National Conversation


AITD is holding a national conversation about topics relevant to training, learning and development and organisational development professionals. Through face-to-face events, online discussion forums and social media, conversations will be held linked to themes for AITD's Training and Development magazine. 

Every three months, a new conversation begins that connects individuals, AITD members, course participants and beyond. It’s collaborative learning, sketchnotes, working out loud, social media, slide shares, outlines and conversations.

The national conversation is all about sharing and contributing to a broadening knowledge base. Join the national conversation – it will be richer for your participation.
