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.


We had nearly 150 thought leaders at McDonald's Hamburger University for this year’s 16th Annual Chicagoland Learning Leaders Exchange held on Monday, October 23, 2017 in Oak Brook, IL.

Richard Laible returned as our morning Emcee for our full-day REIMAGAINE WORKPLACE LEARNING experience. Oct 23rd presenters, share 2017 CLLE Photos with your family, friends and colleagues.

2017 16th Annual Chicagoland Executive Learning Exchange

Our 2017 Chicagoland focus areas continue to push the HR Talent agenda that many high-performance companies have been successful with. We are shifting our conversations to include The Voice of The LearnerThe Evolving Learner, Design Thinking in Action, Experience Design vs. Learning Design, The Art & Science of Content Curation and Allstate's TalentShare; these were a few of the 25 deep discussions on Monday to help Employee Development accelerate and catch up with blazing speed we have seen Learner Evolution in high-performing companies.

Over the last decade, the Executive Learning Exchange has transformed our strong Chicagoland Learning Leaders Community into an invite-only, high-powered Executive Exchange of highly diverse and collaborative Leaders.

How does CONNECTED LEARNING Drives Personal Development & Business Outcomes sound for our 2018 theme?

We can also reshape our CLO/CTO/CHRO Groups into one or two new and smaller, invite-only cohorts.

For virtual connected learning in 2018, ELE will create several invite-only Learning Circles—most of us absorb far more when seated in a circle of peers that are studying the same thing. Mix with the Best—surrounding yourself with great minds is critical if you want to raise your game. The current plan is to have each ELE Learning Circles formed as small cohorts who meet virtually (2-hour format, 4-times a year). If you would like to be invited to one of our Learning Circles, please send your area of interest to Dirk Tussing. The first three learning circle we plan to kick-off are Learning Partnerships, Future of Learning, & Sales Training. Here is how ELE’s Learning Circles fit with our half-day and full-day experiences:

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.
