Learning & Development (L&D) professionals have the opportunity to learn from experts and share their own views via a new online community forum. The World of Learning Conference & Exhibition has launched a dedicated community section on its website enabling professionals to exchange views, share experiences and discuss the latest industry trends in advance of the event which takes place on 30 September and 1 October at Birmingham’s NEC.

Members are encouraged to enter the debates and exchange ideas on the topics discussed which include the best duration for a training course, M-Learning and face-to-face versus online learning.

Alongside the community is a blog showcasing the thoughts of some of the industry’s leading innovators. These vary from how to implement smart training, top tips for getting the most from your talent process and 5 reasons why you should invest in mental health training.

Robin Hoyle, author of Complete Training and Chair of the World of Learning Conference, delivers an incisive account of the importance of statistic evidence, and Mike Thompson, director of early careers at Barclays, challenges us to rethink how to nurture future talent.
