  • Laura Overton is a rare find as far as keynote speakers go - a voracious researcher who is so eloquent in her delivery of what could be complex findings, it's almost poetic. Laura has the ability to distil and discern insights into workplace leaning that are of tremendous value to both industry practitioners and perhaps more importantly, business itself. We were lucky to have her present at EduTech 2023 in Melbourne, Australia - an event I was co-charing. Laura, as the opening speaker had the joint responsibility of opening the workplace learning stream and setting the standard - she did not disappoint! Thank you, Laura for your fantastic session and also thank you for your tremendous contribution to L&D over the many years you have been a key voice. I look forward to many more events in the future.
