Learning Forward is hosting its 2017 Annual Conference in Orlando, FL, Dec. 2–6. We are planning for more than 3,400 participants from across North America to participate in the conference. The conference is a great opportunity for you to network directly with potential customers and clients. Attendees will be served breakfast in the Exhibit Hall on Monday and Tuesday, and there will be a reception on Monday afternoon, multiplying your traffic and magnifying your ROI. New this year: Entrance to all keynotes and general session meals is through the exhibit hall, bringing all attendees through the hall multiple times.

It is a rare case when leaders have an opportunity to be students again and refuel their “tanks” with effective strategies to lead organizational change. This was my first time attending Learning Forward and I am very glad I did. All the sessions I attended, especially pre-conference sessions, were highly relevant and engaging. I was able to take away specific strategies I needed in my toolbox in order for me to be more effective in my role. Also, being able to have conversations with other leaders from different parts of the world is extremely helpful in shifting my perspectives and keeping my heart and mind open to embrace new ideas and think “outside of my box.”— Liliya Stefoglo Tukwila School District, WA

I had taken part in Learning Forward trainings through my Hope Street Group Fellowship and wanted to show leaders in my district the incredible work of Learning Forward and introduce them to top-notch, international professional learning that stressed the importance of the teacher leadership movement. They were blown away! We’ve already put in for more teachers and coaches to join us in Orlando!— MeMe Ratliff, Jefferson County Public Schools, Louisville, KY
