Take control of your career in 2019 with our guide to this year’s HR and L&D events. We’ve gathered over 50 of the best events in London in one place so you can plan out what to attend.


We know you might still be feeling a bit sensitive from over-indulging during the festive period, but it’s never too early to start planning out your professional development for the year.

Professional events are an easy place to start as they combine the two mega career-boosting activities of developing your skills and growing your professional network.

They’re also super-fun and packed with like-minded people who are all focused on developing the world of work to be a better place for everyone.

So, why not make a New Year’s resolution you’ll actually keep and sign up for a few events? It beats sweating it out in an overcrowded gym!
