ATD Press Authors

Save on time and resources for planning your chapter’s speaking events!

ATD wants to provide your chapter the opportunity to bring authors to your chapter events!

As new ATD Press publications are announced, ATD will help you search for relevant speakers for your chapter events by sending out updates at least six months in advance of new publications and authors who are interested in speaking at local chapters.

With more than 20 new titles released each year, ATD Press publishes books on a diverse array of talent development topics. Our authors are seasoned talent development professionals who teach and speak at industry events around the world.

If you’re inviting an ATD Press author to speak at an upcoming event, consider having the author’s book included as part of the event or available for purchase, or offering it as a part of a bundled registration package by including the cost of the book along with the registration fee. Having the book at the event:

  • enhances attendees’ learning by giving them additional material to take home
  • generates revenue for the chapter
  • allows for book-signing or author meet-and-greet opportunities.

  • 25-99 books: 20% discount on member price, plus free shipping and ChIP credit

The Chapter Incentive Program (ChIP) is a revenue-sharing program that offers chapters an opportunity to earn additional revenue. Learn more at

To place an order and receive your discount, contact Customer Care at 800.628.2783 or email

Please note that the chapter should connect with the author directly for requests to speak at a chapter program. If the author is interested, the chapter is responsible for making arrangements directly with the speaker and covering the costs for them to speak at your event. ATD is not able to cover any author expenses for chapter programs. However, some authors may be willing to speak for free or for travel expense reimbursement.
