What is the purpose of the CLO Breakfast Club series?
The CLO Breakfast Club series presents an environment for local learning executives to discuss the issues that drive enterprise education, share best practices and analyze the strategic alignment of business goals and workforce education. Event registrants are polled prior to the event on the issues currently facing their learning organizations. Chief Learning Officer editors in turn formulate discussion topics based on the needs of each local audience.
Throughout the course of its more than five year existence, the CLO Breakfast Club has evolved into the preferred regional meeting place for learning executives and their corporate peers. What began as a regional road show has quickly become a community.
What is the target audience?
- Chief Executive Officer
- Chief Learning Officer
- SVP/VP of Learning and Development
- SVP/VP of Talent Management
- SVP/VP of Global Human Resources
- Director of Learning
- Director of Workforce Development
- Senior Manager of Learning and Development
How is the event structured?
The CLO Breakfast Club series is a regional discussion forum consisting of a panel of industry experts who travel to each city and are moderated by a local Chief Learning Officer. The panelists set the stage for each discussion topic and then throw it out to the audience for conversation.
What is the program focus of the event?
The program is designed to address the needs of those at the senior level of learning and development. We are most interested in having you share the solution your organization crafted and implemented to solve a pressing learning/business challenge.
Previous experience moderating a panel and/or discussion forum is preferred.
