Making an Impact Through Learning

I hope you can join us in Dallas for our Annual Conference in five weeks. It will definitely be worth your time and investment. You will find a community of like-minded learning professionals who are passionate about the measurement, reporting and management of L&D. Leading industry thought leaders and practitioners will be there to share their thoughts and experiences with you. And, of course, you will learn a lot about what works and what doesn’t from fellow participants.

Our theme for this year’s conference is Making an Impact through Learning. We have selected speakers and topics to ensure that you will have the latest thinking from the best people in our profession on this always important topic. Like last year, we have scheduled plenty of time for networking so you can get your questions answered and learn from your colleagues.

Our keynoters this year are Patti Phillips and Jeff Higgins. I am sure you are familiar with Patti and Jack Phillips and their work on isolating the impact of learning and calculating ROI. (They will each also be conducting a breakout session.) You may not know Jeff who has a very interesting background as both an accountant and CFO and as a senior HR executive so he brings a unique perspective to our field. He has also been a contributor to the International Standards Organization’s (ISO) work on Human Capital Reporting standards which are just now being implemented around the world. You will learn a lot just from these two speakers!

You will also have the opportunity to hear from the current CLO of the Year, Brenda Sugrue, who will share her thoughts on her personal journey and on EY’s transformation. Other industry thought leaders include Jack Phillips on ROI, Ken Phillips on measuring application, Roy Pollock on ensuring results, John Mattox on the future of measurement, Laurent Balague on the best use of surveys, Peggy Parskey, Adri Moralis, and Justin Taylor on reducing scrap measurement and reporting, Jeff Carpenter on data analytics and adaptive learning, Cushing Anderson on adding value, and Kevin Yates on impact measurement.

In addition, we have some great practitioners lined up to share with you including Gary Whitney (formerly with IHG), Toni DeTuncq and Teddy Lynch (NSA), Laura Riskus (Caveo), Mark Lewis (Andeavor), and Dean Kothia (HP).

Last, please do consider joining us for our pre and post-conference workshops which round out CTR Week. We offer a two-day workshop on measurement and reporting and one on the Six Disciplines of Breakthrough Learning. And after the conference we offer four half-day workshops. So, come early or stay after the conference to invest in our own development.

If you have come to one of conferences or workshops in the past, welcome back. If this will be your first, we look forward to meeting you. Either way, you are an important part of this community and everyone will benefit from your questions and contributions. As you know, the Center for Talent Reporting is a nonprofit and our sole mission is to advance the profession. Each year’s CTR Week is an opportunity to come together, learn from each other, and grow. You will leave energized! Find out more about the conference and workshops at Hope to see you in Dallas!
