Have you ever been asked who has inspired you most in your life and career? At some point, we are all asked this question, and it gives us good reason to stop and think about those who have helped us along the way.
At the Learning Leaders Conference, we are welcoming four mentors. These people have been mentors to me throughout my career. We all met through our ATD family which many of you belong to as well. Through the years, we have reached out to each other for various things from co-sponsorship of projects to restaurant recommendations. These four people and others close to me have made me see things in myself that I could not see on my own, they have pushed me out of my comfort zone, and right here and now, they have come together with me to do something different as it pertains to meeting as a group in our industry.
What gets me most excited about what we are doing is that we are able to give you a forum to meet people who may serve as your future mentors. We are bringing together people who have agreed to respect but challenge ideas, to share with and listen to others, and to offer up their greatest accomplishments and failures so that others can learn. This is what you provide when you apply for the Learning Leaders Conference. Your application and acceptance will further your career but it will also further the careers of others.
We invite you to meet your mentors at the Learning Leaders Conference this September 8 - 10, 2019, in Washington DC's beautiful National Harbor. We can't wait to welcome you.
