Dr. Don Kirkpatrick’s Farewell Presentation

October 19, 2011

Don Kirkpatrick made his final formal presentation to over 800 training professionals at the ASTD International Conference & Expo in May. The enthusiastic crowd shared laughs and shed a few tears as Don led the group in singing his famous Trainer’s Song, and talked about his wife, Fern.

“I am so grateful to ASTD and training professionals around the world”, Kirkpatrick said. “Without the support of all of you, the Kirkpatrick Model would not be what it is today. I am honored to be among such a talented and hardworking group of professionals,” he said.

Don is enjoying his retirement immensely. His wife Fern is home from the rehab center and doing great! Don is spending as much time has he can by her side. He is also enjoying his new hobby, selling copies of his famous transparencies.
