    Program Details:

    10-9-8-76ers! What's better than getting to watch a 76ers game? Watching in style with L&D Philly from the newest part of the Wells Fargo Center... The Assembly Room.

    What is the Assembly Room?


    With a footprint of 23,000 square feet, the Assembly Room accounts for roughly half of the level that was previously devoted to suites for private groups. Named for the Assembly Room found inside Independence Hall in Historic Philadelphia, the upscale, open-concept bar and lounge environment boasts a decidedly historic Philadelphia-meets-modern ambiance and aesthetic. The fully-immersive experience includes two eateries, two bars, four functioning fireplaces, game action screens, and communal dining and seating areas that can adapt to any type of outing.

    Join L&D Philly for a night of fun and excitement along with the newest way to take in a red hot 76ers game. Meet other great learning & talent management professionals while taking in a game from one of the hottest teams in the NBA.

    We’re trying something new for this evening. With “Table Topics,” attendees will form groups and rotate among tables where our guest speakers will share insights, trends, and tools on important talent management topics. After a few minutes of discussion, groups will move to the next table. After several 15-minute rounds, attendees can move to the table of their choice or remain where they are for the duration. Our goal is to create an informal and fun atmosphere while generating some lively conversation and, of course, networking!

    • Conversational Intelligence - Ken Blackwell - (CEO, Inklaritas)
    • Succession Planning - Betsy Wallace rincipal - Wallace Consulting
    • Executive Coaching - Jeanette Iglesias - (Executive & Leadership Coach, Lee Hecht Harrison)
    • Leadership Assessments - Alex Winnicker (Principal, Winning Consultations)

She is also the founder and CEO of Calm Clarity, a social enterprise that uses neuroscience and mindfulness to empower people to overcome adversity and develop a mindset for growth, leadership, and resilience, and to guide organizations to address unconscious bias and build a high-performing and inclusive culture.
