CLO Symposium Conference Series
Launched: February 2004
A trailblazing event targeting the learning and development industry, the twice-annual CLO Symposium offers workforce development leaders an intimate executive summit with a high-level focus on knowledge sharing and networking. The targeted and timely agenda, developed by Chief Learning Officer magazine’s editorial department, features a diverse mix of keynotes, workshops, FASTalks by innovative practitioners, and networking with the people who are spearheading the learning and development initiatives for their workforce, as well as their customers, suppliers and partners.
Goal: Offer an alternative to massive industry meetings with big audiences and big agendas, but little opportunity for sharing and authentic connection.
Strategy: Create a summit experience where senior L&D executives could address large industry issues on a smaller, more human scale in a relaxing resort environment.
Results: What began as a conference quickly became a community. Learning leaders come back year after year for this shared experience.
