It is with great pleasure that we invite you to join us at our October 19, 2016 ATD Long Island Chapter Dinner Meeting at the Hilton Long Island Huntington Hotel* in Melville. Kimo Kippen, 2015 CLO of the Year, will be sharing Learning and Innovation Stories from Around the World.
Providing our workforce -- our people --- with the skills and experiences they need to contribute to a greater tomorrow is a critical responsibility of today's leaders.
No one knows this better than Kimo Kippen, Hilton’s former Chief Learning Officer (CLO) and now Vice President, Global Workforce Initiatives. Kimo travels the world to talk about learning and innovation and to take back stories of how new and different approaches to learning are changing the way we live. He works with learning executives who focus on their people to ensure that they have the resources, the support, and the confidence they need to attain their career goals, achieve company-wide objectives and ultimately, to make an impact in the communities where we live and work.
Kimo is eager to speak with us about fundamental shifts, disruptions and emerging trends in learning, as well as offer best practices for leveraging the over-connected employee, high potentials and frontline staff. A prolific storyteller, Kimo will also share how great leaders inspire their workforce to serve their communities with passion and citizenship.
