Immerse yourself at a unique forum developed by the leaders of the Learning and Development community

A business’s success lies with its people, so harnessing and nurturing the talent within is crucial in maintaining and growing competitive advantage. The pandemic has only heightened this importance of workplace learning and development; as flexible working arrangements swiftly transform what the modern workforce looks like, Learning and Development executives need to move quickly to adapt to these changes.

  • What will the future of workplace learning look like?
  • How do you build an L&D department for tomorrow’s organisation?
  • How do we instil a learning culture that fosters proactive development and upskilling?
  • How do you assess and select the correct partners and platforms to undertake an effective digital transformation?
  • How do you build learning into the flow of work for your employees?

These are just some of the questions that we’ll tackle at the L&D Symposium on September 16-17th 2021.

Attendees at the L&D Symposium are hand-picked to ensure the audience represents the most influential minds in the industry. Set in the beautiful Hunter Valley, far from the distractions of the office, attendees are given the rare opportunity to participate in a collaborative learning and networking environment that fosters peer-to-peer learning.

Operating under Chatham House rules, the prestigious forum encourages participants to candidly discuss industry opportunities and challenges and shape the future of workplace learning.

The conference program has been crafted by a highly influential advisory board of L&D leaders. Click the ‘Apply for your place’ button to join the most senior delegation of L&D executives to gather in ANZ. We look forward to welcoming you to the L&D Symposium.
