We are excited to present industry leaders with innovative new ideas, research and insights that they can use to achieve groundbreaking success.

Chief Learning Officer magazine (CLO), a Human Capital Media publication, finalized programming details for its rebranded fall event, the CLO Symposium+PLUS at the JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn in Scottsdale, Arizona, Sept. 26-27. Hundreds of senior learning and talent professionals, corporate executives and human capital management experts are expected to attend the event.

“We are excited to present industry leaders with innovative new ideas, research and insights that they can use to achieve groundbreaking success,” said Mike Prokopeak, CLO editor in chief. “Since its inception in 2004, the symposium has been the premier event for learning leaders. This fall, we’re building on that strong tradition with a newly designed one-of-a-kind conference experience that incorporates talent management and reflects just how important learning and talent are to future success.”

Built with the theme “The Talent Economy,” the CLO Symposium+PLUS uncovers the cutting-edge integrated talent practices needed to thrive in today’s competitive economy. Keynote speakers include top management and performance experts as well as authors and music moguls including:

  • Troy Carter, tech entrepreneur, venture capitalist and newly appointed global head of creative services at Spotify.

  • Whitney Johnson, author of “Disrupt Yourself: Putting the Power of Disruptive Innovation to Work” and contributor to Harvard Business Review.
  • Eric Weiner, travel writer and New York Times bestselling author of “The Geography of Bliss” and former international correspondent for NPR.

The rest of the agenda includes an additional 50 speakers that the editors of Chief Learning Officer have enlisted. Industry experts, L&D leaders and talent specialists from across the globe will initiate discussions on critical issues through a wide variety of workshops offering successful “feet-on-the-ground” strategies, an interactive practicum session and a mentoring program. CLO Symposium+PLUS attendees can earn up to 12 recertification credit hours toward PHR, SPHR and GPHR recertification through the HR Certification Institute as well as 12 PDCs for SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP through the SHRM Certification.

The CLO Symposium+PLUS will conclude with the Learning in Practice Awards dinner and celebration. The annual Learning in Practice Awards recognize industry leaders for excellence in the design and delivery of workforce learning and development programs.
