CIPD L&D Show 2016 – Reflection Blog

The CIPD’s Learning and Development Show is an annual event. It is the place to hear from inspiring speakers, suppliers in the world of learning solutions / technology and the opportunity to network with fellow practitioners.

I have been attending the L&D Show for a number of years now, sometimes attending the conference & exhibition and other times just the exhibition. I think it is important as Learning Professionals that we attend such events, to take time to step away from the busy worlds we are in and to grow our knowledge and understanding of the industry.

To Conference or UnConference.. That is the Question

​​So on Friday last week I attended my first UnConference. It was one of the best learning events I’ve attended in quite a while.

The L&D Connect UnConference, Friday 31 October 2014.

For those of you who have never heard of and/or attended an UnConference, the simple BUT key idea is that the delegates decide on the agenda and the topic areas for focus. There is no formal agenda, no schedule of speakers and no PowerPoint presentations. Read more
