Carrboro, NC (PRWEB) April 24, 2014
Tagoras, a consulting firm specializing in the global market for lifelong learning, is continuing its Washington, DC-area lunch series for executives and senior managers in the continuing education and professional development market. The second lunch for 2014 takes place on April 25 at Chef Geoff’s in downtown DC.
Leading Learning provides a peer-to-peer venue in which leaders at trade and professional associations can explore emerging opportunities in the lifelong learning market and develop strategies for growing their educational programs and market presence. Tagoras managing directors Jeff Cobb and Celisa Steele facilitate discussion at the lunches while also sharing best practices and insights from their ongoing work in the field.
The April 25 lunch is sponsored by Digital Ignite, developers of the Crowd Wisdom™ social learning platform. Digital Ignite CEO Tamer Ali will offer brief comments on the continuing education market and then introduce representatives from the American Society for Training and Development (ASTD) who will discuss some of that organization’s key education and training initiatives.
“Leading Learning is emerging as the event and the community for professionals who are serious about taking their lifelong learning businesses to new levels,” said Tagoras managing director Jeff Cobb. “People who attend these lunches recognize the importance of investing in their own development and networking. As a result, the caliber of discussion and the value attendees get from it is very high.”
