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.

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.
