Enterprise Learning and Workforce Development Leaders Honored

More than 45 awards were presented to the learning industry’s most respected leaders during the Fall 2009 Chief Learning Officer Symposium’s special awards ceremony held at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colo, on Sept. 29.

“The Learning In Practice awards were established to recognize transformational and visionary leaders in enterprise education,” said Norm Kamikow, president and editor in chief of Chief Learning Officer magazine. “A record number of top learning executives and solution providers were nominated by their peers. The winners are the industry leaders who truly champion innovation and transform it into learning and value for their organizations.”

The awards were broken into seven categories, with two divisions in each award category (Division 1 for organizations with fewer than 10,000 employees and Division 2 for organizations with more than 10,000 employees). Special Provider Awards also were presented to distinguished learning solution providers in seven categories.
