Leading High Impact Learning 2011

Change on the horizon


Join us June 23/24 for IMD’s Leading High Impact Learning (LHIL) 2011 to discuss the latest issues and trends within Learning and Development: How is virtual learning changing the learning landscape? What will it take for companies to attract, motivate and develop tomorrow’s talent? How should we adapt curriculum for sustainability changes? What are some of the approaches and methodologies leading companies are using?

IMD, the leading international business school, will be exploring these topics during the event, drawing on perspectives from IMD faculty, HR, learning and development and Business leaders, artists and athletes. There will be a mix of plenary and interactive workshops.

The formal event will start at 16.30 on the 23rd with registrations and cocktails. A number of pre-event sessions will take place between 14.00 and 16.30, on topics such as the management of seniors, career development and IMD’s Corporate learning network.

The event is complementary and on invitation, open to HR & Learning and Development executives and Business Leaders passionate about learning and development.
