Coronado Calif., Sept. 25 — More than 40 awards were presented today to the learning industry’s most respected leaders during the Fall 2008 Chief Learning Officer Symposium’s special awards ceremony held at Hotel del Coronado.
“The Learning In Practice awards were established to recognize transformational and visionary leaders in enterprise education,” said Norm Kamikow, president and editor in chief of Chief Learning Officer magazine. “A record number of top learning executives and solution providers were nominated by their peers. The winners are the industry leaders who truly champion innovation and transform it into learning and value for their organizations.”
The awards were broken into seven categories, with two divisions in each award category (Division 1 for enterprises with fewer than 10,000 employees and Division 2 for enterprises with more than 10,000 employees).
