- Our topic for this week’s chat isL&D Origin Stories.
- At the end of each chat we invite the community to offer up suggestions for future topics and last week we got several!
Mike Simmons, a regular GuildChatter and co-founder of Catalyst Sale (who will also be presenting a workshop at Learning Solutions in March) thought we should talk about where learning professionals come from and how they develop. We thought this presented as a good discussion opportunity for you to share how you came to L&D, how you grow in the field, and what steps you’re taking into the future.
- With Mike’s help we’re developing this weeks chat, so plan to join us this Friday, January 19th to share your stories from beginning to now and maybe help fledgling L&D professionals learn what to do and what not.

Covered weekly lessons & assignments also provided them w/study tips. From that moment I knew I wanted to be in elearning. 5 years later and still rockin' #GuildChat
