[EVENT RECAP]: Training & Development Summit Take On Society Hill

Meeting 2.jpgPHILADELPHIA, PA – The Training & Development Summit and HR & Employee Benefits Summit hosted nearly 630 business meetings in Philadelphia on March 14-15, 2016. For executives attending the summit, it was an opportunity to connect, learn about and discuss the latest technologies and services in the industry.

HR, training and devlopment decision makers from companies including 4M Building Solutions, Dow Chemical, Johns Hopkins, Johnson & Johnson and Toll Brothers, Inc. met with leading solution providers offering a variety of services in the heart of downtown Philadelphia. “This event was like no other event I have ever been a part of,” exclaimed the Director of Human Resources from Martin Insurance Group, “You receive one-on-one time with vendors of your choice and get the time to learn about products you might not have realized were out there.”


Industry thought leaders also hosted seminars for executive attendees, including New York Times bestselling author and Fortune 500 consultant, Daniel Schawbel.  Mr. Schawbel hosted an intimate seminar to 30 of our attendees, the same seminar that he will later present to more than 3,500 people at SHRM in Washington DC. Topics included leadership, recruiting, talent management, management training, and leveraging technology in the human resources industry.

“Not only was this experience great for meeting vendors, but also for getting the chance to talk to other individuals in similar roles to me,” said the Head of Senior Recruitment from Suarez Corporation following numerous networking activities and meals. Delegate attendees connected with both vendors and peers during a gala dinner where lobster ravioli and cheesecake were both a huge hit! Later that night, attendees took to the blackjack tables for a chance to win a grand prize.

On day two, everyone was back to business for more meetings and seminars. Before heading back to their offices, attendees participated in a raffle prize drawing over lunch where National Vice President of Training from Toll Brothers, Cynthiann King, took home an online one-on-one assessment from Taking Flight Learning. Other winners included Rene Persin of Hartford Funds and Patrick Paul of Anderson Center for Autism who both took home Seiko watches. Vendors who participated in the draw prizes included DeVry University, Stewart Leadership and CareerArc.

Training & Development Summit Announces New Speaker

The Training & Development Summit taking place in Philadelphia, PA on March 14 & 15, 2016 is pleased to announce award-winning author and recognized columnist, Dan Schawbel, will be speaking. 

Schawbel is the New York Times bestselling author of Promote Yourself & Me 2.0, partner and research director at Future Workplace, founder of Millennial Branding &, Inc. Magazine & Forbes Magazine 30 Under 30, and a TIME / Forbes Columnist. 

He has spoken at more than one hundred events and has conducted 27 primary research studies focused on workplace trends and has interviewed more than 1,500 people to date. 

Topics for discussion at March's Summit include:

  • The Leadership Imperative: How to Find, Engage & Develop the Next Generation of Leaders
     In the next five years, 20 million baby boomers will retire, leaving institutions worldwide without leadership positions filled. Almost half of companies haven't even analyzed the impact of this impeding trend on their workforce and fewer than one fourth of companies have made succession planning a priority. To make matters worse, millenials are switching companies every two years. In this discussion, you will hear about the top ways you can engage with the next generation of leaders so you can retain and fill your executive level positions, view groundbreaking new global research that will instruct you how to create the right leadership, training and succession planning programs that support future leaders, and listen to case studies from forward-thinking companies on how to create next generation corporate leadership programs.
  • Building the Workforce of Tomorrow: How to Recruit, Retain & Grow Your Young Talent
    Restless Gen-Y workers - often faced with unfulfilling or static positions - frequently leave their posts within two years. But as Millennials become the dominant generation in the office - set to represent 75 percent of the entire workforce by 2025 - companies must learn to keep them engaged and motivated by creating more opportunities for them. How can corporations retain young workers? In this presentation geared toward HR leaders and managers, speaker Dan Schawbel shares advice, research, case studies (including Sodexo, Ernst & Young, Intel, DreamWorks, and more), and examples to illustrate how employers can both attract and manage Gen-Y workers to allow them to rise up to leadership positions instead of leaving for other opportunities.

