NEW YORK, Aug. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ -- Corporate Learning Network (CLN) today announced the Chief Learning Officer Panel titled Lessons from Learning's Elite at Corporate Learning Week (CLW) 2013, formerly Corporate University Week

The live-panel of CLOs from Fortune 500 companies will discuss learning, economic, and management trends that are fueling the transformation of the internal training organization and their role within the L&D function at Disney's Yacht Club Resort, Lake Buena Vista, Florida, November 12-15, 2013.

Thought leaders will highlight how they intend to achieve strategy-supportive growth that internal training organizations need to follow to negotiate a challenging yet promising 2014.

Samantha Hammock, CLO and vice president of American Express Bank, said, "This past year we've really been focusing on, 'How do we do that and make the training still effective?' We've been focused on leveraging technologies as well as our internal systems and solutions to be able to get the right training to the right people."

Kevin Nieman, CLO of First Horizon National Corporation, said, "We are focused on proactively measuring and shaping the culture of our organization to adapt to a complex, ever-changing marketplace. This means developing a strategic partnership with each line of business to ensure employees have the skill to leverage the strengths of the culture, so that it's easier to execute their strategy. When the culture and the strategy align, business results follow."
