Sign up for a free webinar on personal development for eventprofs. Whether furloughed, out of work or still navigating the digital event world, eventprofs spent 2020 attending all the webinars, learning new skills and taking the opportunity to dedicate time to developing. But with so much content available, it was difficult to filter out the noise and work out what was really worth showing up for.

In 2021 we have the opportunity to take what we learned last year and leverage it to grow and hone our skillsets – whatever side of the industry we’re in.

Join our expert panel to discover their top trends and predictions for personal development – and find out why you need to become a lot more mindful of how you’re investing your time and resources in the personal development space.
