Chicago, Aug. 3, 2012 — Enterprise learning and development executives from around the world will convene this September at Chief Learning Officer magazine’s Fall 2012 Symposium.
“Change isn’t just endemic to business today,” said Norm Kamikow, president and editor in chief of MediaTec Publishing, Inc., which publishes Chief Learning Officer magazine. “It is unrelenting. In times of dramatic change and short-term decision-making, only those organizations that anticipate market demands, proactively fill performance gaps and prepare a highly adaptable workforce will be built to last. For the foreseeable future, the ability to continuously train, transform and develop people and their skills will be critical for any agile, high-performing organization.”
According to Kamikow, these competitive realities shaped the upcoming CLO Symposium program, slated for Sept. 19-21 at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colo. For three days, hundreds of chief learning officers, corporate executives and talent development experts will focus their attention on the theme “Learning That Lasts: Reaching New Levels of Performance.” The high-level agenda features keynote addresses, panel discussions, workshops and interactive sessions designed to explore innovative techniques and technologies for building a long-term learning strategy.
The CLO Symposium is ranked by Leadership Excellence magazine as the number one Leadership Development event for learning executives, based on program focus, the caliber and credentials of the speakers and how meaningful and valuable sessions are to participants. “Attendees get the real deal on Leadership Development: how to design it, develop it, and deliver it for results that actually benefit the company, its employees and its stakeholders,” said Ken Shelton, editor and CEO of Leadership Excellence.
Attendees at the Fall 2012 Symposium can earn HR Certification Institute continuing education credits, as well as points toward re-certifying as Certified Performance Technologists.
