President's Message

About ten years ago I graduated from college and entered a job market that was on its way to rock bottom. Looking back, I got a lot of advice from friends and family about how to navigate the turmoil ahead. But here are two things that have been most true and helpful on my journey.

Employee Learning Week

Do you hear that? Something’s coming....

Close your eyes. I want you to imagine the unimaginable, think the unthinkable. What if... WHAT IF you had an entire week to be as obnoxiously over the top about employee learning as you’ve always wanted to be? What if the logo and resources for this imaginary week were already created for you? What if all you had to do was distribute these resources to other Learning and Development professionals in your organization? Open your eyes. It’s the week of December 3, 2018. The unthinkable stares you in the face.

Get ready. It’s coming.
