Employee Learning Week: Triumphs (and Tribulations) in Talent Development for 2018

Back by popular demand! ATD PHL is hosting multiple gatherings throughout the area during the first week of December. Employee Learning Week is the time when chapters across the country acknowledge the investment organizations make developing their workforce and we want you to be a part of the conversation!


The week kicks off on November 28th with a 15 minute State of the Chapter webinar where our President Elect, Amanda Wollert, discusses what is coming up for ATD PHL in 2019! Then, on December 4th, 5th, and 6th we will be hosting local meet-ups at area restaurants in Horsham, King of Prussia, Logan Square, and Lansdale to connect you with L&D colleagues in your area. Each meet-up will be facilitated by a chapter leader who will help get the conversations started 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!

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.
