Breakfast Networking Event
ALDinHE is pleased to announce we are hosting our first in-person conference breakfast networking event at ALDCon23.
Join us for our networking breakfast event, for an informal, friendly space to connect with like-minded people working in the field of learning development while enjoying an early breakfast. This event provides an opportunity to network before the conference begins. All face-to-face delegates are welcome and it is a chance for those new to learning development or new to the conference to meet other members of ALDinHE.
If you have not pre-booked to attend the networking breakfast, there is the opportunity to still attend and purchase your own breakfast. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.

This will help everyone get the most value out of the event and reminds us all of the relationships and connections that can be gained from ALDcon23 after it is finished.
The Chat and Connect zone is a place where you can go to connect and chat with each other, sharing your ideas and thoughts on the conference. This is a space you can discuss topics of interest and engage with other attendees.
