Becoming a trusty business partner to managers is essential to your TD team's success. Without a strong alliance with managers, it is difficult to gain critical support for any training and development initiatives.

Join us as we welcome long-time Bay Colonies member and co-author of the July TD Magazine cover story, Don’t Let Managers DownJamie Millard, to discuss how to apply proven skills and strategies to form valued, reliable, and impactful workforce development partnerships with managers. In addition, Jamie will provide some tips for presenting at ATD conferences and publishing posts, blogs, articles and books through ATD.
