Dear Learning TRENDS Colleagues,

This is a Thank You note for your support, connections and history over the past 25 years!

I am now in Orlando, Florida at Walt Disney World with our Learning 2015 Production Team - and we are doing the assembly work to greet 2,062 learning colleagues from around the world starting on Sunday.

This year is a special honor and treat for me.  It marks the 25th year that I have hosted and curated an annual Learning event in Orlando, Florida.  Over the years, the name of the event has evolved from Computer Training & Support to TechLearn and now to Learning 2015.

The focus has always been workplace learning - and we have added eLearning, Computer Training, Social and Mobile Methodology, and Learning Personalization along the way.  Over 25 years, we have hosted tens of thousands of new, experienced and even about-to-retire learning colleagues. Our keynotes have ranged from Apolo Ohno, Robin Roberts, General Colin Powell, The Midtown Men, Malcolm Gladwell, Dan Pink, Susan Cain, President Bill Clinton, Jack Welch, 50 Chief Learning Officers and even ABC’s Brit Hume coming by video from the White House explaining how the first presidential user of WordPerfect learned to use a word processor.

I look forward to the fun, excitement and learnings ahead in the next few days.  As always, we will curate a large amount of the content from the event and post it online in the coming weeks.  And, you can follow our twitter accounts - @learning2015 and @emasie - for real time blasts.

To each of our Learning 2015 readers and colleagues, thanks for your ongoing support and idea generation.  I hope we have an opportunity to meet at Learning 2016, Learning 2020 or continue to connect with shared ideas and innovation virtually. 

Finally, if you would like to send a note as we celebrate 25 years of Learning Events, send it to me at   We will have a “toast” to our 25th Anniversary on Monday night and I would love to share a few of your thoughts with the group.

Learning Really Matters! It is the powerful way we as humans develop new skills, awareness, job readiness and evolving knowledge.  What we do in learning is cool and important.  Thanks!

Yours in learning,
