Among the issues that the summit will cover is how to retain the new generation of best and brightest talent by designing and implementing innovative education programmes.

This event provides an ideal forum for senior executives to explore what they need to do to develop strategies to help their organisation move forward.
“Of course learning technologies have a fundamental role play to facilitate the dissemination of information and transfer of knowledge across the organisation and help businesses to engage their people in the change,” he added.
Speakers at the event include Charlotte Ruminak, Senior Director of Talent Management and Learning & Development at Royal Phillips Electronics; Nigel Jeremy, Head of Learning and Development at easyJet; Ann Bengtsson, Group Management Development Director at Reed Elsevier; Francisco Gutiérrez Moro, Head of e/m-learning projects at Teléfonica, and Volvo Cars’ Geoff Glover, Vice President, Human Resources, Learning and Development.
