The MERIT Summit is a learning showcase, an ideas conference, and a hands-on strategy session with experts and peers, enabling participants to develop a culture of learning, innovation, and growth in their organisations.

This year, two conferences under one roof will provide corporate HR/L&D and Executive Education leaders with dedicated content on the topics shaping the future of organisations and executive education.

Further to our mission to empower people and organisations The MERIT Awards have been designed to award impactful transformational initiatives in the corporate and higher education sectors.
