    This week on the 200th episode of the Good Practice Podcast, the team are joined by Andy Lancaster, Hannah Gore, Kenny Temowo and a live Zoom audience to discuss the future of work.

    197 — Shaking up the conference format

    Learning and development conferences tend to follow a predictable format: an exhibition hall full of vendors, hour-long sessions from experts, and fringe events where people can socialise. The introduction of social distancing has disrupted that format, but might it also create an opportunity to try something different?

    This week on The Good Practice Podcast, Dr. Will Thalheimer and Matthew Richter, president of The Thiagi Group, join Ross G and Owen to share details of the online-only 'L&D Conference'.
