Hybrid event,

Thank you for joining us at the virtual ATD 2020 Middle East Conference and Exhibition.

We hope you had a great experience and gained insights that will help you to reshape the future of learning at your workplace.

Redefining the future of learning in the MENA region

ATD Middle East Conference and Exhibition was an opportunity for learning and development (L&D) and HR professionals to come together from various organisations and industries across the globe from the comfort of their own homes. We visited crucial topics such as reshaping L&D's future, new approaches to employee development, remote performance management, and agile cultures; as well as innovative techniques in training design, and delivery among others.


Brandon Carson, director of learning at Delta Air Lines, tuned in live to share his insight on how L&D needs to re-evaluate its own strategy, structure, capabilities, and tools for this new world of work. 

Carson is an award-winning learning and development executive with extensive expertise in developing learning strategies and learning technology implementation for Oracle, eBay, Apple, Yahoo, Microsoft, Intel, and other global companies. He is also a keynote speaker and bestselling author.
