Great to hear from some of the top leaders in the industry and how they are tackling the big challenges
The summit was a great opportunity to learn from others and to hear lessons learned that could help others on their journey. It was great to hear and contribute to conversations about transformation and the future of work.
A great conference with opportunities to connect with other L&D professionals. Love hearing what other companies are doing. So many ideas but also reaffirming that we are on the right track.
Maurice Blackburn Lawyers
It was a well organized event with lots of networking opportunities. Good to understanding more about the future trends, challenges and possible solutions within L&D. I definitely get few ideas out of this event to discuss with our colleagues.
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.
