October Chapter Meeting:
Stop the Clock! 10 Core Drivers for Reducing Stress
and Working Smarter
Date: October 18, 2017
Time: 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Location: Workday
1180 W. Swedesford Rd., Suite 210, Berwyn, PA 19312
As talent development professionals and individuals who live full lives outside of the office, our responsibilities, activities, and stresses can leave us feeling physically depleted, emotionally drained, and mentally distracted.  During this interactive presentation, Penny Zenker will share the 10 Productivity Drivers to shift those emotions, avoid procrastination and perfectionism, and get into the Productivity Zone.

The Productivity Zone is where efficiency and productivity meet. Productivity Drivers will help you to think and act more strategically – which makes you work smarter. You will walk away from the sessions having assessed yourself in the 10 core drivers, identifying performance gaps and creating an action plan to close the biggest gap.

2017 Annual Regional Conference for Professional Development

Thanks for joining ATD-PHL for our 6th Annual Regional Conference for Professional Development which took place on Wednesday, September 13, 2017 at Drexel University’s LeBow College of Business. Over 130 attendees learned about becoming exceptional L&D talent from our fantastic keynote speaker, Jeffrey Orlando, and then proceeded to one of three breakout sessions to further their knowledge building. Attendees also engaged with exhibitors and sponsors while networking with L&D professionals from across the Greater Philadelphia region. What an incredible half-day of learning!

Member Testimonial

The first annual ATD Philadelphia regional conference in 2012 came at exactly the right time for me. I was beginning to transition from a career as a face-to-face adult learning director at a local college into workplace education. A bigger shift than I anticipated. I found out about the conference two days before it was to be held, and signed up. That day I met wonderful people from varied corners of the field, and attended captivating sessions. I left convinced that I was moving in the right direction. I kept coming back for more. I immediately was inspired to become active on the conference program committee. My participation affords me the opportunity to interact with thought leaders in the Training & Development field; this is a much richer experience than just being in the audience. 

It’s not easy to change careers in midlife. My friends through ATD-PHL have been trusted resources pointing me to new and interesting positions, and have helped me get noticed. In fact, I landed in my current position because an ATD presenter/mentor knew someone who I wanted to know.

I almost always feel the SIG gatherings and chapter events are worthwhile. Sometimes I attend simply because I enjoy the networking, camaraderie, and friendship!

I highly recommend membership. No regrets! Please join me.
