LTEN this week has launched the Preferred Industry Partners (PIP) Advisory Council, a new group designed to help enhance communications and involvement of key sponsor organizations supporting LTEN and its members.
This newest LTEN advisory group was created at the request of the LTEN Board of Directors and will help support the work of the Board, of the LTEN Advisory Council and of other LTEN groups and councils. At the direction of the LTEN Board, PIP members of the Board Ian Kelly of Red Nucleus, Michelle O’Connor of CMR Institute and Evelyn Nichols of Informa Training Partners and PIP members of the Advisory Council Carole Gins of IC Axon, Jill Fenton of Quantum Learning, Derek Lundsten of Scrimmage and David Purdy of Psychological Consultants Inc. led the process to create the PIP Advisory Council to enhance communication and involvement with our valued PIPs and constituents.
The initial six members of the PIP Advisory Council were selected by their peer companies to provide input and to ensure LTEN is making the most of partnerships with the supplier community. The six inaugural members of the LTEN PIP Advisory Council are:
- William Garner of Tipping Point Media
- Rishav Gupta of iCoachFirst
- Pamela Marinko of Proficient Learning
- Shaun McMahon of Illuminate
- Mark Menichini of Springer Healthcare Training
- Michael W. Young of ScienceMedia
"In order to LTEN to best partner with the supplier community, it is truly essential to get input from that important member and support base and to seek their council and advice on projects and ideas in their areas of expertise," said Dawn Brehm, executive director of LTEN. "The PIP community has a proven history of supporting LTEN, its members and its missions, and they’ve been actively involved in growing the network. Since member involvement is a cornerstone, essential value of the LTEN network, the new PIP Advisory Council will be a focal point for supplier input and involvement in the larger mission to help members deliver world-class learning.
