CARRBORO, N.C., April 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Those in leadership positions who have a 21st century vision for their education business are encouraged to register for the first annual Leading Learning Symposium. Created and hosted by Tagoras, Inc. (http://www.tagoras.com/), a consulting firm for the adult and continuing education and professional development sectors, the symposium will be held on October 27 and 28 at the Lord Baltimore Hotel in Baltimore, Maryland, with a special Executive Institute for senior leaders (vice president and above) on October 26. Interested parties can register online at http://leadinglearning.tagoras.com/.
"Lifelong learning is more important than it's ever been, and the future of the industry appears bright," explained Celisa Steele, co-founder of Tagoras. "Our inaugural symposium will provide an opportunity for leaders in education to connect, share insights and ultimately facilitate broad performance improvements via research-based instructional practices. We believe this is a first-of-its-kind offering for the industry."
With its conceptual focus firmly set on the business aspects of lifelong learning and adult education, the Leading Learning Symposium's concrete deliverables will include critical knowledge and practical skills for leadership in the 21st century. Morning sessions will consist of content pods wherein faculty will present essential material and concepts that will be put into practice during the afternoon applied learning workshops.
The Leading Learning Symposium represents a new approach in Tagoras' mission of building a strong professional network within the continuing education industry. As part of this overall shift, the company intends to connect directly with leaders and executives, delivering actionable insights based on the consultancy's many years of experience and hands-on expertise.
Tagoras Co-founder Jeff Cobb suggests that anyone serious about maximizing the reach and revenue of his or her education business should strongly consider registering for the Leading Learning Symposium. "Learning is an inherently social project," said Cobb. "The insights that can be gained from spending just a couple of days in the company of fellow leaders could be invaluable."
Registered attendees of the Leading Learning Symposium include the executive director of a major medical society, the VP of learning and development for a high-profile marketing association, and the CEO of an international professional association.
Steele and Cobb will each lead sessions during the symposium; joining them on the faculty will be Seth Kahan, founder of Association Transformation, Wes Trochlil, president of Effective Database Management, LLC, and Lisa Bing, president of Bing Consulting Group. Other faculty will be added as the event approaches.
Current sponsors for the event include Digital Ignite, makers of the Crowd Wisdom learning platform, Higher Logic, a provider of private online community software, and Classroom24-7, a full-service online education company.
Since its founding nearly 10 years ago, Tagoras has provided expert consulting and advisory services, speaking engagement and informative workshops, and highly regarded, research-based publications. The company's mission is to help continuing education and professional development organizations reach their full potential, in terms of both market share and impact of offerings.
The upcoming symposium will be officially announced at the May 1 Leading Learning Spring Summit 2015 in Washington, DC. More information on the summit is available at http://www.tagoras.com/summit2015. Tagoras expects to announce more upcoming events throughout 2015 and beyond.
