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.


A common theme in recent years for ELE’s various conversations seem to include how overwhelming our jobs are to keep pace with the business need.

At our last Exchange hosted by Hamburger University, Rob Lauber shared the following advice on a way to help focus your organization’s learning strategy to keep up with speed of business transformation:

  • What will have the BIGGEST IMPACT on the MOST PEOPLE in the SHORTEST AMOUNT OF TIME?
ELE Thouhgt Leadership

You can watch these insights from Rob on ELE’s YouTube channel as he shared the importance of focusing on this question and only this question since the reality in most businesses is that learning & talent leaders can’t move as fast as the business. As we look at an End-to-End View of Talent Impact, engaging & growing talent is key to building pipelines.

To dig deeper into these conversations, we are thrilled to have Wilson Jones, CEO Oshkosh Corporation keynote for us at ELE’s 9th Annual Wisconsin ELE Exchange at GE Healthcare Institute on May 16th.

Active ELE Enterprise Members can use their PREPAID tickets at either our 9th Annual Wisconsin ELE Exchange planned for Thursday, May 16, 2019 or for our 18th Annual Chicago ELE Exchange planned for October 17, 2019; ELE members can purchase additional conference registrations at a discounted rate for their team to join us.

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.
