players across the NFL.

Last year, in his sixth season, Nolan was promoted to Director of Pro Personnel, with primary responsibility for acquiring and contracting with players to fill gaps and create the depth of strength needed for the Seahawks’ success. Nolan is an engaging speaker, and will welcome your questions.
