We’ve expanded our networking opportunities, round table seating, included more interactive sessions, and invited an extraordinary lineup of speakers who will focus on a diverse range of topics.”

“AITD is committed to providing our attendees with the tools and knowledge they need to drive impactful L&D initiatives in their organisations,” Ben said.
