My next 10 presentations in 10 sentences

JD during Learning DevCamp 2016 keynote
Keynoting Learning DevCamp 2016 in June …

Tis the season – and I’m not talking Christmas! I’m in HEAVY presentation development mode and will be for the next few months. That’s because I have 10 scheduled speaking engagements (soon to be 11) to round out 2016. Its definitely my busiest period of L&D industry activity to date. I’m starting to feel like Nick Floro (not really but I can aspire). I hope a few of the ideas and experiences I share in these presentations will inspire and inform meaningful change in the way our organizations help people do their jobs every day.
