Sunny Scottsdale Welcomed L&D Executives to the Annual Corporate Learning & Development Institute!

By Monica Churchill on Sept 21, 2022

On September 11th – 13th, Learning & Development executives from across North America gathered at the JW Marriott Camelback in Scottsdale, AZ, to connect, collaborate and share best practices that leaders are tackling in the L&D space.

Attendees from a wide range of industries came together with a similar question and goal in mind – what are the strategies to harness a successful Learning & Development function to drive business priorities and objectives?

As the roles and responsibilities of L&D continues to expand and change, the learning function is at the core for the development of their people – at all facets of the organization. Ultimately, the L&D function is an integral piece of the puzzle to help organizations get back on track after years of tumultuous change.

The annual Corporate Learning & Development Institute was the ideal setting to candidly discuss these changes head-on, with likeminded individuals. Through a series of case studies, business meetings, interactive panel discussions and think tank sessions, the attendees had an opportunity to be an active member of the conversation by sharing success stories and challenges that they are facing at their organizations.

CLOs, VPs, and heads of Learning, HR, & Diversity from organizations such as PepsiCo, WM, AbbVie, Global Payments, Wells Fargo, Siemens, CHRISTUS Health, YUM! Brands, and many others, shared their passion and expertise in the Learning & Development space as the program covered a few of the following themes:

  • L&D’s Transition to Human Centric Learning
  • Intersection Between L&D and DEI&B
  • Activating a Leadership Pipeline Strategy
  • Hard Wiring the Development Gene at Big Pharma
  • Breaking the Bias: Delivering and Designing for DEI
  • Becoming a Destination Employer: Building a Culture of Development
  • Learning with Growth Mindset: Creating Opportunities During Times of Change
  • Aligning Your Company Culture with Purpose
  • The Evolving Role of the Learning Function: What Does the Future Have in Store?

The 2022 Corporate Learning & Development Institute provided a safe space for executives to gather in an intimate and interactive setting, to effectively network and share tangible best practices for attendees to take back to their organization and implement change.

The IPMI team wants to extend a heartfelt thank you to the Advisory Committee, Service Providers, Speaker Faculty, and the Delegation for a fantastic event! The feedback speaks for itself, with comments such as:

“Overall, a great experience. Good connections and high quality of participants and attendees. Beautiful venue and outstanding staff with both IPMI and the Marriott!”

“Very warm and smooth experience. We were able to focus on one another and our own learning, which is invaluable!”

“Excellent Event and would highly recommend!”

“IPMI was amazing, caring, and attentive. We will be back next year with a few team members and colleagues!”
