Senior learning and development execs to explore the technologies, trends and strategies required to keep employees up-skilled and equipped to compete.

CLO Symposium Spring 2019
Twice a year, we put together a program that is designed to keep L&D professionals up to speed on what’s new in corporate learning, what’s no longer relevant, and what’s driving both long-term strategy and day-to-day decisions about knowledge delivery in a digital and constantly disruptive world.

When hundreds of corporate education executives convene in Las Vegas next April, they will be focused on one thing: How to develop employees who are fully prepared and properly skilled for whatever comes next. During Chief Learning Officer’s CLO Symposium Spring 2019, these senior-level learning leaders and their teams will explore the enterprise education technologies, trends and practices that are shaping the ability of organizations to adapt and compete in a constantly changing world. The theme for the three-day meeting is “Faster, Better, Smarter: Creating a Future Ready Workforce.”

This conference, taking place April 1–3 at the JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa, marks the CLO Symposium’s 15th anniversary as an intimate, high-level summit for top learning and development leaders. In that time, it has become “an important forum for collaboration on industry issues, a force for advancing the business impact of enterprise education and a tight-knit community of committed chief learning officers,” said Mike Prokopeak, editor in chief of Chief Learning Officer magazine, which produces the Symposium.

“Twice a year, we put together a program that is designed to keep L&D professionals up to speed on what’s new in corporate learning, what’s no longer relevant, and what’s driving both long-term strategy and day-to-day decisions about knowledge delivery in a digital and constantly disruptive world.”

According to Prokopeak, the spring conference in Las Vegas is shaping up to be all about the next big thing. The Chief Learning Officer editorial team is in the process of developing an agenda that will include panel discussions on emerging issues, workshops on creative industry solutions, Power Hour presentations from practitioners who have launched innovative learning initiatives as well as energizing thought leadership from an eclectic line-up of keynote speakers:

  • Ingrid Fetell Lee, Founder of The Aesthetics of Joy, Design Expert and Author of “Joyful.”
  • Shane Snow, Human Explorer, Business and Science Journalist and Author of “Smartcuts and Dream Teams.”
  • Karla Starr, Award-winning Journalist, Author of “Can You Learn to Be Lucky?” and Co-author of “The Hilton Effect.”
  • Brenda Sugrue, Global Chief Learning Officer at EY and 2018 Chief Learning Officer CLO of the Year.

Another highlight of the spring CLO Symposium will be the unveiling of the 2019 LearningElite, the magazine’s prestigious annual benchmarking program recognizing organizations that use exceptional L&D practices to deliver business value. The highly anticipated LearningElite Gala awards dinner and celebration will cap off the first day of the conference.
