Chair, Board of Directors
When did you start volunteering with I4PL?
Robert Hedley with I4PL Executive Director, Kristen Lépine Dos Santos
I was a guest speaker at a Toronto Chapter meeting in 1992. I attended Executive Breakfasts from time to time in the 1990’s-2000-2008 and again 2011-2014
I was a Presenter along with Robert Brinkeroff at ATD’s 1996 Conference. We presented the concept of Impact Mapping.
I was a guest at several Executive Lunches hosted by Lynn Johnston and the Board.
Eventually, I was asked to consider joining the Board of Directors in 2014.
What were you biggest lesson(s) you learned?
To be a creditable player in a business you have to understand the business and demonstrate that learning/training can make a difference to the business achieving its objectives.
You have to be able to explain in very concise terms why a business should invest in a learning program. It’s an incredibly rewarding experience when you help people develop new skills and competence that rewards them through their work. It’s very satisfying when you see someone who you taught/coached succeed too.
Would you recommend volunteering to your colleagues and why?
Of course, you have to give to get and the opportunities and rewards outweigh the challenges.

We want to shine a light on you, our members, and celebrate your career and time with I4PL. To be featured in our member spotlight in a future issue, just answer any three questions from this list, provide a photo of yourself, and send to Sarah Cooper. Please include your name, title and organization.
Join evaluation authorities, Dr. Lynette Gillis and Allan Bailey, from the Centre for Learning Impact and learn a game-changing model that will give you the professional skills to effectively evaluate training's impact on your organization. This is the same methodology used by countless organizations such as Harvard, MIT, Scotiabank and Health Canada, just to name a few.
High Impact Evaluation™ (HIE) is a new, predictive learning evaluation methodology developed to help organizations, not simply measure results, but also drive impact — learning, job performance, and organizational outcomes.
Why consider this workshop?
High Impact Evaluation™ gives learning professionals a powerful, results-focused way of thinking. You’ll learn how this new, evidence-based model and toolsets can help you to predict, measure, and report performance and business outcomes. Importantly, HIE tools include the innovative Gillis Quality Assurance Tool to help you identify and 'red flag' risks to impact early.
Date & Time: December 10-11, 2018, Meet and Greet: 8:00am, Workshop: 8:30am-4:30pm
Location: The Boulevard Club (Right on the lake!) 1491 Lake Shore Blvd W, Toronto, ON M6K 3C2

I4PL Webinar Series | Call for Webinar Presenters
Have something you want to share?
We are currently seeking webinar presenters for 2019!
We are looking for:
We are NOT looking for:
- Learning & Development professionals who have a story to tell, or a case study they want to share (ideally, this would be a “challenges, opportunities, and lessons learned” style of presentation — our participants love to hear from their peers!)
- Consultants or Companies who support the Learning & Development space (have some expertise you would like to share? Then we want to hear from you!)
If you think you fit what we are looking for, then we encourage you to fill out our application form here! For additional details on sponsored webinars to promote your product or service, please contact Sarah Cooper at email@example.com or 416-367-5900 ext. 233 for the 2019 Sponsorship Kit.
- Those who want to solely pitch their services: We pride ourselves on ensuring that our attendees are not being sold to, rather they are there to build long-lasting relationships with peers and collaborators. Our speakers should be informative, but also listen to what they are hearing, and be prepared to respond.
- Those who do not want to actively engage: We highly recommend that your presentation automatically include attendee participation, whether that is poll questions, or time for them to challenge what they are hearing. We don’t want to have someone on stage simply talking “at them” for an hour!
Deadline: December 4, 2018
Please allow up to 4 business weeks for us to get back with you regarding next steps.

Many industries are notoriously bad for women; notably, tech. But the learning and development industry doesn’t seem to fall into the same category.
In a three-part series, L&D data detective Kevin M. Yates explores how to collect facts, evidence and data for learning’s impact on employee performance and organizational goals. Part one looks at how you can discover facts about what your organization needs to win.
Adolescents and young adults who regularly use cannabis but stop for 30 days have better memory and an improved ability to learn compared to peers who continue to smoke, vape or ingest pot, a study has found.
The study by researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital focused on two broad areas of cognitive function — attention and memory — in a group of 16- to 25-year-olds who were regular users of cannabis, indulging at least once a week.
There are about 10,000 jokes about trekking around the world and finally reaching the top of a mountain, where you ask, "What is the meaning of life?"
Let me try to answer that question for you, even if I only work on the side of a mountain (above a bar).
For me, it comes down to three things. Three things that can elevate your life, career and company.
