President's Corner - August 2019

02 Aug 2019 12:01 AM | Anonymous

Happy August!

Well it may be the lazy days of summer for some folks, but Atlanta ATD is kicking it into overdrive! What’s in it for you? Check this out:

First of all, there is ACE 2019. We are really taking it to the next level this year! One example: there are not just one, but two, outstanding Keynote Speakers!

The president and CEO of the global talent development association, ATD, Tony Bingham, is our morning keynote speaker. I just saw him on the stage interviewing Oprah at the ATD International Conference and Exposition (ICE) in front of over ten thousand people and it was insightful and entertaining! Want to know what’s going on with talent development around the world, and what’s coming in the future? Come see Tony’s keynote.

Also, I’m so excited that our afternoon keynote speaker is Bill Treasurer. I’ve had the honor of seeing Bill present to a gathering of talent development leaders a few years ago, and they were blown away! Bill’s message about creating and supporting an environment that builds and supports courageous behavior is revolutionary. You’ll want to hear it.

Plus, we have so many fantastic breakout sessions that you will have a hard time deciding which ones to attend! The line up of speakers is stellar including ATD ICE speakers Patty Phillips and Ed Muzio. When I told the other chapter leaders at ATD ICE about our lineup, they were so excited they asked if they could bring groups! Expect to see members of ATD chapters from around the southeast region. Wow!

This year ACE is at the Loudermilk Conference Center. A beautiful facility right off of 85 or MARTA with free parking! Yes, breakfast and lunch are included. Plus there is a “dutch treat” after conference dinner planned for those that want to continue networking or wait for traffic to lighten.

Did I mention the Expo! Raffle?! As of right now, this includes a free Professional Plus membership and an Atlanta Chapter membership! There is also a Talent Development Leader panel, free books and other swag!

OK. You’ve heard enough—Level up and register here now.

Phew! But that’s not all going on with Atlanta ATD this summer. Check out our calendar for the full schedule.

Hope to see at the next event! Please come up and say “hi!”

Warm regards,

Dave Adelman
