Event Details

In light of the current pandemic, EFMD together with the 2021 original conference host, University of Cape Town, Graduate School of Business, have decided to offer this event online.

The event will span over three days, where most activities will take place from 12pm to 4:30pm CEST. Each day consisting of the following three pillars:

  • starting the day with a session bringing in content;
  • going in-depth and exchanging with the authors of the EiP – Excellence in Practice Award winning cases. More info here;
  • connecting and meeting new participants during networking activities.

We all know how important the link between learning providers and the corporate world is for management education. As a result, we want to ensure that this conference, even if it is delivered online, is a unique forum to foster discussion and share practices amongst learning and development experts from both supplier and client side.
