“With 60 learning executives who have advised and successfully dealt with training challenges that relate to a modern workforce presenting, attendees will learn what’s working, why and get practical ideas and strategies they can use for their learning team,” Rob said.

The Exhibition will present and demonstrate the latest innovations and technologies available.

Talented professionals working in the e-learning and training sector are also being urged not to miss the opportunity to be recognised through the LearnX E-Learning and Training Awards.  Entries for the awards, which focus on recognising excellence in the industry, close in just over two weeks on Friday 2nd April 2010.

The winners will be announced at a special Awards Luncheon (on 10th June) during the Conference in front of the who’s who of the industry attending, including Learning Leaders from corporate, academia and public service sectors.

Rob said they felt the awards were especially important this year because they would acknowledge organisations, teams and individuals who had dedicated themselves to training, in what has been a tough year economically.

“As Australia gears back up from the economic downturn there are more Australians looking for training opportunities – particularly online – that give them an edge in a competitive market,” Mr Clarke said.

“In 2009, the Awards were hailed as the best in the South Pacific region and were celebrated by more than 400 Learning Leaders. The Awards have a hugely positive impact on the individuals, teams and organisations that enter,” he said.

Australian Red Cross Blood Service National Learning and Development Manager Les Lisz said they were delighted to receive the prestigious 2009 LearnX Award for Best Training Team.  “To be recognised externally for our achievements was wonderful confirmation that we are applying industry best practice in how we partner with the business.  It was a great motivator for the team and created much excitement within our organisation,” Mr Lisz said.
