Event Recap: Grovo’s “Learn Forward” Happy Hour Brings NYC’s Learning Community Together

Written by Grovo

Last week, we gathered the workforce development community around New York City for Learn Forward, a networking happy hour, on the roof of Hotel Chantelle.


The event brought over 100 forward-thinking L&D and HR professionals together to enjoy a perfect summer evening over learning-themed drinks, networking Jenga, a social media scavenger hunt, and fun photo opportunities.



Our Cofounder and CEO Jeff Fernandez addressed the crowd, thanked everyone for attending, and shared Grovo’s vision for the future of the industry. We want people to be excited about learning at work and we’re passionate about elevating the role of the learning professional as an agent of change within an organization. Judging by the conversation that night, we’re not alone.

Jeff Fernandez, the man with a plan!

It was a truly inspiring event and the buzz among attendees indicated that the future of learning can’t come soon enough. Everyone had a lot of fun, and people left grinning ear-to ear-over their Grovo swag bags as they walked out of the door.


Our guests loved their party favors.
