ATD SC's February Member Spotlight is Christine Grazio
Christine started her career supporting students in higher education, followed by a position in yearbook sales with Herff Jones. From summer camps to national student journalism conventions, she quickly discovered her passion for light bulb moments as she trained students and teachers in topics from Adobe InDesign and page layout to project management and leadership.
Like others on the accidental instructional designer path, Christine took that passion into a shift from sales to training and development roles at Herff Jones. She developed and facilitated sales, product, and account management training. To bring training and enablement directly to sales reps in the field, she supported implementation of a new mobile learning platform.
Since 2020, Christine has been a part of the Quality Compliance Learning team at Philips, where she currently leads the Instructional Design team in developing quality training for a global audience across the organization. Christine has worked with her team to build efficient workflows from the ground up, blending effective project management with rapid development of instructionally-sound training content.
As a new L&D professional seeking development opportunities, Christine connected with ATD and with her local chapter at the time, Northern New Jersey ATD. She found a supportive and knowledgeable community, and served on the board as VP of Membership, President-Elect, President, and Past-President.
When she made plans to move to South Carolina this past fall, one of her first steps was to reach out to ATD SC to get involved. After a warm welcome, it was clear that joining this active and enthusiastic professional community would help her make a strong start in her new home in Travelers Rest. From rich one-on-one conversations to the 2023 ATD South Carolina Conference, ATD SC has already delivered on new connections and new ideas.
In addition to staying active professionally, Christine stays active outdoors by walking and running along the Swamp Rabbit Trail and hiking at Paris Mountain State Park. Her 2024 bingo card includes hiking to find South Carolina’s beautiful waterfalls and checking out local lakes in her kayak. Every day, she’s inspired by the view of the Blue Ridge Mountains on the horizon and by the kindness of the people she’s met in her new home state.
South Carolina ATD has many opportunities for presenters to showcase their talent.
We are looking for local and national presenters to help build core skills, share best practices and innovations, and lead the way in trends affecting the Talent Development industry. Most importantly, we are looking for proposals to provide participants with a learning experience that offers direct professional application. Content may be delivered either in-person or virtually.
The following list was identified by our local membership as highly desirable subject matter for presentations.
