    Moment of Truth: Not all business professionals get access to unlimited budgets. Okay, no one really does. Somewhere, sometime, we all end up searching for a tool or resource to help us get the job done. Not all tools, though, bring the same value. And every job requires a different tool or toolkit. So where can we find the best free or low-cost resources to help us achieve our goals? Well, we could spend countless hours searching on the internet. Or posting in vein on LinkedIn. But wouldn't it be awesome to find things from our peers - to hear and see what others use when their budgets run dry?

    Join the Learning & Development professionals for this one of a kind event in November. Open mic time! Bring your favorite tool(s) and get 5-10 minutes to talk about it in front of your peers, showcasing how it works and how it helps you claim "mission accomplished". Information & registration here on our website!

    Two things to do this weekend:

    1. Set your clocks back Saturday night before you go to sleep

    2. Register for L&D Philly's last workshop of the year.

    You can't create compelling, interactive, engaging, and effective training, talent management, or coaching programs without great tools. And no one gets an unlimited budget. So check out and come to our workshop on November 10th at Harrisburg University's new Philadelphia campus to see what your peers use that's free or low-cost. And maybe share something from your bag of tricks (or treats). Information & registration here on our website.

    I said it once and I'll say it again - you are only as good as the tools you in your toolbox. And let's face it - most of us do not possess an unlimited budget. So bring your favorite low-cost or free design, photo/video/audio editing, project management, or other tool with you to our next workshop on November 10th and share it with the crowd! And see what others' use to get the job done and done well, without breaking the bank! Details and information here on our website. Plus, get a tour of Harrisburg University's brand new Philadelphia campus at 16th and Spring Garden. And as a special bonus - learn about Padcaster - an all-in-one portable video studio that gives you production quality while only using your....iPad!!!!! #design #instructionaldesign #freeresources

    When it comes to your career/business you fall into one of only a few categories. You either run your own business or you want to one day. currently have a job or you need on (or are looking for one while employed)

    Regardless of where you fall on the spectrum, check out L&D Philly's one-two punch of TWO Monthly Workshops this October.

    On Saturday October 13th from 9am to 12pm at Drexel University it's "Be Your Own Boss -Expert Advice on Running a Successful Business". Listen, interact with, and ask questions of a panel of highly successful small business owners and consultants with 10,15,20,25 or more years of experience, including financial, tax, and marketing experts. If you run your own business, live as a consultant, or spend your days as a contractor - you not get a better opportunity to meet the pros!

    On Saturday October 20th, again from 9 to 12 at Drexel it's "Job Market 2019 - a State of the Union". Come and meet and learn from and get sage advice from a panel of seasoned talent acquisition leaders and career coaches about the current marketplace, recruiting trends, tools, resume tips, and notes on how to find the job you want, land the interview, and knock it out of the park!
