Senior presenterWith the drive to go on screen for learning, it’s easy to forget that there are still several important face-to-face L&D conferences in the UK which offer unrivalled: networking, learning and even deal-making opportunities for L&D professionals.

In saying that, most of these face-to-face conferences will be integrated with and augmented with live, interactive mobile-based activities.

Here’s 5 of the best face-to-face L&D conferences in the UK.
