The following post is by Diane Fox (ATD Detroit President Elect), sent live from the ATD International Conference and Expo (ICE) in Atlanta, Georgia.
The ATD International Conference and Expo (ICE) pre-conference programs have started with excitement in the air and a peachy Atlanta, Georgia welcome to pre-conference attendees.
As Atlanta reaches record temps for this time of year - topping out over 90 degrees - 800 attendees are heating up their excitement in the classrooms. ATD offers almost 50 choices for attendees who want to make the most of their conference experience and join the excitement early. If attendees want a deep dive into content, certificate programs that range in length from 2 to 4 day programs, including 4 master certificate programs. Nine different 1-day or 2-day workshops are also offered.
The pre-conference option offers flexibility for everyone by giving the option to either attend independently or accomplish two goals at once by staying for the full conference. A majority of attendees do end up staying for the full conference.
The wide range of topics meet a variety of Talent Development professionals needs, with all the learning offered in one easy place. Experts in the industry such as Jack and Patti Phillips share how to measure ROI, and Mason Holloway continues to share his knowledge on Human Performance Improvement.
As it’s already hot outside, the passion for learning with our peers keeps our inner-selves ignited!
