Keynote Speakers

Each day of the conference, all delegates were invited to attend one interesting keynote speeach by leading figures in the field of learning, training and development. As EAPRIL aims to provide its delegates with an interesting mix of topics and perspectives in the broad field of education, we succeeded also this year to attract three keynote speakers that each have their own content-specific focus.
