As businesses depend heavily on the capabilities of their people to gain a competitive advantage in an increasingly complex landscape, L&D leaders must seize the opportunity to transform L&D approaches to prepare their people to meet rising business expectations, and enhance the learner experience to drive engagement, performance and career development. The event will gather 80+ L&D leaders from different industries to exchange ideas and challenge current thinking to prepare for tomorrow’s demands.

This 2 day event was a great way to network and meet like ‘minded people’ who are passionate about learning and happy to share the successes and challenges in their organisations. The presenters provided interesting stories, data and information based on real business problems and were happy to share things that worked for them. It was a very well run professional event and well worth my time.
