A few highlights from 30 Under 30 alumni:

“The 30 under 30 program was such an awesome, inspiring experience which allowed me to meet many young people who are truly making a difference in their organization in their own unique way through learning.”  
Jessica Ostolaza-Puccio – Orlando Health, 30 Under 30 Class of 2015

“The 30 Under 30 program was integral in building the foundation of my L&D career. I am confident that I would not have had many of the opportunities I’ve been privileged to have if it weren’t for the 30U30 program. The group is always fun, engaged, motivated, and remains a part of my professional life, even after 7 years.”

Emily Hanson – Ally Financial, 30 Under 30 Class of 2010

“The 30 under 30 program provided me the incredible opportunity to build long lasting relationships with my peers and create a network where we can brainstorm L&D concepts, discuss trends and learn from each other. It's been a very rewarding experience.” – Meghan Castillo, Coca-Cola Beverages Florida, 30 Under 30 Class of 2018

“Being part of the 30 under 30 program was an amazing opportunity to connect with other young professionals in the learning field, and really opened my eyes to the variety of roles, industries, and career paths that exist within this field.It also had a positive impact on my career. After the program, teammates saw me as a go-to person for innovative training ideas, and was also given the opportunity to manage larger learning programs in my company.” – Danielle Volen, Verizon Media, 30 Under 30 Class of 2017
