Interesting and thought provoking 2 days. Being able to hear what others were working on and share best practice was very helpful.
So many great ideas to take back to my own workplace. Fabulous to be inspired by so many learning champions leading our professional into the future.
This was my first BIAP conf for L&D Leaders. I wasn’t sure what to expect but have come home with so much insight, tips and tricks, networks and new friends. I really appreciated the networking, learning and sharing that was core to the entire program. Thanks to the sponsors and staff that made it possible.
Learned a lot from presentations and social interactions. Exceeded my expectations. Thank you very much!
The conference was an insightful and thought provoking experience. I learnt a great deal from the presenters and it was an excellent opportunity to learn and met other Learning & Development leaders in the sector.

University of Wollongong
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.
