Enterprise Learning! Conference & Expo 2011 Hosted Two Nationally Recognized Education Innovators

Named “Innovators in Education” by MSNBC on the September 22nd broadcast, both Sal Khan and John Hunter shared their vision of education’s future as keynotes at the Enterprise Learning! Conference & Expo on September 28th and 29th, 2011. The Enterprise Learning! Conference & Expo’s mission is to help executives empower teams, engage employees and evolve their organizations with learning and workplace technologies.

“Both Sal Khan and John Hunter represent the best in enterprise learning – Innovation, Passion and the Power of One. They illustrate how one idea can ripple to impact millions. After hearing them speak, you are motivated to re-think, re-design and re-invent how we educate our teams, partners and suppliers,” reports Joe DiDonato, ELCE Conference Chairman.

Sal Khan started the Khan Academy with less than $100 and a will to help cousins who needed tutoring. Now, Khan Academy YouTube like sessions are viewed by 65 million times a month. John Hunter is a 4th grade teacher who created “The World Peace” board game and borne our next generation of leaders out of his 4th grade class.

“All of the attendees were riveted and absolutely captivated by Sal and John. It’s exciting to ponder how their ideas will impact enterprise education going forward. After Sal’s session, he joined the Leadership Forum, where executives discussed how they could leverage his innovations in their own organizations, as well as support the Khan Academy going forward. The discussion was lively, motivating, and inspirational as executives reflected on how the Academy has affected their own lives,” reported DiDonato.  “We also got to preview John’s new documentary, “World Peace and other 4th Grade Achievements,” and many of the attendees were moved to tears of joy.

“This $160 billion industry needed ELCE to provide a venue where buyers and sellers can convene to showcase the possibilities, and the innovations of leaders like Sal Khan and John Hunter,” reported Catherine Upton, Group Publisher/CEO, Elearning! Media Group.

Altogether, ELCE attracted over 2000 onsite and virtual attendees. Many from the public sector are now grappling with re-inventing training from a classroom to virtual and social platforms.  The high quality content also attracted very high level executives in attendance. Approximately two thirds of attendees held management titles, and 17% were Chief level executives

I had the pleasure of attending the ELCE this week, and I thought it was very well done. The sessions all had something to offer. I have been in the E-Learning/LMS space for about 15 years, and I got a lot of value from the presentations,”—William Weber, Catholic Healthcare West

Thanks for the invite and opportunity at the Enterprise Learning Conference. I met plenty of smart people…,” Chuck Hamilton, IBM’s Center for Advanced Learning

“We thank our sponsors and speakers for supporting ELCE. The solid content was the result of an active ELCE Conference Advisory Board and 400+ power users who voiced their conference needs,“ adds DiDonato. “The choice of keynotes was unanimous and no one in attendance was disappointed.”

The enterprise learning sector is estimated to be $160 billion industry. Public and private sector investments in learning and workplace technologies are experiencing double-digit growth, as organizations strive to drive performance efficiently.  ”The average government learning buyer invests $8.6 million on learning and workplace technologies and $14.6 million on enterprise learning, annually. And, the corporate buyer averages $1.45 million and $4 million respectively,” reports Upton. 

The Enterprise Learning! Conference & Expo hosted more than 70 sessions, 80 experts and 50 solution providers. Attendees heralded from Department of Defense to Xerox to hear from executives who leveraged workplace technologies to drive enterprise performance.  Sessions were hosted by America Automobile Association, Orbitz Worldwide, Philips Healthcare, WellPoint, as well as the Department of Veterans Affairs. Topics ranged from how to buy the best technology, to culture change, and social and mobile learning case studies.

In addition, the Conference hosted the Best of Elearning! Awards Luncheon, and presented five sessions that showcased winning solutions.  The Enterprise Learning! Conference & Expo was also home of the co-located Learning! Leadership Summit offering VIPs networking, meet and greets with high profile keynotes, and candid roundtable discussions with C-level executives.
