The St. Louis chapter of the Association for Talent Development (ATD) has created a real opportunity for learning and profession growth which will happen next Friday. 

This conference has much to recommend it to workplace learning professionals, with some accomplished presenters and loads of networking opportunities.

However …

The real draw for me is the really exciting keynote speaker ~ none other than Bill Treasurer of Giant Leap Consulting, who will be familiar to regular readers as the author of several outstanding leadership books, including the second edition of Leaders Open Doors, launching this very week.

For details on the book, read my encore review published earlier this week.  You can also preview Bill’s communication style and get a feel for this authentic and passionate leader by watching this short video:


Then visit the ATD website to learn more and register for the conference and I’ll see you next Friday in the Heartland ….
