I just bought my plane tickets Oakland/Phoenix for next month's Training Directors Forum. I am really looking forward to it. Most conferences gravitate to the convention cities: New York, Chicago, Washington, San Francisco, Las Vegas, El Lay, Dallas, N'awlins, Orlando, Orlando, and Orlando. People drift out of the conference and get lost at local attractions and restaurants.
Training Directors Forum will convene at Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort and Spa on the outskirts of Phoenix. It's a beautiful place. It's also in the middle of the Gila River Indian reservation, surrounded by Arizona desert, as isolated a place as you can find. The people who attend TDF form a community. This maximizes schmoozing opportunities. You see everyone there at least half a dozen times.
I'm not speaking at this year's event. I'm gathering stories for my book on informal learning. If you're going to join us, bring along an example of informal learning in your workplace or your life.
Photos from last year's TDF. And more. And more.
