It’s hard to make connections right now. COVID19 has become but one of many jarring elements in our daily lives. But we can’t wait. We need each other more than ever. It’s time to build your Personal Trust Network.
Our host, Matt Elwell of MattElwell.com, will be leading a 90-minute, highly interactive Zoom session. Unlike traditional networking, this event focuses on people getting to know each other as people, while still connecting around business needs. Participants will get the chance to share current experiences, talk about what’s working, and determine potential for future conversations with each other.
Mix of presentation, large group & small group interactive discussions. Informal Zoom atmosphere; please bring your own coffee/tea/snacks. We will ask that all participants keep their camera on during the entire program, to promote good involvement and interaction.
This is a free event for members and non-members. We encourage you to bring a friend too!

Like many buzz words, the term “be strategic” is spoken more often than it is understood. Whether the expectation comes from our internal clients, learning function leadership, or ourselves, we must begin by getting clear on what it really means to be strategic and what it looks like in practice. If our learning function is a key enabler of business success, have we earned the right to say that it is strategic?
To know for sure, we must ask ourselves two questions:
Both are important, though often, learning professionals that are very adept at the former (which is more responsive), sometimes struggle with the latter (which is more proactive).
This session will explore both what we need from our business leader, and what we need to bring to the table to be strategic.
