Brian Hackett is the founder of The Learning Forum. After a career at what is now Willis Towers Watson, and The Conference Board, Brian saw a need for senior executives to be more innovative and active in their own learning and professional development. The Learning Forum is a member-driven learning organization for senior executives from F500 firms and key government agencies. Members learn directly with each other, face-to-face in candid and confidential forums. In addition to personal and professional development, Learning Forum members save valuable time and money by learning from others in their field.


The forums cover L&D, Talent Management, Leadership Development, Workforce Analytics, HR Technology, HR Operations, Knowledge Management, Innovation and Foresight, Skills Strategy, and AI Strategy.


Brian was also the co-founder of Apex Performance which designed and built the first Center for Enhanced Performance for the US Army. This unique approach to mental skills training for elite performers was the first of its kind. Brian still keeps track of innovation in neuroscience of peak performance.
