About The Event

Developed and driven by the editors of Chief Learning Officer, the CLO Symposium is where learning, training and development professionals come together to learn from each other. By connecting with people and teams who have faced similar challenges and goals, you can learn practical applications that will help you and your team achieve the results your organization expects. This conference isn’t just for CLOs, though. Get the most out of the experience by bringing your team so you can all learn together. The Symposium is held in the spring and fall in different locations each year, so if one event doesn’t work for your learning department, consider attending the other. We look forward to seeing you there!

Educational Breakout Sessions

Subject matter experts presenting real-world success stories.

CLO Symposium includes more than 30 intimate breakout sessions featuring stories from some of the most innovative executives at the top ranked organizations in L&D. We’ll cover some of the most important issues facing your teams today, including: cultural immersion, experiential learning, artificial intelligence, corporate educational alliances, performance mindset, strategic business alignment, among many more.

You’ll also receive recertification credits from both SHRM and HRCI.

Career Changing Networking Opportunities

Share stories, ask questions and find new partners in the industry.

Over the course of the past 15 years, the #1 reason attendees tell us they keep coming back is the networking opportunities that exist at our Symposium events. What began as a conference is now the strongest network you can join as a learning and development professional.
