You are probably wondering, “What is a barcamp?” Similar to other chapter meetings, all participants are encouraged to meet one another, have fun, and learn something new. A barcamp is different than those other meetings because the process is self organized. We use technology to expedite learning. Think of a mashup between stand up comedy and crowdsourced meetings. Or a mashup of karaoke and a conference. We all have expertise to share. And we all need to learn. If you’d like to share your expertise or raise a question about talent development, then we want you to submit those topics to the facilitator by Monday, Jan 15. If you want to just show up and learn, then do so. If you want to share your expertise or raise a question about talent development, then there is no better structure than a barcamp. Technology leaders drive change. Join us.

At this meeting you will have the opportunity to:

  • Expand your network
  • Learn new ideas and practices about talent development
  • Contribute to the talent development community in Nashville
We will provide the live music, catered dinner and expert facilitators. You will provide the questions and answers!