The Training & Development Summit is the most productive and complimentary networking event for senior-level training executives. Unlike a traditional convention or trade show, this summit introduces executives to solution providers during one-on-one targeted meetings. All meetings are pre-arranged and are strategically coordinated based on upcoming projects and interests. A seminar program at the summit offers educational opportunities and peer-to-peer networking is incorporated over meals and receptions.

Summit Recap: Training & Development Summit - New Orleans

laughing delegate.jpgNEW ORLEANS, LA - A vibrant city set the scene for an energetic group of C-level, VPs and Directors at the Training & Development Summit at the Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans on September 14th and 15th. With targeted appointments, attendees benefited from the perfect balance of productivity and entertainment including networking, book signings, seminars, gala evenings and lively giveaways.

Starting with the pre-event cocktail reception taking place on Sunday evening, attendees did not hesitate to make new connections while watching a lively corner of the French Quarter from balconies. 

Early Monday morning, following a brief registration and after chatting over breakfast with other attendees, vendors and delegate attendees begin to meet for the first round of meetings. "If I was looking for the opportunity to have a serious conversation with vendors and truly understand their products and services, this was the place," recalls the District Director of Talent Development at Dallas County Community College District. "I've already scheduled meetings for next week to review the activities that I participated in and to look at vendors."

For new attendees at the Summit, the set up is oddly unfamiliar in comparison to a trade show. The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans grand ballroom played a decadent back drop as the room took off with enthusiastic introductions. "I made some really great connections because of you! (An) excellent way to expose those with needs to companies that offer solutions - the format that features 'appointments' is much better than the traditional 'expo," says the Division Director at Mississippi State Department of Health.

Monday continued with a busy schedule of seminars led by industry experts including Laura Putnam, a celebrated author specializing in workplace wellness, and hiring experts Teresa Faoro Sertic and Johnny Keone Simmons - who are in search of the purple squirrel -  familiar lingo for the 'perfect' candidate. Also leading a seminar, Lisa Reuth - a prized speaker who shared her insight into training, development and retaining staff. 

By five o'clock Monday evening, new acquaintances were already preparing for the night's festivities - a cocktail reception, gala dinner followed by casino night. The aroma of garlic filled an entire elegant room set with black table cloths and red roses - Creole style shrimp simmered in a cajun sauce at a food station as guests mingled over cocktails. Following a dinner of short ribs, beautifully tender fish and sweet deserts, the true gamblers struck out for a test of their luck at casino night.


Attendees gathered around black jack and roulette tables, laughing and shaking hands as they celebrated big wins. The grand prize? A free year's worth of movie tickets from Fandango. By 10:30 that evening, guests were cashing in their chips for a chance to win and retiring for the evening for an early start again the next morning.

On day two of the Training & Development Summit, meetings picked up bright and early as attendees continued with their itineraries of meetings and seminars. An equally busy day continued throughout Tuesday, ending with a closing luncheon and prize giveaway. The Forum Team drew door prizes from Trainer's Warehouse, the Ritz-Carlton, Seiko and Laura Putnam.

Training & Development Summit Announces New Orleans Seminar Program

The Training & Development Summit taking place September 14 & 15, 2015 at the Ritz-Carlton New Orleans has released its seminar program to attendees and the public. These 45-minute programs offer attendees complimentary access to recognized industry experts based on industry hot topics. See the available programs below:

Leading During Difficult Times, Presented by David Pauldine, Retired executive, thought leader and active professional currently serving on the board of Quinstreet (QNST: Nasdaq) and Education Partners - a Willis Stein Company.

It’s easy to lead when times are good. Organizations facing a headwind need to adapt their leadership style to break through the status quo and make a difference. This session will discuss topics such as internal communications, planning, values-vision-mission, talent acquisition and development, disruption, leadership styles and managing in a turnaround.

