next month for Chief Learning Officer magazine’s Spring 2013 CLO Symposium. Ranked the Best Leadership Development Event by Leadership Excellence magazine in both 2011 and 2012, the Symposium is unmatched among human capital conferences for the caliber and expertise of its speakers, the quality of professional development it delivers, plus its plentiful and productive networking opportunities.
During the upcoming Symposium, slated for March 18-20 at the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort & Spa, attendees will focus on the theme “Home on the Range: Learning for a Globalized Workforce” and examine ways in which new business realities, technology advances and the breaking down of traditional borders and boundaries are altering the delivery of learning and development.
“The reality of business today is much different from what it was even a short decade ago,” said Norm Kamikow, president and editor in chief of MediaTec Publishing Inc., which publishes Chief Learning Officer magazine. “The home range is no longer just the head office or the local market. The new world of work represents a global community full of customers, collaborators and co-workers, suppliers and stakeholders, both near and far.
“The challenge for chief learning officers is delivering robust development to this dispersed and diverse community of learners and creating a learning environment for everyone that feels like home. Attendees at the Spring CLO Symposium will engage in dynamic discussions about these issues and walk away with actionable — and potentially game-changing — insights they can use immediately to optimize the impact of their enterprise education initiatives.”
A major reason for the Symposium’s high profile and popularity is the strategic focus of the executive-level sessions included on the agenda. For the spring meeting, the magazine’s editors have enlisted an extraordinary lineup of thought leaders and L&D practitioners to deliver panel discussions on critical issues, a wide range of workshops offering successful “feet-on-the-ground” strategies and interactive sessions exploring approaches to making workforce development more accessible for a globalized workforce. Symposium attendees can earn HR Certification Institute continuing education credits, as well as points toward recertifying as Certified Performance Technologists.
The Spring CLO Symposium also coincides with the annual unveiling of the LearningElite, the magazine’s prestigious peer-reviewed benchmarking program recognizing those organizations deploying exceptional L&D practices and delivering measurable business value. Preceding the official opening of the Symposium, the final 2013 LearningElite rankings will be announced March 17 at a gala celebration sponsored by Bellevue University, getAbstract and Procter & Gamble.
