As chairman of the Learning & Performance Institute, I always look forward to September and our annual conference – LEARNING LIVE. Now in its 16th year, it continues to adapt to the needs of the L&D community. Here are 5 reasons you should consider attending the 2017 event:
1. It’s now free to attend
That’s good news, right? No need to seek approval for conference fees. No impact on your budget. Your only outlay will be getting to the venue, next to London’s Liverpool St. station.
2. It’s now exclusively for Heads of Learning, Talent and Development
Admission to LEARNING LIVE is now for heads of learning and CLOs only. This means you’ll be sharing insights and networking with hundreds of decision-makers in corporate learning.
3. It continues to tackle relevant and current issues
The agenda caters directly to common challenges faced by learning leaders. Digital transformation, personalisation, social learning and more are covered. During registration, delegates also provide their key workplace challenges, and these are fed back to speakers and exhibitors to prime conversations around strategy and problem-solving.
4. It’s still a “lecture-free” zone
L&D professionals don’t need lecturing to. What they need is to identify performance issues and find creative ways to solve them together. LEARNING LIVE brings together knowledgeable and experienced business leaders, psychologists, artists, futurists, marketers, and technologists to make this happen.
5. It’s a great conference for networking
With a venue capacity of around 350, LEARNING LIVE remains accessible and intimate, meaning it’s easy to share ideas and find inspiration from peers. And with spaces like the Creativity Zone, you can decompress and think laterally about how you’ll take advantage of everything you’ve learned at the conference!
