Is learning a bellwether of the economy?
Our friends at Chief Learning Officer magazine announce that their Chief Learning Officer Symposium is sold out. Let’s hear it for investments in learning.
From their press release:
Chicago, Sept. 17 — Chief Learning Officer magazine has announced that the Fall 2009 CLO Symposium, to be held Sept. 28-30 at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colo., is sold out.
“At a time when many conferences and trade shows are experiencing large declines in attendance, it is particularly rewarding to see so many enterprise learning leaders turn out for the CLO Symposium,” said Norm Kamikow, president and editor in chief of Chief Learning Officer magazine. “With the economy on the upswing,” added Kamikow, “our near record attendance is a clear sign learning leaders are back to business and fully engaged.”
So is “learning” a leading or lagging indicator?
