Wednesday, ATD ICE Day 4, Denver, CO, #ATD2016 #DENVER #ATD2017

This was the last day of the conference. I have enjoyed every moment working the booth, attending sessions, meeting new people, and dinner with friends. I have not mentioned my employer in most posts because all of my views are my own and do not reflect those of my company. But in this post I want to thank our parent company, TwentyEighty, and my company TwentyEighty Strategy Execution for allowing me to attend. More importantly I would like to thank them for being a Platinum Sponsor of the 2016 ATD International Conference and Exposition. This organization, ATD, has provided me many growth opportunities through my chapter volunteerism, professional development opportunities, and the many books and resources that they sponsor. I  have always wanted my company to do this and boy they did it in a big way with the largest booth in the expo.


I look forward to ATD2017 next year in Atlanta and hope that I will be there!


Tuesday, ATD ICE Day 3, Denver, CO, #ATD2016 #DENVER

I met many Talent Development colleagues on Day 3 of the conference. Many are passionate about coaching, instructional design/designing learning, delivering training, learning technology, ensuring learning transfer, and overall helping their customer whomever the internal or external customer may be.

Monday, ATD ICE Day 2, Denver, CO, #ATD2016 #DENVER

I had my first experience working as an exhibitor in my company’s booth on the trade show floor. I enjoyed meeting the people that stopped by the booth and learning about what they do and how our solutions can help them solve problems. I saw many old friends and also fellow Metro DC ATD Chapter Past Presidents. I did make one session and hope to attend a few more today. Below are a few pictures from the evening.
