Getting "Buy-In" w/the C-Suite! 


April 19, 2018

6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

Until we can tie digitally delivered learning to business strategy, we will struggle to get acceptance to try new learning approaches. We need to change our framing from “here is a cool new solution” to “here is how this new approach supports our business strategy focus on digital transformation”. 

CEB data tells us that just 12% of L&D staff currently feel comfortable challenging the line on talent relevant business decisions” (New Roles Emerging for Learning and Development, by Martin & Handcock). L&D professionals need to be proactive influencers to guide the business to solve skill gaps in the business, rather than just being ‘order takers’.

In our session, ‘Getting buy-in from the C-Suite’ you’ll hear from a panel of learning influencers as they share their best practices for moving organizations to digital solutions. 

Meet our Panel of Experts:

Over the course of his career he has consistently challenged norms and expectations to continually expand and stretch the envelope of performance improvement techniques and approaches. In addition to the large number of successful innovative projects to his credit, he takes a certain pride in his equally large number of failures and flops over his career. In addition to his background and experience in the learning and performance improvement space, he also earned his CPA license in the state of New York and worked at another Big 4 accounting firm in the Assurance practice for seven years.
