See what past speakers have to say

"As a speaker, the excitement of the attendees was infectious. Everyone who attended my session or connected with me after were interested in doing more with learning and development, and wanted to offer their feedback and advice to get there. The Guild was great at making sure I was comfortable, had all the information I needed for my presentation and was set up beforehand. I was well taken care of and as a first time in person speaker I REALLY appreciated that!"
—Vanessa A.

"It was so great to be back in person in 2022 at Learning Solutions and connect, share and learn from the community. I love how The Learning Guild helps to inspire, introduce, and keep us up to date on what is and what’s not working in what we do every day, helping our audiences learn."
—Nick F.

“The Learning Solutions Conference has been a consistently great experience for me, year after year, both as a speaker and as an attendee. As a speaker, I have had really engaged audiences who ask thoughtful questions and actively participate. The Guild staff and volunteers are friendly and supportive, which helps create a positive speaking environment."
