Workforce development leaders explore creative strategies for responding to new user demands and emerging technologies at Chief Learning Officer's flagship event

CLO Symposium 2018
This conference offered a remarkable opportunity for many of the top minds in the industry to get together, get creative and apply their collective expertise to maximizing the impact and relevance of training and development.

A future-focused executive summit for corporate educators and human capital management professionals wrapped up in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, today. Developed and hosted by Chief Learning Officer magazine, the Spring 2018 CLO Symposium drew hundreds of global workforce development leaders intent on “Reimagining the Learning Experience” for the digital age.

“Delivering the best user experience is no longer just a goal for tech companies or entertainment enterprises,” said Mike Prokopeak, editor in chief of Human Capital Media (HCM), which publishes the magazine. “It’s a necessity for any modern organization that has to interact, inform and communicate effectively.”

Prokopeak pointed out that the stakes are especially high for corporate educators — the executives responsible for keeping diverse, multigenerational workforces fully skilled and a step ahead in a constantly evolving business environment.

“Learning leaders must understand not only what employees need to know but also how they learn, when they learn and what they expect and want from the learning experience itself. This conference offered a remarkable opportunity for many of the top minds in the industry to get together, get creative and apply their collective expertise to maximizing the impact and relevance of training and development,” said Prokopeak.

The Symposium proved to be a perfect forum for exploring the issues of primary concern to the workforce development industry. The three-day program included keynotes from best-selling authors and business innovators, as well as inspiring interviews with pioneering chief learning officers and executive-level educational sessions examining best practices and solutions. On opening night of the conference, the magazine also revealed the prestigious 2018 CLO LearningElite at a gala reception honoring global organizations using exceptional L&D practices to create business value. Diamond Sponsors for the Symposium were DeVryWORKS and Southern New Hampshire University.

Beginning April 23, professionals from throughout the industry will have another chance to experience select sessions from the live event by registering for on-demand access to the online CLO Symposium Video Library. The magazine’s editors will be releasing new content each week. For details, visit the event website and navigate to the content section.

HCM also released the theme and dates for the magazine’s next conference, Sept. 30 to Oct. 2, at the Marriott Marquis Houston. Under the “Leadership through Learning” banner, CLO Symposium+PLUS 2018 will offer a program of executive-caliber development and power networking designed to help workforce development professionals expand their knowledge, intensify their influence and value within the enterprise and level up their leadership.
