Preconference learning opportunities offer a deep dive into new skills and knowledge before the conference officially kicks off. These highly interactive sessions will help you build expertise and help you develop the skills that you can immediately put to work in your organization. This is an excellent opportunity to engage in shared learning and networking with your peers in an intimate setting. Space is limited, so be sure to register early.
This program is not included in the full conference registration and you must register separately. To purchase the preconference program and a Core4 conference registration, you will need to add both to your shopping cart during the registration checkout process. If you have already registered for Core4 and would like to add the preconference program, please contact our professional development specialists by calling: 855-404-2783.

You’ll leave the program knowing your areas of strength and need, and will have the opportunity to create a personal development plan to become a better consultant. In a recent study, 100 percent of participants felt that the ATD Consulting Skills Certificate was a worthwhile investment, because it provided a practical model and structured approach to a consulting engagement, and empowered them to ask the right questions of their clients.
This program is for professionals who are new to an internal consulting role or want to prepare to assume this role in the future. Experienced learning and development professionals and external consultants who want to sharpen their consulting skills will also benefit.
