|Welcome and Opening Keynote by Rita Bailey
Disrupting Learning as We Know It!
In today’s VUCA environment (Vulnerable, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) if your organization is not disrupting the way learning initiatives are developed, delivered, and supported, the chances of becoming irrelevant are pretty high. Today’s leaders want to develop innovative, future oriented, agile, highly productive global workforces. That won’t happen by using old traditional, obsolete methods and leadership practices.
Rita Bailey has been working with progressive, entrepreneurial leaders who are disrupting development tactics in search of sustainable, transformative change. The results? Committed leadership teams that are leveraging their strengths, stretching beyond their comfort zone to think bigger, and challenging status quo processes and practices.Rita will share stories, experiences, and resources to help evaluate your organization’s current DISRUPT status. If your organization is ready to consider new approaches to ignite extraordinary performance this is for you!

“I would HIGHLY recommend this learning conference to anyone who has strategic planning responsibilities in their training and development office. We are currently already working on a number of the projects and best practices that were discussed and I walked away with a ton of useful ideas and contacts with those who have been through the process. I believe I had more applicable aha moments here than in other conferences I have attended. I will definitely be back next year!” – Vicky F.
