- Mark Wagner, The Hartford

Two critical imperatives face those of us in the learning field. The first is to ensure that those we serve are in strong positions to be able to meet tomorrow’s challenges. The second is to ensure that we, as learning leaders, are active architects in building a better future.  Creating this vision becomes challenging as the complexity and pace of change accelerates. For over a decade, I have turned to this country’s leading learning architect, Elliott Masie, for his visionary thought leadership, guidance, and deep commitment to creating a culture that supports lifelong learning for all. I am so grateful for his guidance, vision, knowledge, and ability to gather today’s great thinkers in his quest to create a better tomorrow.
