"Perhaps most rewarding about receiving a Champions of Learning Award is knowing that peers in the training business recognize your team’s talent.

As a learning leader, you can also leverage such recognition to build the value of the training function within your organization. The C-suite loves to talk up such accomplishments to their stakeholders!"

 - Steve Parkins, Previous Director of Learning and Development at AutoNation
