Executive Learning Exchange

CONNECT WITH GREAT MINDS innovating talent solutions for tangible business results

The Executive Learning ExchangeSM (ELE), started in 2002 as an internal Chicagoland Learning LeadersSM Conference at Baxter.
Over the years we have evolved into forward-thinking invite-only cohorts (no vendors) of highly diverse and collaborative
HR leaders CONNECTING, SHARING, NETWORKING with our Strategic Partners for tangible business results.

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


Common feedback Oct 4th included: Hamburger University’s the new space is certainly a game changer & Avi Kahn, CEO @ Hilti NA was especially engaging. With over 200 thought leaders collaborating in 25 sessions, we have posted audio podcasts, slides and videos in ELE member-only area. Tip: It’s easy to download the audio podcasts to your smartphone for offline listening.

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.
