Learning Leaders Forum

Learning Strategies to Prepare for the Future

Learning leaders are tasked with preparing their organizations for a constantly changing future landscape, even as learning leaders increasingly function as key members of their organizations’ leadership and strategic planning teams.

The Learning Leaders Forum is the place to discover the ideas and solutions that will help you meet the challenges of today—and collaborate with peers to build strategies to power your success in the months and years ahead.

The conversations don’t end at the close of the Forum! Learning Leaders Forum attendees can continue to build their network and engage with experts and peers throughout DevLearn in an exclusive executive lounge. This is your space: continue the connections and conversations that started at the forum, take a break, grab a cup of coffee, and catch up on your email. We’ll also host lunch in the lounge on Wednesday and Thursday, exclusively for Forum attendees, offering additional dedicated opportunities to continue the conversations with your peers.
