Elearning! Media Group (ELM), the voice of the $160 billion enterprise learning industry, announces its keynotes at the Enterprise Learning! Summit on March 20-21, 2012, at the Old Town Hilton in Alexandria, Va. The Summit is where leaders meet to build smarter organizations and is home to the Government Learning! and Learning! 100 programs.
The Opening Keynote, titled “Enterprise 2020: Thriving in the Net-Work Era,” features three of the best minds in enterprise learning. Jay Cross, principal, Internet Time Alliance and author of “The Working Smarter Fieldbook,” is joined by Nick van Dam, Global CLO, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu and author of “Next Learning Unwrapped.” Karie Willyerd, CLO, SuccessFactors and author of “The 2020 Workplace: How Innovative Companies Attract Tomorrow’s Employees Today" rounds out the panel.
Leaders from America’s organizations will discover which skills they need to embrace to thrive in the 21st century. Cross, van Dam and Willyerd will discuss how to prepare for the social network era, critical talent shortages, and the new rules of leadership. Be prepared to re-think your own paradigms and take the first step on the road to Enterprise 2020.
“Each of these learning leaders approach the challenges of the 21st century very differently,” reports Joe DiDonato, conference chair, Enterprise Learning! Events. “We are living in an exciting yet challenging time for enterprises, given the global business environment. And these are the thought leaders to tap for advice and direction.”
The second annual Learning! 100 Awards will also be hosted at the Summit. Partner, Aberdeen Group, will present the Learning! 100 Best-in-Class Learning and Development findings in the closing keynote on Tuesday, March 20. This closing session precedes the Learning! 100 Awards Reception and Dinner in the evening. Previous honorees include Intel, American Express, United Parcel Service, Department of Defense, State of Florida, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the U.S. Army among 100 of America’s Top Learning Organizations.
The closing keynote presentation is “Courage to Lead,” presented Dave Carey, Captain, U.S. Navy, retired, and former director of the U.S. Navy Leadership and Training School. From his experience as a P.O.W. for five-and-a-half years, Carey helps people better understand how to overcome challenges in their own lives; to have the courage to lead. He empowers others to overcome seemingly insurmountable difficulties to gain a renewed sense of purpose, perspective, satisfaction and control over their circumstances. Just when you thought it was too much, Carey will inspire you to turn the challenge on its head.
“We are honored to host Dave Carey, an American hero, at the Enterprise Learning! Summit,” says Catherine Upton, Group Publisher, Elearning! Media Group.”Sometimes we are too close to the forest to see the trees. Dave will inspire us all to be better leaders and better human beings.”
