LUC: DEEANE KING
August 19, 2021
By registering for this event, I agree that I am fully vaccinated and understand that I may be required to wear a mask for the entirety of the event, based on local regulations.
Please join us for a discussion with Deeanne King, Chief Human Resources Officer at T-Mobile, as she shares her experiences in leading through transition. T-Mobile completed the acquisition of Sprint on April 1, 2020. As a result, the organization has been working through the integration of these two companies at the same time as a global pandemic. Deeanne will shed light on how the organization has been working through these moments while focusing on a people first culture and delivering strong financial results. Register here >>
