John Mattox, Managing Consultant, Metrics That Matter, Gartner
Digital natives are now digital learners. They are among us and in fact you may be one. They are empowered to meet their own learning needs, impatient to learn quickly and networked to find resources. Their drive to learn in the work flow is a consequence of the many technologies that make networks possible and information so readily available. They are learning on the cutting edge and they are helping drive the learning industry into new territory.
During this event, we will cover three topics through guided discussion.
- What does corporate learning look like now with digital learners and new technologies? What will it be in 3-5 years?
- How can you manage informal learning within your organization?
- How can you demonstrate the value of informal learning to the business?
Join your colleagues for live music, a catered dinner, and an engaging topic.

Live Music Provided by Josh Womack
Native Nashvillian song-writer & guitarist Josh Womack has been writing and performing since the mid-1990’s. After a hiatus in the aughts to pursue other professional pursuits, Josh returned to performing in 2012 and in 2014 co-founded the Psychedelic Americana Funk band Natchez Tracers.
Womack’s writing draws equally from Muscle Shoals, New Orleans, World Music and Southern Rock lineage. While the Natchez Tracers are a more dance-oriented romp experience, Josh’s solo music is more from the singer-songwriter vein with tinges of similarity to writers such as Darrell Scott, Paul Simon and Jason Isbell. When the Natchez Tracers aren’t working, Womack occasionally performs solo or with a cast of revolving support. Be on the look-out later this year for a new record from Natchez Tracers and in 2019 for a solo Josh Womack album of introspective song treatments and character explorations.
