  • “…By introducing me to countless, compassionate professionals who are more than eager to help me to develop professionally. The TOC AI also energized me to take new skills back to my organization and build a better team. This was my first! I hope to be back.”Todd Daugherty, Army CIO/G-6
  • “Attending the annual institute has assisted me obtaining the most current information about new learning programs and learning management systems. The Annual Institutes, without question, are the best professional development opportunities I get. I walk away energized and empowered with new ideas and proven ‘best practices.’”TOC AI 2017 Attendee
  • “The Annual Institute was outstanding. The presentations were all very informative and useful to me as a trainer working within human capital. I strongly encourage anyone to attend and the networking ability is a real added bonus as well. Great first timers experience, the mentoring of ‘newbies’ was key.”TOC AI 2016 Attendee
