New Orleans pulsates with life. It has a special rhythm that gets in your blood and makes you want to dance. You can’t just stand on the sidelines — you want to join in the parade thundering down the street singing at the top of your lungs. Can you tell I’m excited that Training’s Online Learning Conference is in New Orleans this year? We will kick off the conference with our very own Second Line Parade headlined by the Grammy-nominated Hot 8 Brass Band and our Grand Marshal, social media expert Jane Bozarth. Experiential learning dominates this roll-up-your-sleeves event, intentionally designed without an expo, where you’ll:

  • View and vote on the best Top Training Videos (Ttvs) over dinner at The Howlin’ Wolf with music by the Hot 8 Brass Band.

  • Brainstorm real-world solutions to your training challenges during breakout sessions, hands-on clinics, and pre-conference certificate programs.  

  • Crowdsource a vision of the future of learning in 2020 with experts from UCF’s Institute for Simulation & Training, and Duke Corporate Education.  

  • Get down and dirty with technology in eLearning Design Challenge speed demos. 


  • Problem solve and create a takeaway, implement-now action plan at the Hackathon!  


  • Make new connections through multiple NOLA networking opportunities, including an online book club, coffee talks, receptions, and options such as walking tours and a riverboat jazz cruise.


We all know learning can be focused and fun. It’s time to dig in and laissez les bon temps rouler. Let the good times — and learning — roll!

P.S. I hope you can join us for our two co-located events — the 4th Annual Allen Experience and our latest Innovations In Training event.
