Speaker Bio & Session Description

Professor Robert O. Brinkerhoff
President, Brinkerhoff Evaluation Institute
Professor Emeritus, Western Michigan University

Professor Brinkerhoff is a world-renown training measurement and effectiveness expert and consultant. While he has earned high academic and research honors, he has also provided hundreds of organizations with down-to-earth, practical and results-oriented consulting, tools and methods.

With more than 45 years of L&D experience, he is the author of sixteen books and scores of articles and chapters. He has been a popular speaker at major conferences such as ASTD, IFTDO and ISPI in the United States, Saudi Arabia, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Singapore, Europe, South Africa, and Russia.  He is the creator of the widely known High Impact Learning (HIL) system, research-based and proven methods and tools that many of the world’s leading companies have adopted to achieve a dramatically increased and guaranteed payback on investments in learning and development. He is also creator of the Success Case Method, a proven and simple approach to evaluation of training impact that creates compelling data that senior leaders understand, believe and importantly, act on.

Keynote Speech: Transforming L&D to Become an Indispensable and Strategic Business Asset

For too long, Learning and Development (L&D) leaders have been viewed as little more than a staff benefit; a necessary overhead cost for organizations to remain competitive as recruiters and retainers of talent.

For sure, L&D has staff benefit value. A company that offered no training courses to let employees acquire skills that make them fit for job advancement would stand no chance to recruit or retain anyone. But if that is the sum total of L&D’s contribution – or it is perceived that way even if mistakenly so – then it is vastly under-leveraged and will continue to face unrelenting budget pressures.

The fact is that organizations badly need a strong and vital L&D function if they are to remain competitive - not simply competitive as employers of choice, but as an organization that can out-learn to out-perform their competitors.

In this interactive and dynamic keynote session, participants will discover why the highest and best goal for L&D is not ROI or learning, but rather is to make contributions that accelerate the execution of strategy.
  • Increase competitive advantage by building a learning organization that consistently accelerates the execution of key operations strategies.
  • Transform the L&D function into a pro-active and truly valued business partner 
  • Win the hearts and minds of managers and key executives so that they deliver the research-proven support actions necessary for sustained business impact from training.
