Executive Learning Exchange

Our strong learning leader & talent development community, The Executive Learning ExchangeSM (ELE), started in 2002 as an internal Chicagoland Learning Leaders Conference at Baxter. Over the years we have evolved into two strong invite-only cohorts (no vendors)—one based in Chicagoland and the other in Wisconsin—of highly diverse and collaborative leaders.

We hope you can join one of the following upcoming peer-networking experiences: We continue to add collaboration strength with our community.


Last Thursday, we met in-person and shared solutions as a peer-group at the 8th Annual SE-WI Learning & Talent Development Leaders Exchange @ GE Healthcare Institute. After Jay Jamrog (i4cp) kicked off last week with the latest research on Trends in L&D--What does the profession need to do by 2020?, I was humbled by the depth of impactful insight during the keynote and concurrent sessions throughout the day.

Many thanks to GE Healthcare Institute for creating a fabulous experience and hosting our SE-WI Exchange at their Conference Center in Waukesha, Wisconsin. A few post-conference follow-ups:

  • We posted PDF copies of the slides for most of May 17th sessions on our website in our members-only area (Note: current members can enter their work email address when prompted); ;
  • Within two weeks, we will have the audios for all of the sessions posted along with the PDFs slides;
  • To help you visualize our annual opportunities for you to collaborate with your peer-group, below is an infographic of our annual offerings:

If you are a CLO/CTO Group member and interested in having your team present, please contact Dirk Tussing for more details.

Please note in 2016 we formally closed our vendor membership so we can focus on more robust experiences for heads of learning and talent development. A key part of this shift is to invite five to possibly eight solution industry thought leaders, whom provide forward-thinking talent services, as ELE Strategic Partners to replace our current vendor membership.

Since 2004, the Chicagoland Learning LeadersSM have informally gathered at McDonald’s Hamburger University for an annual one-day exchange of local thought leaders to share best practices.
