St. Louis, MO — Nov. 12
Kirkpatrick Partners has announced that 2011 will be Dr. Don Kirkpatrick’s final year of regular speaking engagements.
Kirkpatrick, two decades beyond usual retirement age, has enjoyed a career sharing his knowledge with people around the world. He would like to spend more time with his wife, Fern, and family and friends in the Milwaukee, Wisc. area.
Kirkpatrick is the creator of the Kirkpatrick Four Levels, the worldwide standard for evaluating the effectiveness of training programs. He created the model in 1954 as the subject of his Ph.D. dissertation at the University of Wisconsin. The model has withstood the test of time with more than 50 years of application.
“I am so thankful for all of the people who have promoted and used the Kirkpatrick Four Levels over the last 50 years,” Kirkpatrick said. “Without this support, they would certainly not be as widely used as they are today.”
Kirkpatrick’s son, Jim, and daughter-in-law, Wendy, will continue to carry on his work through Kirkpatrick Partners.
