Executive Learning Exchange

CONNECT WITH GREAT MINDS innovating talent solutions for tangible business results

Talent at high-performing companies are collaborating & learning every day. Insights are great ways to build new skills necessary to stay relevant in today’s fast-moving business environment. With ELE INSIGHTS, explore the latest intelligence from your peer-influencers and forward-thinking industry strategic partners. We encourage you to join the conversation and share ELE’s INSIGHTS with your network.

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


Hope everyone is enjoying summer as I write this July update from South Korea.

Should ELE experiment more with helping you create forward-thinking audio and digital learning strategies? As you know, I love to experiment and learn new ways that L&D can make business impact. Last week my first podcast went live: Workforce 2030: Episode 6: Learning & Collaboration in the Future of Work with Alexandra Levit and Dirk Tussing on Apple Podcasts.

Now that we are halfway through a busy 2019, visit and see if there are opportunities you would like to share with your network. Here are few updates you might find insightful:

If you have an initiative or area for which you would like to engage ELE’s peers to help you influence the conversations at your workplace, please contact Dirk Tussing and let’s co-create a game plan together.

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.
