Where do L&D network?


Hi Everyone

I like networking yet i'm struggling to find good networking groups which are aimed at L&D professionals from both sides of the fence -  suppliers and buyers.   I've started attending a regional CIPD event which is one place but wanted to know if there are any groups ideally in London or north London (Herts/Essex) which are set up for this?

  1. eLearning Network

    Hi Blake,

    I would say this as someone involved with the eLearning Network but it's very much a group aimed at all L&D professionals. Our membership is made up of learning providers, independents and client side organisations. We're a not for profit and exist solely for our members (I'm a volunteer) and we regularly have free get togethers and longer paid-for events in London and beyond. Check us out here: The reason I volunteer is because I've had so much value in terms of networking and learning from the eLN over the years.

    Hope to see you around soon 🙂
