Annual Learning Day 2015


Annual Learning Day 2015

In the spirit of our Annual Sharing Day, we’ve created a new type of event that focuses on blending Research and Practice. Targeting topics chosen by 2015 Annual Sharing Day participants, we plan to engage academics and practitioners around current research in areas of greatest shared interest. We will use that information to shed new light on participants’ key work challenges, explore emerging trends, and provide a forum for mutually beneficial dialogue. Together, participants, university professors, and practitioners will partner to explore relevant business issues, sharing research and experiences to help each one tackle important organizational needs.

By connecting academic research, learning and practical application, you will develop new thinking and innovative practice for your most pressing organizational needs.
