In regards to the COVID-19 situation, we have decided to postpone our European Summit to September 18. We believe that, by this time, we will be able to safely gather at this boutique event. Our priority is to continue to deliver a unique learning experience while respecting national and global health regulations. We hope to see you in Paris.
“Rethinking Learning in a Connected World” will be the focus of our next MERIT European Summit. Co-hosted by LinkedIn.
With digital innovation, global connectivity, and the constant need for upskilling and reskilling, new frontiers are opening in corporate and executive learning.
Learning can ensure resilience and it can give companies a competitive edge. Conversely, outdated and ineffective learning programmes can hamper talent and impede growth.
Join the Summit created by the Merit Leadership Community to learn new concepts, draw collaborative solutions for your current challenges and to connect with HR peers and top European business schools.
