    Liz Nover

    Liz Nover is a lifelong educator who made the transition to workplace learning. This was a subtle career shift in her opinion, but it was difficult to convince prospective employers that she had the skills and mindset they required. Starting from a return to school, involvement in professional associations, and a graduate student internship at age 51, she assumed progressively more responsible contract roles in Instructional Design, and has worked full time as the Senior (and only) Instructional Designer for Einstein Healthcare Network since 2019.

    Marc deGuzman

    Marc deGuzman is a training and development consultant at Atlantic Management Group, based in Philadelphia. Since 2013, he has been helping people and organizations develop capabilities, navigate change, and improve performance. Marc holds a MA in Instructional Systems Development from University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) and a BA in Business Administration from University of Maryland University College (UMUC).

    Since its founding in 1974, Hair Cuttery has grown into the largest privately held salon chain in the US with more than 500 locations and 5000 stylists along the East Coast and in the Midwest. But Hair Cuttery didn’t become a success by chance. It took dedicated leaders like Alan Harden to turn a great idea into a great business.

    Alan’s extensive background in hiring, training, and developing team members – as well as his ability to continually identify new opportunities to maximize results – makes him an indispensable asset to Hair Cuttery. His belief in “prioritizing people above process,” commitment to championing company culture, and empathic approach to coaching and mentoring have earned him the respect and loyalty of his colleagues and senior managers.

    For this special event, L&D Philly’s VP of Programming Mike Brenner will facilitate a conversation with Alan that explores his Hair Cuttery experience from all angles, including leadership, collaboration, trust building, coaching and mentoring, and culture. If you’ve ever wanted a “behind the scenes” peek at what it takes to power a super successful company like Hair Cuttery, you won’t want to miss it!
