Informa Connect is proud to partner with the Learning Performance Institute (LPI), the global authority on workplace learning and performance to host the L&D Summit I Abu Dhabi, a prestigious learning and talent development event together with the support of the Abu Dhabi Convention & Exhibition Bureau (ADCEB).

The L&D Summit I Abu Dhabi will take place on May 14-15, 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.

The L&D Summit Abu Dhabi is primed to be the most credible learning and development event in the UAE, bringing knowledge, experiences and best practices from industry leaders globally spread over a period of five days, opening with a pre-event masterclass on May 13 by Erin Meyer focused on the intersection of leadership and culture; and closing with powerful post-event workshops on May 16-17 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 a featured speaker at the L&D Summit in Abu Dhabi, I am delighted to be part of this important gathering to work with participants to develop their ability to lead effectively across cultures. 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.The UAE is one of the most multi-cultural places in the world and understanding how people from different cultures think, lead, and get things done, and how to manage these differences to maximise success, is critical to the effectiveness of anyone working in the region. I look forward to seeing you there,” said 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 May 14 and 15, 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.

“I am delighted to be invited to speak at the L&D Summit, Abu Dhabi. 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. 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,” said Qureshi, Performance Coach and Psychologist.

“By partnering with the L&D Summit I 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)

“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.
