"The Summit provided a great opportunity to talk to suppliers to see what is available, but also to meet other delegates and share information and ideas. It was definitely time well spent and very well organised."
"I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to meet colleagues, share expertise and learn from each other. The quality of the suppliers was very good although I would have liked to meet some e-learning providers."
On average 75-80 Heads of Learning & Development or equivalent will attend. The event is UK centric - the demographic is 80% UK and 20% European. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the delegate list.
The Summit is L&D focused and within that sector a range of service providers attend. We aim to make it a one stop shop for the delegates’ requirements, so we are careful not to have too many suppliers with similar offerings. For example, we would only permit 3-4 Executive Education specialists. Between 45-50 suppliers will attend, see the booked suppliers here.
The Strategy Group programme consists of 7 x 1 to 1 ½ hour sessions/workshops. These all run in parallel to the supplier meetings throughout the Thursday and Friday. There is no sales agenda; all are facilitated by senior HR professionals and leading academics. Delegates can opt to attend 3 sessions in total. We will ask which ones are of interest in advance of the event. Follow this link to see the speaker lineup.
For the Summit to work for you, you must feel comfortable with the following selection criteria:
A £2000 cancellation charge is payable if you withdraw after the 6 January. The fee is in place to protect the event and the interest of the suppliers who sponsor the Summit. We do accept replacements but only if they too are a senior decision maker and budget holder.
