Speak for us at the 2023 CLO Symposium!

We are thrilled to be together again, in person, at the 2023 Chief Learning Officer Symposium! This year, our annual event will take place on Oct. 16-18, 2023, at the Rancho Bernardo Inn in San Diego. The theme is All Eyes on the Future: Building a Culture of Lifelong Learning.

The CLO Symposium is where learning and development professionals come together to learn from each other. By connecting with people and teams who have faced similar challenges and goals, you can learn practical applications that will help you and your team achieve the results your organization expects. 

Our ideal speakers are executive-level internal-facing learning practitioners who can:

  • Provide firsthand insights into any of our 2023 topics outlined below.
  • Offer perspectives on what lies on the horizon for L&D.
  • Channel insight from a longtime career.
  • Or simply share an inspiring story. 

Speaker Requirements

You must be an internal-facing practitioner to apply. For example, someone who is currently in a senior-level leadership role that focuses on curating programs/materials, leading a team or overseeing the operations of a learning or professional development program at their organization.

Speaking engagements are limited to internal-facing practitioners and a limited number of sponsors with clearly defined roles. 

All vendors, consultants and suppliers interested in participating in the CLO Symposium may submit a request for more information on sponsorship and presentation opportunities. Learn more about our sponsorship and presentation opportunities here.
