Tucson, Ariz., Oct. 2 — Chief Learning Officer magazine today recognized the enterprise learning industry’s leaders with the annual Learning In Practice awards at the Fall 2007 Chief Learning Officer Symposium.

The awards were announced at a special awards ceremony during the Fall 2007 CLO Symposium in Tucson, Ariz.., which attracted more than 400 top corporate learning executives from around the world to discuss innovations in enterprise education and leadership development.

“The Learning In Practice awards were established to recognize transformational and visionary leaders in enterprise education,” said Norm Kamikow, president and editor in chief of MediaTec Publishing Inc., which publishes Chief Learning Officer magazine. “More than 150 top learning executives and solution providers were nominated by their peers in 10 categories. The winners are the industry leaders who truly champion innovation and transform it into learning and value for their organizations.”
