Those of you waiting for the November 2010 LearnTrends Conference can stop holding your breath. It ain’t going to happen. Tony, George, and Jay are flat out in our efforts to make the world a better place. Also, we depend on volunteers to make LearnTrends work, and volunteers have been in short supply lately.
George, Tony, and I have talked about fielding a new sort of session, perhaps in the first quarter of 2011. With your help, we want to recruit non-learning executives to talk with us about how they see the payoff and direction of learning. I’d enjoy seeing a debate between a CEO or CFO who thinks learning is bunk and another who thinks it’s salvation. Anyone else game for that? Suggestions?
I just admitted 40 new members to this community. I rejected another 10 applicants because they looked like spammers (buybunkbeds.com) or said they wanted to share qwety(&@#@. Our new members are an exciting group (Welcome!). They come from all over the world and are charged up about hooking up with others.
We now have 3,678 participants. We’ve tossed 43 people out for unprofessional behavior. 15 have left of their own accord.
Our community has been dormant. That’s commonplace for groups that focus around annual events. It’s not a sign of sickness or lack of interest. It simply means we’re using other connections to get what we want. Also, you don’t see the individual networking going on under the radar in the community.
Everyone here has a say-so. If you have questions for your peers or want to vent, please join the discussion or make a note in your blog.
