It is always thrilling to see the application of Whole Brain® Thinking have significant impact! This week in South Africa I was delighted to honor that achievement by bestowing our Big Thinker Award to Pieter du Toit for his application of Whole Brain® Learning Design to Higher Education.
Announcement — See Ann Herrmann-Nehdi and Regent Cornell of Ultimate Software Share the Secrets of Return on Intelligence at ATD Conference!/
ATD 2018 is right around the corner! This event is sure to be one of the biggest of the year for talent development professionals.
Our own Ann Herrmann-Nehdi will team up with Regent Cornell of Ultimate Software to speak Tuesday, May 8th from 4:30-5:30 PM in Room 6A at the San Diego Convention Center.
I’m always surprised when a conference surprises me. When you go to them a lot—and especially when you’re wearing your marketing hat—you begin to wonder just which one it is you’re at this time. So whenever there are some standouts, whether in the sessions, the Expo Hall or the new connections made, it makes an impression.

You have to get strategic about it if you want to check off your list and fit everything in. I knew there would be sessions I’d want to attend from a personal learning point of view as well as other activities that would help expand my horizons and spark my thinking from a business and marketing perspective.
It’s one of the top priorities and concerns we’re hearing across industries and professions: To keep today on track and stay ahead of the pace of business, you have to find a way to sharpen your short-term focus while maintaining a strategic eye on the long-term view.
At the New Jersey Human Resource Planning Group’s event on May 15th, Ann Herrmann-Nehdi will show participants how to build their thinking agility so they can better manage their strategic and talent plans for success both today and tomorrow.
Ann will demonstrate an easy-to-apply, brain-based framework for quickly analyzing business objectives and their human capital implications, and for identifying and managing the diverse cognitive resources needed to create and execute high-value strategies.
This is a great opportunity for New Jersey-area HR professionals—whether
