The 2015 Leading Learning Spring Summit held on May 1 in Washington, DC, was a great success. We’re grateful to Digital Ignite/YM Learning for sponsoring the event and to Tony Bingham, president and CEO of the Association for Talent Development, for speaking about major trends in talent development and how these impact organizations in the business of lifelong learning. Below are videos from the event, and a link to the slides that Tony used during his talk.
Jeff Cobb, Tagoras co-founder and managing director, opens the Leading Learning Spring Summit by highlighting the power of community and the three reasons that trade and professional organizations are the best candidates for leading the market for lifelong learning, continuing education, and professional development.
Tamer Ali, co-founder of Digital Ignite and senior vice president of YM Learning, discusses the critical importance of expertise in today’s world and the role that associations can play as trusted sources of expertise.
Tagoras co-founder and managing director Celisa Steele discusses how forward-thinking associations should consider the lessons of responsive design and integrate these with maximizing the reach, revenue, and impact of their education programs.
Tony Bingham, president and CEO of the Association for Talent Development (ATD), discusses the major emerging trends in the global market for talent and how these may impact trade and professional associations. Introduction by Celisa Steele, Tagoras.
Hosted by Tagoras, Leading Learning is the community for leaders in the business of lifelong learning and continuing education. Note: This event has now passed, but we encourage you to sign up to be notified for our next annual Leading Learning Symposium.
What does the market for continuing education and professional development look like now and in the coming years? Join peers from the trade and professional association world on May 1 to gain insight into the future of the lifelong learning market and discuss your opportunities and challenges.
The featured guest speaker for the summit will be Tony Bingham, president and CEO of the Association for Talent Development (formerly ASTD). During lunch, Tony will discuss major trends in talent development and how these may impact organizations in the business of lifelong learning. Given ATD’s unique position both as an association that provides continuing education and professional development and as the association for people in the learning and development sector, Tony offers a perspective that we know will be of tremendous value to the Leading Learning community.
In addition to hearing from Tony, Tagoras principals Jeff Cobb and Celisa Steele will share some key insights from their consulting work and research in the trade and professional association sector and will facilitate discussion. All in all, a very high value way to spend a Friday lunch.
Doors will open at [11:30] and there will be time for networking and discussion. At around [12:00], lunch will be served. During lunch, Tony Bingham will share his insights about the market for continuing education and professional development and Tagoras principals Jeff Cobb and Celisa Steele will offer observations from their extensive work with trade and professional association education businesses.
This is intended to be a high value, but informal event. What you get out of it will be directly proportional to the ideas, questions, and willingness to engage with your peers that you bring to it.

About Leading Learning and Tagoras
Tagoras is an independent research and consulting firm that specializes in the global market for continuing education and professional development. You can find out much more about us on our Web site.
In the course of working with many organizations over many years, we have found that there are relatively limited opportunities for leaders and professionals in the business of lifelong learning to connect, learn together, and share ideas and expertise. The Leading Learning community is part of our effort to address this situation. At Leading Learning events, association leaders can explore emerging opportunities in the lifelong learning market and develop strategies for growing their educational programs and market presence.
We are grateful to Digital Ignite for helping to underwrite the costs of this Leading Learning event.
