The growing importance of lifelong learning in today’s fast-changing world is undeniable, yet there are very few opportunities for leaders in the business of adult lifelong learning to connect with and learn from each other in a structured, high-impact way. This is one opportunity to do just that.
TBD. The photos on this site now are from a past symposium at the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Hotel, on the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, Maryland.
“There is not anyone else providing this kind of deep and meaningful opportunity for association learning professionals to come together regarding the business of learning. Tagoras has taken their concept of the knowledge, skills, and abilities required of a Chief Learning Market Officer and built an incredibly valuable learning community.”
“Tagoras put together an intensive learning event that modeled innovative practices for productive learning and surfaced stimulating ideas from dynamic speakers and the wide range of learning leaders at many types of association. It was impressive how much we came away with after only two days.”
“A wonderfully crafted approach to leadership and learning issues reflecting both current issues around the science and philosophy of learning as well as practical insights to program design.”
“The content was relevant, the agenda was thoughtful, and the speakers were excellent. I got more out of the first four hours of the symposium than the past four months of research, planning, and contemplating how to move forward with an e-learning strategy.”
“This was the most efficient learning event I’ve ever been to in two regards: (1) the number of people I met who were in a situation very similar to mine and (2) the number of useful ideas I got from those people and from the presenters.”
“The Leading Learning Symposium is a concentrated learning experience that reignites the relevance, the connections, and the collaborations related to the delivery of lifelong learning.”

Registration for the most recent Leading Learning Symposium has ended. Sign up to be notified of the next symposium.
“The Leading Learning Symposium is the one learning event that I’ve attended that truly works to walk the talk, building programming and activities that model best practices in learning. It is also the one place where I felt that I was wholly in an audience of my peers. Everyone there was involved in association (or association-like) learning.”
Jeff Cobb and Celisa Steele, co-founders of the Leading Learning Symposium talk (in a video filmed before the 2015 event) about the audience for which they created this unique learning opportunity.
Victoria Lamb, senior vice president of continuing professional development at the Global Association of Risk Professionals, talks about the value of learning with peers.
