Presentation Resources for Learning Tree Presentation

Today, I met some wonderful folks at at Learning Tree International's Learning Leader's Forum. I presented on the topic of "Innovations in Technology and the Impact on Organizational Learning" at an early morning breakfast meeting which was a little early considering I met up the night before with some alumni and had a great dinner at a wonderful Italian Restaurant.
