The Learning Lounge at PCMA’s Convening Leaders 2011 in the Garden Arena at the MGM Grand.

Sure the Learning Lounge may start early for some. For others, 7 am Pacific Time will still feel like 10 am Eastern Time. There’s breakfast and coffee so you can get your caffeine fix and learn at the same time. And if early morning is not your thing, you can participate Tuesday afternoon. You’ll have an afternoon break with food and beverages to keep your energy level running high.
There’s limited seating in the Learning Lounge area so get there early and be prepared for a wild ride.
This isn’t your Mama’s typical learning experience.
It is a forward-thinking, self-customized, innovative, industry first, with more than 120 additional learning opportunities.
This blend of formal and informal education is the new face of learning. And it’s customized for you by you. It showcases adult learning at its best with bite-size chunks of content in short segments. You decide how much you want to hear and if you want to discuss it with others. You decide which presentations you want to listen to, when and where. Bored with one presentation? Don’t worry, it changes in 15 minutes. Or move to another theater and view a different presentation.
Want one-on-one assistance with social media and social technology tools? The Learning Lounge’s Social Media Expert Bar is the perfect place to get your questions answered.
From Peer2Peer Roundtable Discussions to seven mini-theaters offering continuous 15-minute TED style presentations with a Rock Star presenter line-up to the Social Media Expert Bar to the Supplier Showdown to the PCMA365 Livestreaming Studio, there’s something for everyone.
Come and feed your brain, feed your body and feed your soul.
Disclosure: PCMA is a client of VCC. VCC is contracted to spearhead the Learning Lounge.
Will we see you there?
