ATDKC’s Fall Conference 2022 is now an incredible memory. An magical time was had by all. We learned so much from the many speakers who shared their skills and tricks. And it was extra special that we got to be in person. 

Many thanks to all that helped pull everything together for this spectacular event. And a special thank you to our keynote speakers Chris Coladonato and Ken Phillips.

Check out some of the pictures below.

Her superpower is building meaningful connections in a virtual world. Chris is a former member of ATD International Board of Directors.
