Executive Learning Exchange

CONNECT WITH GREAT MINDS doing the same work at different organizations.

The Executive Learning ExchangeSM (ELE), started in 2002 as an internal Chicagoland Learning LeadersSM Conference at Baxter.
Over the years we have evolved into forward-thinking invite-only cohorts (no vendors) of highly diverse and collaborative
HR leaders CONNECTING, SHARING, NETWORKING with our Strategic Partners for tangible business results.

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

“Collaborative learning is powerful. Your leaders need to actively help others build their collaborative networks.” Kevin Martin, i4cp

Our keen interest this year is to share Connected Learning case studies, roundtable discussions, TED-like presentations and interactive workshops. We are thrilled to have Rob Lauber and Sal Venegas sharing Talent Development keeping pace with Business Transformation @ McDonald’s & Walgreens, Avi Kahn (Hilti North America) as our featured CEO and Kevin Martin provide updates on i4cp’s latest research. Now that we have formally closed membership to vendors for two years, you can expect more energy focused on practical best and next practices from your peer-group. In addition to our standard agenda topics we have already confirmed some very forward thinking breakouts including Has anyone cracked the code on AI for learning? and Design Thinking for HR Innovation. Please send your proposed session topics directly to Dirk.Tussing @ learningexecutive.com.

HUGE SUCCESS! Our 2018 CLO/CTO/CHRO Experiential Learning Leadership Retreat @ Fluno Center

If you were unable to join us last month on July 16th, We had over 40 learning and talent development executives for this year’s CLO/CTO/CHRO Experiential Learning Leadership Retreat @ Fluno Center including Allyson Carter, Angie Zeigler, Kirk Halloway, Teri Hart, Sheila Milton, Newton Moore, Michael Slepikas, Allen Roscoe with an extra thank you to Angie Zeigler, Alex Draper, Tim Kuppler, Kyle Swanson and Mary Barranco for facilitating our interactive workshops. Our agenda was built around Angie's case study—Experiential Learning at Oshkosh Corporation: Moving top tier leadership from unconsciously incompetent to consciously competent to transform the culture to be People First. We wrapped our day executing a fun experiential learning team activity, Market-Fresh Mixology: Leaders of All Seasons. As we plan for July 2019, please let us know if you would be interested in hosting next year’s full-day retreat.

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.
