So, without further ado, our top 5 reasons to come to the 2015 CLO Spring Symposium!

1. You’re looking to broaden your network with enterprise learning leaders

The Chief Learning Officer Symposium is, first and foremost, a learning and development community. Every aspect of the event has been designed to facilitate networking opportunities and conversations with our speakers, panelists, and fellow attendees. The Symposium is an excellent chance for you to ask questions, pick the brains of your fellow L&D professionals, and make lasting business connections.

Many of our attendees return again and again, not just for our educational sessions, but to see and connect with professional friends and peers.  We try to cap our attendance at around 350 professionals, allowing for an intimate environment that inspires cross industry conversations.

2. You’re looking for solutions you can apply immediately

When we plan our workshops, sessions, and panels for Symposium, we keep your immediate needs in mind. Our goal is for you to walk away from the Symposium having learned some new strategies and tactics that you can apply to your company the minute you return.

3. You’re wowed by our speakers
