One Reply to “ Learning – The Learning Leaders’ Conference*”

  1. Hello,

    I have been asked to put together a list of HR/Learning conferences/forums/retreats/summits that happen throughout the year for the Learning team here at ZS. I am looking to get pricing details for the 2020 Learning Forum happening on Nov 15-18 in Orlando, FL. If you could send me the cost per person (member/nonmember) and if applicable, for a group, that would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    (KMedu Hub Note: Replied by eMail on Mar 4, 2020 – Boris)
