About the event

NOW OPEN – Observer registration!

Observers will meet before the conference in a webinar with the NextUp learning and development team, including Karen Jones, VP of Learning and Partner Solutions, to discuss how the program is built, and are invited to attend our in-person segment at the Omni Barton Creek Resort in Austin, Texas from June 12-14. You will observe NextUp coaching, discussion, assessment, group learning, and networking and learn why these are core components of the NextUp leadership learning model. At the conference, you will also have access to special networking opportunities with other HR and L&D leaders.

Observers should be L&D or HR professionals interested in learning more about how NextUp curates our learning experiences. Only by experiencing Rising Stars for yourself can you witness how cross-industry learning cohorts like ours offer a completely unique learning experience for up-and-coming leaders!
