October 2016 Issue | Special Conference Edition
Our Annual Workplace Learning Conference is here! On October 12th we will pack the Mercer Island Event Center with Talent Development Professionals. This year we will explore Our Legacy as Learning Professionals. This is such a great topic to delve into. What do you want your legacy to be? How do you get there? What does it look like? We will explore this through 1 dynamic day filled with 2 keynote speakers and 20 breakout sessions.
I beam with delight in this conference. As a past conference committee member, I know how hard our conference committee has worked to bring you the best programming at the best value. This conference has great energy with people that are passionate about learning and who want to be better versions of themselves. This is a conference that embraces introverts, give space to those that are overwhelmed by the word networking all while creating a space that welcomes a collaborative spirit and networking opportunities. How do we do this? You will have to come and see for yourself! We have created a space that is safe for you to learn, connect and grow in your own way.
We are supported by generous sponsors this year who want to ensure you have access to cutting edge systems, subject matter experts and new solutions to your everyday problems.
If you researched the conference earlier when we first started promoting it, I encourage you to go back and check it out; a lot has changed and we have been able to bring you a more robust program in a shorter timeframe. I challenge you to read the breakout sessions and not be intrigued by at least 10!
Registration is still open and space is filling. I hope to see you there!
Get engaged. Explore possibilities. Be happy.
