Do you have great stories of how the dramatic changes we've all experienced have fostered innovation in Talent Development? We want to hear about your journey and lessons learned!
“Dramatic Change” can mean anything! Have you had a looming deadline? A reduction in budget, but no reduction in expectations for you or your team? Have you noticed an area of your business where training or development was “chaotic”, or needed improvement? Did you need to react quickly to new circumstances created by COVID-19?
Submit a proposal to share your story at ATDKC's Fall Conference 2020! At our first of its kind virtual conference will include everything you expect from our traditional fall gathering and so much more.
Our leading edge virtual conference technology makes it easy for you to present from anywhere in Kansas City or from across the country or around the world - plus, we'll provide a dedicated support resource for your session.
Applications are due by midnight on September 4th. We can't wait to hear from you!
