ATD-PHL Featured Events

Employee Learning Week:
Sip, Savor and Share! 
Date: Multiple Dates and Times during the week of December 4th-8th
Location: Multiple Locations around the Greater Philadelphia Region


Employee Learning Week is the time when chapters across the country pay tribute to the investment that organizations make each year in developing their workforce – and this year we really want you to be a part of the conversation!


Every day during the week of December 4th we will be hosting local meet-ups at area restaurants all around our region with the goal of connecting you with L&D colleagues who live and work close-by. Each meet-up will be facilitated by a chapter leader who will help get the ideas and best practices flowing while maintaining a fun, casual atmosphere.  Find a date and location that works for you and RSVP to let us know you are coming and we’ll save you a seat!


…And there's more! From December 4th-8th, ATD members have exclusive access to Accel5, an informal tool that contains content such as business book summaries, articles and videos that feature key insights from the top minds in business! You can 
access this tool throughout the 2017 Employee Learning Week, courtesy of ATD-PHL!

January Chapter Event:
          The New World of Work: Talent and HR Predictions for 2018 with Josh Bersin
Date: January 18th, 2018
Time: 7:30 AM - 10:00 AM
Location: The Union League of Philadelphia  

In 2018, ATD PHL will continue our focus on total member engagement (TME) – where members have an opportunity to engage with the chapter in a way that is meaningful to them – and on providing programming, resources, experiences and exchanges with enhanced and exceptional value. The event featuring Josh Bersin is a prime example of TME.

The world of work has dramatically changed. Issues like citizenship, diversity, transparency, and the rise of the individual have changed the way we think about management. In this research-based presentation, Josh Bersin, Principal and Founder, Bersin by Deloitte, will show a vision for the world of work ahead, and give guidelines for HR and L&D managers for the year ahead.

Bersin by Deloitte is the leading provider of research-based information, benchmarking, professional development, and advisory consulting services for strategic HR, talent management, leadership development, recruiting, and training organizations. Bersin by Deloitte’s research, tools, and professional development help HR professionals and business leaders at all levels. More than a million HR professionals read Bersin research and information each month, with a piece of Bersin research downloaded approximately every minute of the business day.         



2017 Annual Regional Conference for Professional Development

Thanks for joining ATD-PHL for our 6th Annual Regional Conference for Professional Development which took place on Wednesday, September 13, 2017 at Drexel University’s LeBow College of Business. Over 130 attendees learned about becoming exceptional L&D talent from our fantastic keynote speaker, Jeffrey Orlando, and then proceeded to one of three breakout sessions to further their knowledge building. Attendees also engaged with exhibitors and sponsors while networking with L&D professionals from across the Greater Philadelphia region. What an incredible half-day of learning!

Member Testimonial

The first annual ATD Philadelphia regional conference in 2012 came at exactly the right time for me. I was beginning to transition from a career as a face-to-face adult learning director at a local college into workplace education. A bigger shift than I anticipated. I found out about the conference two days before it was to be held, and signed up. That day I met wonderful people from varied corners of the field, and attended captivating sessions. I left convinced that I was moving in the right direction. I kept coming back for more. I immediately was inspired to become active on the conference program committee. My participation affords me the opportunity to interact with thought leaders in the Training & Development field; this is a much richer experience than just being in the audience. 

It’s not easy to change careers in midlife. My friends through ATD-PHL have been trusted resources pointing me to new and interesting positions, and have helped me get noticed. In fact, I landed in my current position because an ATD presenter/mentor knew someone who I wanted to know.

I almost always feel the SIG gatherings and chapter events are worthwhile. Sometimes I attend simply because I enjoy the networking, camaraderie, and friendship!

I highly recommend membership. No regrets! Please join me.
