Event Alert – Learnx Asia-Pac Convention – Brisbane – 14th and 15th Sep

For anyone who’s in Brisbane (or who fancies flying in to Brisbane), the LearnX Asia Pacific Conference is on Wednesday, 14 September 2011 – Thursday, 15 September 2011 at the Brisbane Convention Centre, South Brisbane. The production’s theme is ‘Transformations and innovations in how we learn for work and life’.
