about the Symposium
What a great event to connect the L&D Community from across the country. The combination of thought provoking guest speakers, networking opportunities with other L&D professionals and time built in for conversation was invaluable to come out of the “bubble” of your work environment and lift up the thinking!

An engaging event that featured many impactful presentations and speakers. A meaningful networking opportunity is facilitated in the best possible environment.

I am so inspired after spending two days with such a stand-out community of leaders at the L&D symposium. The symposium was brimming with ideas, energy, and thought-provoking questions. It exceeded my expectations and has given me so much to put into action for our 2022 strategy!

The 2021 L&D Symposium was the best conference I have attended in a long time. There was a balanced combination of learning, knowledge sharing and networking. It was incredibly well organised and much fun as well. Congratulations to all involved.
Julie Catanach, Head of Leadership, Talent & Learning, Suncorp Group
The L&D Symposium was the most impactful ‘networking’ event for L&D professionals I have ever been to. The diversity and calibre of speakers was excellent, and I really appreciated having the space and time over several days to meet and talk with L&D leaders with similar types of roles, challenges and contexts – I’ve made many contacts who I know I’ll keep in touch with and can learn from going forward. While the event included a number of sponsors and vendors, their presence genuinely added value and they never tried to push their services. I would definitely recommend L&D Symposium to others – even if it’s the only event you go to all year!

The L&D Symposium was an amazing opportunity to connect with like minded people and be exposed to what other businesses are doing to combat the changes in the market.
Lynita Halaska, Learning & Development Lead, Lion
This was an outstanding event. Some great input from Australian speakers. Awesome networking and informal opportunities to discuss priorities in the industry. An immersive experience, all participants were very open and willing to share their challenges and successes.

Ashton Media deliver on exactly what they set out to do, they are a ‘source of insight, education and networking opportunities’. Their sessions focus on the issues of the day with time to reflect at the end of each session and the right balance of networking weaved into formal sessions. Thank you again Ashton Media for a fantastic symposium, I hope to join you again.

The 2021 L&D Symposium was the ideal event bringing like minded professionals together to celebrate connection, share, and grow are skills and ideations so we can in turn grow people and organisations.
Patti Giglietti, Organisational Development Specialist, City of Newcastle
I loved every minute of it! It was a great line up of activities, format and speakers plus the delegates were awesome. It was so good to be able to have some fun e.g. wine tasting and the gala dinner, as well as make really useful connections (delegates and vendors) and learn. I wasn’t expecting inclusions for my own personal development via the Netflix talk and gala dinner guest speaker, so this was a huge bonus. Great choice of venue. Well done.
Harriette Lawson, Executive Manager Leadership & People Development, IAG
A great event that challenged my thinking and expanded my network within the L&D community. Thoughtful details made the whole experience one of experience, exploration and excitement. Very well organised event, thankyou!
