One of the events we look forward to every year is the Association for Talent Development’s International Conference & Exposition. Next week’s event in San Diego, May 6-9, will be Weaving Influence’s third straight year of exhibiting.

“Nearly everyone who is in HR training and development, and executive coaching is there,” says Weaving Influence Founder and CEO Becky Robinson. “ATD is a great place to help our clients showcase their expertise, as well as connect with potential new clients who we can serve to grow their influence, and their bottom line.”

Heading up the Weaving Influence exhibit (booth 2727) this year will be Director of Digital Strategy Christy Kirk, from our North Carolina office, and Sierra Hernandez, who leads our Team Buzz Builder community and works in public relations. Sierra is out of our Riverside, California office.*

From Monday through Wednesday, we’ll have several special guests for you to meet, with opportunities to win their latest book. We’ll also host two special webinars in June with many of them. (Keep tabs on the Weaving Influence webinars page for details.)

Below are details for an exciting, educational #ATD2018 – and if you’ll be there, stop by and introduce yourself. We’d love to meet you!
