The Learning and Skills Group conference, part of the annual Learning Technologies Summer Forum in London on 14 June, will explore careers in L&D with the help of three learning industry leaders, each with differing and highly successful journeys in the learning industry: Corporate elearning architect and proponent of engaging learning, Ant Pugh; Finance-sector education product manager, Sharon Claffey Kaliouby; Learning technologies manager at Vodafone, Mike Booth.

“You want to take the next step as a learning and development professional – but what is it? You may dream of going freelance, but do you know what that really involves? If you stay in employment, how can you prepare yourself to be marketable for the future? And according to LSG research, women hold only 33% of top level L&D jobs. How will that affect your prospects?” asks LSG conference chair, Donald H Taylor.

The LSG conference, part of the Learning Technologies Summer Forum, in London on 14 June, is a great place for L&D professionals to network with each other and to learn more about the L&D community. And at this year’s conference, we’ve invited three L&D professionals, each in leadership positions in the learning industry and with differing personal careers in the sector, to host a session on careers in L&D.

To evaluate your options as an L&D professional, join this interactive discussion on:

  • Where is the industry heading as a whole?
  • The pros and cons of going freelance
  • When’s it the right time to move on to the next employer?
  • What challenges face women aiming for the top?
  • What skills should I be developing?

LSG conference booking is free of charge for Learning Technologies 2016 conference delegates and LSG members and also includes free access to the Learning Technologies Summer Forum exhibition. The full LSG conference programme is available online.
