In partnership with the Learning Performance Institute (LPI), the global authority on workplace learning and performance, Informa Connect hosts the L&D Summit at Abu Dhabi, a conference that brings learning and talent development talent together. The event is also supported by Abu Dhabi Convention and Exhibition Bureau, and exclusive Media Partner Abu Dhabi Media.

The conference will take place on the 14- 15 May, 2024 at The Ritz-Carlton–Grand Canal, Abu Dhabi and serves as an international platform for talent development and learning and development professionals, offering opportunities for knowledge sharing, networking, and professional growth.

“By partnering with the L&D Summit in Abu Dhabi, we are committed to supporting learning and talent development professionals through an extensive speaker line-up of thought leaders from learning, business, and international employers,” said Ed Monk, President and CEO of the Learning and Performance Institute (LPI).

The L&D Summit Abu Dhabi is primed to be a platform that brings knowledge, experiences and best practices from industry leaders globally, said the event organisers. 

“With two LPI certification programmes on offer, plus knowledge-sharing and networking opportunities, the conference aims to provide insights and best practices that attendees can quickly implement in their organisations” added Monk.  

The event will take place over a period of five days, opening with a pre-event masterclass on the 13th of May by Erin Meyer focused on the intersection of leadership and culture; and closing with powerful post-event workshops on the 16 – 17th of May based on performance consulting, improving corporate culture, measuring ROI for L&D initiatives and AI learning technologies in collaboration with the Learning Performance Institute (LPI).

“As today’s business world becomes ever-more global and virtual, managers are expected to work harmoniously together with counterparts form a broad array of cultures and backgrounds, often without leaving their desks. When you throw people together who come from starkly different backgrounds and cultures, the results can be educational, fascinating, sometimes even funny, but can also lead to misunderstanding and confusion,” said Erin Meyer,  INSEAD Professor and Author of the New York Times best-seller ‘The Culture Map’.

The Summit will focus on the strategic importance of investing in learning and development programmes within the dynamic UAE business landscape, addressing market demands, technological advancements, and fostering innovation. 

Industry stalwarts Jamil Qureshi and Dave Ulrich are set to take the stage on the 14th and 15th of May together with regional speakers from ADNOC, Abu Dhabi Customs, EIF,  Al Futtaim, Landmark Group, Ministry of Education, EMAAR, RAKEZ, Aramco, Majid Al Futtaim and more, to deliberate key challenges and trends through a comprehensively designed conference agenda with real life examples and practical case studies surrounding leadership, coaching and mentoring, future readiness, learning technologies, neuroscience, re-skilling, career development, training and facilitation, learning analytics, government strategy, culture, AI, ESG, CSR, DEI to highlight a few.

“ In today’s business world, it is a truism that organisations need talented people, more than talented people need organisations. For companies to attract, retain and optimise the potential of the best people, excellence in the L&D space is essential,” said Jamil Qureshi, Performance Coach and Psychologist.

“As the region continues to grow at such incredible speed, an event like this is crucial to those looking to win the war for talent,” he added.
