About the Conference

Learn to Build a Stronger Government Through Innovations in Talent Development

Join us for a creative and collaborative exploration on the future of workplace learning in government, where you will find best practices, tools, and solutions to the government’s most difficult learning challenges.

By attending this conference, you will discover:

  • how to get training initiatives green-lighted by agency management
  • how agencies are recognizing savings and leveraging learning opportunities by collaborating across the learning function
  • how to find and develop low-cost options while providing high-quality leadership development options.

Most conferences say and do the same things. What is different about this event?

This conference is created by experts in talent development, designed in response to what you’ve told us you need and want to know. ATD (Association for Talent Development) and The Public Manager have more than 120 years of combined experience leading the learning profession and providing best practices in management for the public sector. Together, we have a community of learning leaders who will showcase the power of collaboration and innovation in the learning environment and help agencies meet their strategic mission.

We’re bringing the thought leaders, and you’re bringing the thoughts.

In each session, you will have open dialogue with government learning leaders. There are no PowerPoint slides, only powerful conversations led by a skilled moderator and supported by subject matter experts who are ready to answer your most pressing questions.
