One of the most important insights from David Forman’s best-selling book “Fearless HR—Driving Business Results” is that functional leadership is no longer enough.  To be truly respected and credible, L&D leaders must be seen as business leaders, not just L&D experts.  So how does this happen?  Come to hear Forman address the important table stakes that must be played and then the four ways that L & D can attack the most important issues faced by businesses today.

David C Forman, the author of "Fearless HR," is the President of Sage Learning Systems and former Chief Learning Officer of The Human Capital Institute.  The courses he has developed and taught for HCI have been taken by thousands of HR professionals all over the world.  In 2002, David worked with SHRM and many influential thought leaders to create materials to support the GPHR certification program.

Prior to these experiences, David spent 25 years in the training industry working with large global organizations to improve the knowledge, skills and performance of their people. Major clients include FedEx, IBM, DuPont, Microsoft, SAP, American Express, PwC, Ford, Prudential, Apple, Allstate Insurance and the University of Farmers.  In 1984, David had the unique opportunity to work with Apple on the release of the Macintosh; and several years later to help IBM streamline and cross-train over 22,000 manufacturing employees.

David has written more than 40 articles on talent management, analytics, strategic human resources, learning systems, high-performance cultures and leadership. He has also spoken at many national and global talent and leadership conferences.
