For this Symposium, we’ve created a program focused on corporate educators as both creative leaders and continuous learners.

Chief Learning Officer magazine released final program details today for CLO Symposium Fall 2018, a much-anticipated summit for corporate educators looking to enhance their leadership and increase influence within their organizations. The meeting, Sept. 30 through Oct. 2, will bring international learning and development and human capital management executives together at the Marriott Marquis Houston for targeted professional development focused on Leadership through Learning.

“The executives who are responsible for constantly refining and redefining the workforce in response to unrelenting change also grapple with the necessity of taking time to focus on their own professional development,” said Mike Prokopeak, editor in chief of Chief Learning Officer. “They, of all people, recognize that they simply can’t rely on past experiences and competencies and expect to keep delivering resilient, ready-for-whatever-comes-next employees. For this Symposium, we’ve created a program focused on corporate educators as both creative leaders and continuous learners.”

The magazine’s editors have developed a high-level agenda for conference attendees. Highlights include an eclectic lineup of keynote speakers discussing the challenges of 21st century leadership, beginning with a curated look at the latest research on how the learning leader’s role specifically is evolving to meet these challenges. Led by Sarah Kimmel, Chief Learning Officer’s vice president of research, attendees will delve into findings from the new “Future Role of the CLO” report.

Daily educational sessions also include a wide variety of workshops characterized as “chief learning officers learning from chief learning officers.” Presenters will provide case studies and new strategies for making workforce development an even more powerful driver of organizational performance. On the closing day of the Symposium, a first-ever “Leadership Town Hall” moderated by Rebecca Ray, executive vice president of Knowledge Organization for The Conference Board, will afford the executives a unique opportunity to openly discuss and debate what they’ve learned during the summit and collectively develop strategies for their continuing growth as leaders.

The Fall Symposium also features the unveiling of the prestigious 2018 CLO of the Year and the winners of the annual Learning In Practice Awards honoring visionary industry leaders who demonstrate excellence in the design and delivery of employee development programs. The special awards presentation caps off the conference agenda, followed by a closing reception. Diamond Sponsors for CLO Symposium Fall 2018 are SumTotal Systems LLC and Insights.

Industry professionals attending the Symposium can earn credit hours toward PHR, SPHR and GPHR recertification through the HR Certification Institute and professional development credits for the SHRM-CPSM or SHRM-SCPSM.
