Charlotte ASTD Day of Learning

Hi, Everyone!

WOW — what a day this has been!

Our morning started at 5AM, getting packed up and beating rush hour traffic into Uptown Charlotte (ask me why it’s not called “downtown” sometime if you’re into municipal trivia).  The event was the Charlotte Chapter of the American Society for Training & Development’s annual “Day of Learning” which was hosted by Bank of America and held at their HUMUNGOUS training facility at their International Trade Center.

About 300 training professionals were in attendance for a packed schedule offering 13 presentations and a panel discussion with several Chief Learning Officers from Time-Warner, Lowe’s, Cisco, Ingersoll Rand, PDI Ninthhouse and Bank of America. They also fed everyone continuously and topped it all off with an open bar cocktail party and a HUGE drawing for dozens of great door prizes. They really did a fabulous job!

My presentation, “ChangeWorks: Modern Tension Management for Human Development Professionals” went very well if I do say so myself! We also hosted a booth and met dozens of wonderful people and many prospects for ChangeWorks certification. Here’s a shot of Linda and our booth:

By the time the cocktail party was over, the door prizes were handed out, we were packed up and back home, it was 8PM — and I’m heading to bed early to be fresh for the 3-day ChangeWorks Certification class I’m starting tomorrow morning!!
