What people have said about previous ILP conferences

Belonging to ILP is a bit like having a library membership – access to a whole new world of possibilities! Something I really appreciate is the annual conference. It’s a fabulous opportunity to hear first-hand of cutting-edge developments in our profession and engage in lively conversations with like-minded professionals.

Great conference with excellent presenters.  Got a lot out of the conference that I will be able to apply in my workplace.  For example, the Breakout session conducted by Geoff Rip and Lucy Marles on the 70:20:10 learning framework.  Will definitely attend the next conference.”

Geoff W.

“I found the ILP’s Conference to be an exceptionally valuable experience. I came away from it inspired, armed with creative new ideas and knowledge, and ready to implement some fantastic new initiatives to further support, engage and inspire our students.

I cannot recommend it highly enough… a must for anyone who wants to provide exceptional learning experiences and personal development opportunities for their students.  Thank you ILP!”

Here are just a few of the many benefits you will gain by attending


Learning Success Blueprint Summit 2018 is an industry-defining event for learning and development professionals. You will learn what’s going on in the industry, find out what strategies your peers are implementing, and discover how they are tackling similar issues you are facing. In short, you’ll learn new strategies and solutions to solve some of your biggest challenges.


This isn’t going to be your typical conference, where a million people are crammed in a room and someone talks ‘at’ you.  Our speakers will engage WITH you and challenge conventional thinking about the Learning and Development industry.


It’s not all sessions and formal learning.  A valuable part of any conference is the chance that it gives you to interact with people who share your passion about being the best Learning and Development professionals that they can be.  Learn from colleagues in similar situations and come away with new contacts so that you can continue to learn and grow from each other.
