South Bay Training Professionals Breakfast Series

The Breakfast Series meets the first Friday of every month (other than January and July), from 7:30 to 9:00 AM, alternating between an invited speaker and a Text Study RoundTable. The cost is free for ATD-LA and ISPI-LA members. First time attendees or first time guests are also free! There is a $10 charge for non-members. Enjoy a continental breakfast of bagels and coffee/tea.


The ATD-LA chapter selects and provides the exciting and informative monthly speakers on alternative months. If you'd like to suggest a speaker/topic or you are interested in sharing your case studies, expertise or professional experience - please contact Anthony Markovich. Email:

Text Study RoundTable

This format, followed on alternate months, is an exciting new practice in real-time participatory democracy. A few minutes are spent reading a selected article from a leading publication on cutting edge ideas in our field. Participants then express their thoughts and experiences on the topic, time divided equally among all present. Come explore with us!

The GEMS Text Study RoundTable format is provided by Sue Gabriele, President and Owner, Gabriele Educational Materials and Systems.


Breakfast Series Location

Our meetings would not be possible without the continued support of the Toyota Auto Museum! We are fortunate to have them as our hosts. The museum houses vintage Toyota automobiles that span their entire production history, including cars and trucks from decades past, as well as racing vehicles from several different series. Attendees are free to browse the museum's collection before and after our breakfast, free of charge. The museum is located at: 19600 Van Ness Avenue, Torrance, CA 90501 Centrally located, off the 405 Freeway near the Western Exit.
