The Talent Development Think Tank Community is where talent development professionals come together to share best practices, discover the latest trends, hear from experts and solve challenges so that they can perform better in their jobs and help their companies develop their people more effectively. If you are looking for new ways to engage and develop your people and accelerate your career success, this is the place for you. We have two levels to accommodate the different phases of where you are in your talent development career and journey

Being a part of this community has made “going solo” A LOT less lonely. I really treasure the relationships and knowledge I’ve gained from this beautiful community Andy put together!

As humans, we are not meant to do things on our own. We need community.

This is especially true in Talent Development. It’s not productive or healthy to try to do things all on your own. But most memberships out there do not provide the real, authentic, trusting relationships that we all crave. The Talent Development Think Tank Community is here to put an end to that noise! Much like our conference, this community is built on trust, authenticity and the need for us to work with and support each other.

The  TDTT community is a place to connect, grow, learn from colleagues and experts and solve real challenges so that you can achieve more success in your career and feel more fulfillment along the way.

The TDTT Community provides an opportunity for you to:

Connect with other talent development professionals to ask questions, engage in conversations about challenges, share ideas, and learn the latest trends so you are always at the forefront of new solutions and best practices to save you the time and stress of figuring it out on your own.

Get insider information from bestselling authors, Chief Learning Officers, Chief People Officers and experts from different areas around DEI and Talent Development who are making waves in large companies so that you can strengthen your current strategies.

Reduce the time it takes to solve challenges and gain innovative ideas to overcome the issues that slow you down the most so that you can develop stronger leaders and increase sales.

Achieve organizational goals and formulate a plan and actionable steps to take your company to the next level so that you can prepare for the upcoming workplace changes including 'return to office' plans.

Grow your career through networking and personal and professional development resources to enhance your leadership skills so that you are leading by example for your team and feeling fulfilled in your life.

Improve your diversity, inclusion, and belonging at your workplace to build a connected, resilient, and driven culture so that you can reduce turnover and effectively develop your talent to their highest potential.

This community has been extremely valuable to me - allowing me to build my network in a time when traditional networking activities are not possible. It has been a sounding board for ideas, a way to get input and suggestions, and learn about trends in talent development.

Weekly Calls with Guest Experts

Inside the Talent Development Think Tank Community, we host live Zoom calls each week. Calls range from featuring guest experts such as Liz Wiseman and open forum calls (a member favorite!) where members get to collaborate and mastermind on different topics and challenges they are working on. We also have several member-led sessions where we give our members a chance to showcase their expertise and answer questions from other members who want to learn from them. One thing we’ve found by doing this the past two years is that our members love learning from each other!

Networking Sessions

Inside the community, we hold monthly speed networking sessions to give everyone in the community an opportunity to meet and chat with other members and get to know each other. We believe there is nothing more critical to career success than having a great network and we want to help. Members have walked away with friendships, business partners, and collaborations.

"TTDT has been vital in making connections outside my organization with others in the L&D field. The conversations are genuine and informative. The open networking and topic-specific sessions are great jump-starters for deeper conversations 1:1 with professionals I've met through the group. It's great that we can access meeting recordings - and Andy and team always have a fabulous line-up of speakers. This community is well-worth the time and money!"
