Corporate training and development opportunities are undoubtedly critical in empowering and engaging staff and improving business performance. However, the constant challenge for many HR professionals is how to effectively link development programmes to business strategies.

This issue will be examined by distinguished leaders and experts in L&D, including HR leaders from Accenture, DHL and Keysight Technologies, at Training & Development Asia, the region’s only learning & development strategy conference for HR leaders and learning & development specialists.

“This year’s speakers at Training & Development Asia are set to lead thought-provoking discussions and case study presentations to examine the impact of L&D on business.”
