CHESTERFIELD, Mo. – October 2, 2017

BizLibrary’s 10th annual ALIGN Employee Training Conference recently concluded after three days of keynote presentations, breakout sessions, special events, and important announcements about new features for BizLibrary products.

The conference was held September 11-13 at the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at the Arch. ALIGN brings together learning professionals and practitioners across industries to discuss best practices and trends within training, employee development, and learning technology.

Keynote sessions at ALIGN 2017 were presented by Max Meadow of Brandon Hall Group and Garry Golden of futurethink. Garry discussed how learning and development professionals can employ futurist strategies to stay innovative and ahead of the curve in their industries. The keynote from Max reviewed the results of a survey conducted jointly by Brandon Hall Group and BizLibrary, to gauge the state of employee training in 2017. Full results from this survey will be published later in the year.

This year’s networking event was held at the St. Louis City Museum, where attendees could follow up all their networking time by exploring the unique architecture of this one-of-a-kind attraction.
