Lead a learning revolution fit for the future of people function
No matter where you’re based, HR functions have experienced some adversity in today’s complex, rapidly-changing world. The sixth edition of Learning and Development Asia is here to support you in unravelling the complex business impact of upskilling.
With themes around agility in learning, strategic leadership reinforcement, and adapting a learning culture to support business goals at #LearningDevelopmentAsia, you’ll gain a competitive edge with transformational learning and development (L&D) concepts.
Join #LearningDevelopmentAsia and be emboldened to optimise your current strategies as you strive for an engaged, agile and productive workforce in 2021 and beyond:
Create, adapt and sustain new value in our new reality when you tap into the minds of Asia’s leading HR and L&D leaders through exclusive case-study presentations and interactive strategy discussions.
You’ll also have high value networking opportunities with more than 300 of the best HR and L&D professionals, plus time to interact with the leading L&D solution providers!
The challenges L&D professionals face
Businesses still expect intended learning outcomes to be achieved despite unprecedented change in environments. The global workforce is grappling with what Industry 4.0 means for them, while new, disruptive ways of working require HR professionals to adapt with unfamiliar tools.
Learning & Development Asia is here to help you elevate your HR function in the context of today’s challenges, including:
1. Managing technological disruption
2. Anchoring learning adoption and engagement
As skills emerge, evolve and expire, L&D plays a critical role in boosting employee skill preparedness. While continuous training is more cost-effective than disruptive layoffs and hiring, the challenge for talent development experts remains how to identify where, when and why their L&D brands are not resonating with their learners.
3. Tackling the rise of new workforce segments
With demographics such as Gen Z, Millennials, and mobile talent, digitised, social, mobile and self-directed learning opportunities are the 2021 buzzwords for increased engagement. How can HR build a learning culture that resonates with different audiences while taping into the potential and preference of each learner?
4. Aligning business goals with effective teamwork
In a learning culture, management and HR must work together to define impactful values, processes and practices that can be cascaded down to employees, departments and the organisation to enhance performance and competencies.
5. Rapidly adjusting to a new reality
The new ways of working are here to stay. Organisations must now step-up current learning approaches to enable remote and online delivery. At #LearningDevelopmentAsia, we help HR practitioners outline a straightforward, improved practice approach that delivers effective online learning.
We deliver content covering your urgent priorities, highlighting emerging industry trends as well as distilling useful lessons from the past to close the L&D gap between employees and employers in Asia:

5 key takeaways from attending #LearningDevelopmentAsia 2021
Maintain a high employee retention rate
While we usually talk about an organisation assessing an employee, don’t forget that the employee is also assessing your organisation. Hear how long-term, past and potential employee ambassadors are crucial in delivering a compelling employer brand for your candidates.
Design a high-impact employee L&D plan with purpose
Learn how your peers and senior representatives across industries define ‘high-impact’, and capture the best cross-industry benchmark techniques you can use when designing your L&D plan.
Passing the baton to your next generation of leaders
Think beyond improving productivity to succession planning. All organisations need to focus on tomorrow by grooming potential leaders for their leadership pipeline.
Co-create solutions with market leaders
As you share and discuss your solutions, open your mind to integrating new concepts adopted by other organisations.
Connect with a passionate L&D community
Network and collaborate with more than 300 C-level executives, senior HR leaders and L&D specialists across industries.