Creating e-Learning That Makes a Difference, Presented by Ethan Edwards, Chief Instructional Strategist, Allen Interactions

People often tout interactivity as the great benefit offered by e-learning, yet most interactivity does nothing to either engage or instruct. In fact, most often it only places a barrier between the learner and the content by making the learner experience tedious, unnecessarily cumbersome, and adversarial. Interactivity must be more than testing and simplistic actions. This session will introduce the concept of instructional interactivity, and show how it can transform the learning experience for learners working independently through an e-earning course. He will demonstrate specific real-world examples that give meaning to the four essential components of instructional interactivity: Context, Challenge, Activity, and Feedback. 

workplace wellness that works book.jpgWorkplace Wellness That Works: A Smarter Framework for Designing More Effective Workplace Wellness Programs, Presented by Laura Putnam, Author of Workplace Wellness That Works, Founder and CEO of Motion Infusion

Workplace wellness has become standard fare in most organizations, but abundant evidence suggests that the well-worn, traditional model simply is not working. Eighty percent of eligible employees are choosing not to participate in wellness programs. Rates of stress, obesity, and preventable lifestyle-related illnesses like diabetes and heart disease are on the rise despite the fact that seventy-five percent of workers have access to wellness programs. And companies aren’t reducing costs or getting the value they hoped for because they’re investing in the wrong things: almost four times as much on incentives to get employees to join wellness programs as on quality programming that will keep them engaged for the long-term.

It doesn’t have to be this way. Learn about how you can reshape your organization’s approach to wellness - and why your role as an HR/Training & Development professional is so critical. Based on the 10 steps outlined in her book, Workplace Wellness That Works, Laura demonstrates how to shift the conversation from implementing yet another program to starting a movement of well-being and vitality in your organization. This provocative session touches on industry hot topics, such as effective ways to inspire behavior change, the truth behind motivation, and how to shift the culture. It also dives into creative tactics that aren’t being talked about, such as “going stealth” – a strategy that calls for “sneaking” wellness into non-wellness initiatives. Based on the latest research and backed by real-world examples and case studies, this lively and informative session will show you what you can do to start making a difference in your employees’ health and happiness, and promoting an overall culture of well-being throughout your organization. 

How to Attract, Hire and Retain the Best People, Presented by Steve Waterhouse, President & CEO, Predictive Index Consultant, Leadership Development, Sales Training, Trainer

The reality while many companies believe they have a good hiring process, high turnover and low productivity often say otherwise. Studies have shown that most hiring processes not only miss top performers, but actually eliminate them. The good news is there is better way to find people who not only have the right skills, but will be happy and productive working in your company. You know these people. They are the ones to seem to do what is required almost automatically and clearly love what they are doing. From sales to customer service to support, these people really are out there and you can find them. The solution in this session, your members will learn how high performing companies are using cutting edge behavioral analytics, combined with effective interviewing techniques, to build teams of winners.  

Capacity Building Through Coaching, Presented by Lisa Reuth, CEO of Leadership Solutions, Organizational Development Expert, Coach & Renowned Speaker

Language can be a tricky thing; the word "coach" has always been used in a way that builds upon one's abilities. But in business we often confuse it with performance improvement or strategies for underperformance. This session will discuss the steps that all great coaches use to find and harness someone's highest potential, and use it to win the game. Moving from a top-down coaching methodology, driven by the organization's goals, to capacity building of individuals and teams (which enable the organization's goals) sounds subtle but it’s actually radically different. 

Attendees of this session will assess the organization's Mission, Vision, Strategy and Goals and determine if the Coaching (mentoring, succession planning or development planning) methodologies being used are capacity building or performance reporting. Using Individual and Team Development Planning templates, participants will take home tools and a new working definition of the coaching process that can breathe new life into management teams that are stuck. 

Creating Deeper Impact Through Engagement, Presented by Lisa Reuth, CEO of Leadership Solutions, Organizational Development Expert, Coach & Renowned Speaker

The most successful leaders and entrepreneurs all have one thing in common: They learned  to leverage the power of many to accomplish something great. Whether you are leading your organization through innovation or change, managing cross-functional or volunteer networks or trying to duplicate yourself to get more done, the key to leadership is engaging followers. But each of these people have different reasons for engaging with you and meeting their needs and the needs of your mission can be complicated. Once you have willing participants, how do we harness the power of numbers, keep them excited and get them to own the success? This interactive session will examine the underlying components of engaging others in your Mission, the reasons why people are attracted to and stay with you and the leadership competencies needed to cultivate the power in numbers.
