Executive Learning Exchange

Our strong learning leader & talent development community, The Executive Learning ExchangeSM (ELE), started in 2002 as an internal Chicagoland Learning Leaders Conference at Baxter. Over the years we have evolved into two strong invite-only cohorts (no vendors)—one based in Chicagoland and the other in Wisconsin—of highly diverse and collaborative leaders.

We hope you can join one of the following upcoming peer-networking events: We continue to add collaboration strength with our community.


To kick off the 2nd half of 2017, we are looking forward to enjoy the summer with your peers and give back by helping local & global communities for investing in the future. Please let me know if any of these are of interest to you:

We also have registration open for our 16th Annual Chicagoland Learning & Talent Development Leaders Exchange @ Hamburger University (23-OCT-2017) and welcome you to submit any specific agenda topics of interest. You can see our October 23rd featured speakers here.

Looking forward to connect with you in-person soon as we continue to cultivate an amazing high-performance, local peer-group.

If you are a CLO/CTO Group member and interested in having your team present, please contact Dirk Tussing for more details.

Please note in 2016 we formally closed our vendor membership so we can focus on more robust experiences for heads of learning and talent development. A key part of this shift is to invite five to possibly eight solution industry thought leaders, whom provide forward-thinking talent services, as ELE Strategic Partners to replace our current vendor membership.

Since 2004, the Chicagoland Learning LeadersSM have informally gathered at McDonald’s Hamburger University for an annual one-day exchange of local thought leaders to share best practices.
