The Learning Technology and Learning and Skills Show has to be the highlight of the calendar year for any learning professional, providing access to some of the best thought leaders and practitioners to anyone who attends. And it’s free-of-charge too!

However, with so much choice, it can be overwhelming. So, to help you plan a productive visit to the show, we’ve provided a round up of some of the not-to-miss events.

Challenging Perceptions

The corporate learning market is rapidly evolving to meet the ever-changing demands of work and worker. The C-suite and L&D leaders can no longer ignore that over 90 percent of organizations do not realize the full value of their investments.

All you need is Evidence

All you need is Evidence

Every year over $400billion is spent on corporate learning globally, yet only 15% is proven to stick. Investments in learning are continuing to grow year on year but performance impact is not changing. The industry is still struggling to provide real proof of impact, in fact, for the first time the Towards Maturity Index is tracking a significant decline. This is causing leaders to have low confidence levels in L&D.
