A Day of Learning and Networking in Your Own Backyard

Many busy talent development professionals struggle to find time for their own professional development. ATD is partnering with the Southern California regional chapters to bring you a full day of essential education and networking so you can sharpen your professional skills, learn about the latest industry trends and best practices, and network with local colleagues who share your common challenges.

Conference sessions will focus on:

  • leadership development
  • personal and professional growth
  • talent development management
  • instructional design
  • training and delivery.

Don’t forgo your professional development and the opportunity to meet and network with local talent development leaders because of your busy schedule. Spend one day out of the office with us and get the education you need to be successful for the rest of the year.
