    Join the Mid New Jersey Chapter of ATD and Learning & Development Professionals of Greater Philadelphia for a combined event to close out a fantastic year of programming!

    We’re trying something new for this evening. With “Table Topics,” attendees will form groups and rotate among tables where our guest speakers will share insights, trends, and tools on important talent management topics. After a few minutes of discussion, groups will move to the next table. After six 10-minute rounds, attendees can move to the table of their choice or remain where they are for the duration. Our goal is to create an informal and fun atmosphere while generating some lively conversation and, of course, networking!

    Our lineup includes:

    • Conversational Intelligence - Ken Blackwell - (CEO, Inklaritas)
    • Executive Coaching - Jeanette Iglesias - (Executive & Leadership Coach, Lee Hecht Harrison)
    • Mindful Leadership - Due Quach - (CEO, Calm Clartiy)
    • Succession Planning - Betsy Wallace - (Principal, Wallace Consulting)
    • Leadership Assessments - Alex Winnicker (Principal, Winning Consultations)

    A dinner buffet with refreshments is included.

    Ken Blackwell
    CEO, Inklaritas

    Ken brings over 25 years of experience as a certified coach and trainer to his signature practice of “rescuing Accidental Leaders and Dysfunctional Teams”. By enabling them to connect, communicate and collaborate more effectively, they form stronger, more resilient individual relationships, which in turn enables them to build stronger, more productive organizations.

    As CEO of InKlaritas, a Princeton-based leadership and team development practice, Ken works with a diverse mix of US and international companies across a wide range of industries. Clients experience Ken as centered, engaged, and optimistic; at the same time, his work is grounded,

    realistic, and practical. He creates an open, inclusive environment that makes it safe for participants to tackle difficult issues that may be outside their comfort zone. Ken approaches even the most difficult situations with good humor and a smile. Whether he is working with individual contributors

    and front-line supervisors or members of the C-Suite, he tailors his approach to their specific needs rather than applying a “one size fits all” mindset.

    A pioneer in the 360 Degree Feedback process, Ken has coached hundreds of senior executives in bridging performance gaps so they can create long-term success for themselves and for their organizations.

    Ken continues to be part of the leading edge of the personal and professional development profession. Ken is one of a few consultants worldwide to be Certified in Conversational Intelligence® (C-IQ), a revolutionary methodology that leverages the power of neuroscience to

    elevate performance and create lasting change for individuals, teams and entire organizations. He is also an Everything DiSC® Certified Trainer and a Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team TM Accredited Facilitator.

    Ken is an active member of the Princeton Mercer Chamber of Commerce, the Philadelphia Society for People and Strategy (PSPS), and is Chair of the Princeton Executives subgroup of Beacon – Networking for Life. Ken also serves on several non-profit boards such as Mercer Street Friends,

    Learning & Development Professionals of Greater Philadelphia, National Speakers Association’s Philadelphia Chapter, and is Past-President of the Board of Directors for the Friends Camp Association of Pennsylvania. Ken is a sought-after speaker and has presented at a variety of organizations and many corporate conferences. He has appeared as a guest on Comcast Network’s Money Matters and ABC's Good Morning America. Ken is also the host of the “Insight at Work with Ken Blackwell” podcast.

    Jeanette Iglesias
    Executive & Leadership Coach, Lee Hecht Harrison

    Jeanette is a diverse international coach with expertise as an executive leadership coach and corporate executive. She is an ICF certified, Professional Certified Coach, (PCC); working with clients in the US, Middle

    East, and Europe. Before coaching, she spent nearly 20 years as a Marketing Operations Executive, overseeing multimillion dollar contracts, digital technology implementations, creative expense management and finance, production and coaching

    teams to operational excellence. Jeanette is known for helping leaders maximize their innate leadership talents to support their individual growth, and drive organizational results. Her coaching spans various industries; she specializes in supporting

    marketing, creative, pharmaceutical and finance leaders, particularly in regards to Social & Emotional Intelligence. Jeanette is also fluent in Spanish and passionate about diversity and inclusion.

    Due Quach
    CEO, Calm Clarity

    Due Quach (pronounced ‘Zway Kwok’) is the author of Calm Clarity: How to Use Science to Rewire Your Brain for Greater Wisdom, Fulfillment and Joy, one of Fast Company’s best business books of 2018. She is also the founder and CEO of Calm Clarity, a social enterprise that uses neuroscience and mindfulness to empower people to overcome adversity and develop a mindset for growth, leadership, and resilience, and to guide organizations to address unconscious bias and build a high-performing and inclusive culture. Having started life in poverty as a refugee in inner-city Philadelphia, Due turned to neuroscience to heal the long-term effects of trauma, graduate from Harvard College and the Wharton School of Business, and build a successful international business career in management consulting and private equity investments. To increase socioeconomic inclusion, she founded the Collective Success Network, a nonprofit that supports low-income, first-generation college students to successfully navigate college and enter professional careers. Due’s inspiring story is featured in The Portal, a documentary film about meditation as a portal for transformation (in select theaters November 2019).

    Betsy Wallace
    Principal, Wallace Consulting

    For more than 20 years Betsy has worked with individuals and groups to enhance their individual, team, and organizational effectiveness. During seven years with Merrill Lynch, Betsy managed the Executive Development group for a 15,000-person business unit. Her team designed Succession Planning and development processes to build the bench strength of the top 300 leaders. She was then selected to build two new Human Resource organizations. Leading the annual Succession Planning Review was one of Betsy’s key responsibilities.

    Recently Betsy has been helping nonprofit organizations develop Succession Planning processes. In May Betsy was the keynote speaker at the VolunteerConnect Leadership Forum on Succession Planning.

    With a Master’s degree in Organizational Communication, Betsy’s first love is interpersonal communication skills coaching for executives, leaders, professionals, and students, developing their potential within the context of their organizational and career goals.

    Topic: Role of "play" in learning, culture and driving innovation
