L&D LEADer Summit

February 6th - 7th | Madrid, Spain

Welcome to the L&D LEADer Summit

Learning today has become a business-critical priority. Skilled employees, exceptional leaders and knowledge are important intangible assets for competitive company. Emerging trends like quickly evolving environments, disruptive technologies, the democratization and digitization of information, and a new war for talent have elevated the importance of the learning and development (L&D) function. Technology and accompanying business realities have not only changed the way we work, but also the way we learn. The way we used to do things no longer works very well. Forward-thinking organizations must adapt their approach to learning and development.

The goal of the Summit is to develop actionable insights useful to Learning and Development (L&D) department, HR and business executives who are seeking to ensure their L&D strategy adapts to important new business trends and is successful in optimally partnering with their organizations as they head into the future.

Experts will discuss industry trends and learning strategies impacting business today, they will show how to solve challenges and how to use today’s technologies in a better way. Annolucis creates the space for easy knowledge sharing an opportunity to meet new people and share best practices, insights, and tips. 

It’s a perfect opportunity heading back to the office with fresh ideas for your work, reaching out to new contacts after the Summit.

One of the things I really like about this conference is interactions between panelists, speakers and audience. We had so many discussion without any kind of barriers. This conference provides platform for a very open and interactive learning and networking.

The added value of attending Anno Lucis event here, is that you get an opportunity to interact with a lot of peers, people from different background.
Cees Werff
This conference was very welcoming from the start. People were keen to interact, to speak with each other and to learn more about each other’s background. A great atmosphere was created and I will happily come back to this type of event!
