Back by popular demand!
Now in its 18th year, BetterWork Media Group’s (BMG) Breakfast Club series continues connecting leaders over breakfast to strengthen the link between learning and development and business strategy.
Last year, we introduced a new format to this popular series hosted Chief Learning Officer and Talent Management featuring regular, virtual, mini-events starring top CLOs and learning and talent leaders. In response to the incredible reception of 2022, we are pleased to continue this format this year.
Each mini-event lasts about two hours and consists of a 60-minute panel discussion with L&D and talent practitioners, a 20-minute FASTtalk presentation and a 20-minute research segment, garnering real-time data from attendees and prompting discussion of the day’s themes, followed by closing remarks from CLO’s editor-in-chief, Ashley St. John.
This has been one of the absolute best [events] I've joined in a while.
I attended the DEI&B panel discussion yesterday. It was one of the best webinars I have attended. The panel was engaging, smart and full of great ideas.

March 29, 2023The upheaval and challenges of the pandemic, the move to hybrid work and the push for big upskilling and internal mobility initiatives have finally given L&D leaders the seat at the table they’ve long been seeking. They are being tasked with larger, more complicated strategic challenges, and this requires them to develop their own personal […]Register
April 11, 2023Your organization is only as strong as its weakest manager. The manager is the driving force behind employees’ personal and professional development, the fearless leader of hybrid/remote teams and everything in between.

April 26, 2023The metaverse means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. Some say it’s the blending of the digital and the real worlds, or the augmentation of experience with a digital layer. For learning, it can allow people to practice (even tasks or roles that are rare, dangerous or expensive) in collaborative […]Register
May 17, 2023A sustainable diversity, equity and inclusion strategy requires metrics that allow HR and talent professionals to help business leaders understand the current state of DEI within their organization, track its progress and stay accountable to established DEI goals.

July 26, 2023Organizational investment in coaching has grown substantially in recent years, with good reason: Businesses need managers who can lead teams through change, stress and economic upheaval. And executive coaching can prepare leaders and leadership teams for transition and growth and help them level up their management skills. However, a growing body of research indicates that […]Register
August 30, 20232020 research from Accenture and HarvardBusiness School explores the phenomenon of “hidden workers,” or the millions of people who want to work and are actively seeking work, but who remain “hidden” from most businesses that would benefit from hiring them by the very processes those companies use to find talent. The research estimates there are more than […]Register
September 26, 20232020 changed everything. And then, 2021 changed it all again. 2022 brought more change. And now here we are in 2023. How can you prepare for the unpredictable, and how can learning leaders build a contemporary learning ecosystem that will not only allow people to build the skills they need to thrive in their roles, […]Register
October 26, 2023We often think too small when it comes to our development offerings. We think, as leaders, we are the ones best positioned to choose the people who have the potential to become great leaders. But many of the traditional methodologies used to select leaders are very subjective. In an increasingly diverse environment, leadership looks different […]Register
November 15, 2023Heightened levels of uncertainty, change and stress over the past few years have created the need for a new kind of leader — one who can lead with empathy while maintaining accountability. Finding a balance between empathy and accountability is critical for creating a work environment where employees can flourish. This involves setting clear boundaries […]Register

February 28, 2023Collaboration looks different for every organization, and it looks different overall than it did three years ago, as many more companies are implementing permanent hybrid work models.
