Collaborative, practical, hands-on training, not panel after panel

The days of being talked at are done. At RTDNA23, our focus is on training that thrives out of conversations, shared experiences, and real-world exercises that transcend the typical conference lecture room. We’re making learning personal and practical, and we can’t wait to share our lineup of incredible training topics with you.

Inspiration, not lectures

If you’re feeling a little caught up in the grind, or if you are bored to death by another Zoom call, we’ve got the perfect mix for you. Be inspired with keynotes that focus on you as a leader — and as a human. Let’s talk about keeping promises, about building and supporting your team, about doing good, not just looking good. Take a breath and reconnect with peers at some of Minneapolis’ most inspiring spaces.

Connection, not anonymous masses

We’re bringing together leaders at RTDNA23. And not just any leaders — the leaders who want to invest in themselves and their team, who come with an open mind and a hunger for learning. We’ve tossed out the massive conference center and the endless rows of chairs in favor of a more intimate group ready to dive in headfirst. We guarantee you’ll leave Minneapolis with new ideas, new peers and new friends. After all, we’re better together.

Giving back to the local community, not conference room isolation

If the last few years have taught us anything, it’s that community is everything, and we’ve set out with the goal of leaving our host conference city a little better than when we found it. At RTDNA23, we’re partnering with local vendors and artists to bring Minneapolis to you. We want to leave a positive footprint on the city by sharing some of its most special elements with you and give back what we can in return.
