As a business owner and author, I speak at a number of conferences; others I attend purely for my own professional growth. Since we’re back to in-person events, I needed to research which L&D conferences and expos I wanted to attend this year.
As a fellow Learning and Development specialist, you know that one’s quest for knowledge is never-ending. This is true for those of us in the L&D field and also for the people we serve. Not only do methods evolve and change, but new techniques are invented to improve communication skills, learning, and behavior.
