It’s hard to believe that we have another regional conference in the books. Each year this conference gets better and better. This year was no exception. If you were there, thank you. If you missed it, here is what you missed.
This year’s conference theme was DisrupTD. The theme came from the thought that the workplace is changing at light speed and so is talent development. As learning and development professionals, we need to deliver results despite the disruptive changes happening around us. The 2017 New England Area Conference wanted to offer opportunities to gain knowledge, strategies and solutions needed to effectively meet these new challenges.
We began with our morning keynote: Donald H Taylor, who is Chairman of the Board, The Learning & Performance Institute. Donald’s topic was “Learning Technologies in the Workplace.” We then held the concurrent sessions and ended our day with our afternoon keynote speaker Jeanne Meister, the author of “The Future Workplace Experience.”
We would also like to thank Clark University School of Professional Studies for sponsoring this year’s conference.
