  • Digital learning
  • Future learning strategies
  • Data analytics
  • Learning innovation
  • Demonstrating L&D ROI
  • Cross-cultural learning

  • Learning in the flow of work
  • Cultures of learning
  • Addressing skills gaps
  • Academic research
  • Psychology of learning

Presentation style

We're open to all kinds of proposals. Our audience loves to see a variety of different sessions: from lively panel discussions to in-depth theoretical presentations, practical case studies with tangible outcomes to engaging workshops with audience participation.

Presentations should not be used as a forum for selling products/services or for self-promotion - our attendees can see straight through this!

Here are some tips for a sucessful presentation that will be well received:

  • ensure your session reflects the outline you have provided
  • include practical takeaways - for example, tips, approaches, strategies, information sources
  • incorporate interactive, 'hands-on' moments or networking opportunities into your presentation
  • keep slides lean and clean.
