New YorkLearning NewsCorinium Global Intelligence

The Chief Learning Officer Forum USA 2017 will launch in March to capitalize on business critical initiatives including leadership development, workforce engagement and the retention of talent.


Recent research conducted by Corinium with over 50 Chief Learning Officers (CLOs) and de facto Learning & Development (L&D) demonstrate that the fundamental principles of L&D have not changed substantially since their implementation nearly 20 years ago.

However, these exceptional leaders are constantly looking at ways to innovate and keep ahead of the curve developing more creative, thorough and inclusive initiatives to fulfil those traditional ideas.

It is evident that organizations still seek to champion and support the professional development of their workforce in order to maintain their predominant position within a specific market.

Nonetheless, highly competitive environments have propel substantial changes in the fundamental tasks that every CLO faces at any modern corporation. For instance, these organizations now expect these executives to:

  • Effectively develop leadership programmes focussed on business delivery;
  • Facilitate the transition from legacy methods to modern technologies to further promote employee capacitation/engagement/retention;
  • Overcome the generational gap issue when implementing new tools and L&D programs.

The Chief Learning Officer Forum USA 2017 hosted by Corinium from March 7th-8th in NYC has been launched to capitalize on these initiatives and will tackle some of the most crucial L&D topics including:

  • Integrating Learning Processes in Today’s Changing Dynamics Workforce
  • Are you Ready for Tomorrow? Enabling a 21st Century Workforce to Learn how to do their Job
  • Evolving the Learning Function toward Continuous Reskilling
  • Learning Analytics: Measurement Innovations to Support Talent Development
  • Drive Performance Avoiding the “Game of Thrones” Syndrome

It is led by Chief Learning Officers but is open to learning and development, human resources, talent and workforce professionals cross-industry, allowing them to meet and network with the very best of their peers from a range of organizations and experiences.
