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.


Last Thursday, we met in-person and shared solutions as a peer-group at the the 7th Annual SE-WI Learning & Talent Development Leaders Exchange @ GE Healthcare Institute - Conference Center. After Kevin Martin (i4cp) kicked off last week with the latest research on Talent Risk Management & the Implications for L&D, I was humbled by the depth of impactful insight during the keynote and concurrent sessions. Here are videos featuring our :May 2017 Triple Crown on Development Conversations for Reimagine Workplace Learning:

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.
