Executive Summary

This year as we hosted our 11th Learning CAFÉ ME we were delighted to see new and familiar faces again. The year had been a challenge for Learning and HR professionals but our collective optimism was palpable for the year ahead. This year our topic was “The Age of Learning On-Demand,” and as part of this we offered an opportunity for the audience to share their insights via our annual survey. It was pleasing to see every single person from our esteemed guests participating, which gives us some fantastic data to share with our community.
