Speaker Orientation

ATD's primary goal is to serve the learner—the ATD conference participant—by ensuring that conference sessions are learning experiences. The ATD audience has high expectations for session content and delivery. This site will help you meet, and exceed, those expectations.

Whether you are a seasoned ATD speaker or learning facilitator or new to delivering conference education, you will find useful content on this site. Your feedback and additional resources are always welcome!
