What Is the Core4 Conference?

It is an intimate three-day learning experience focused on the foundational elements of training and development that should be comprehended in person and virtually. These four key topics include:

  • Instructional Design
  • Evaluating Impact
  • Learning Technologies
  • Training Delivery & Facilitation

Training and development is a vast and dynamic field. More and more people are being placed into training roles without a background or formal education in adult learning, which often translates into lower success rates for learners. This event provides the fundamental knowledge required to turn anyone into a successful learning and development professional.

With three keynote speakers (In Person) and two (virtually), 24 educational sessions across four content tracks, and ample opportunity to network and learn from peers, you're sure to take away knowledge that you can apply immediately. And because we’re focused on the paramount subjects of talent development, attendees will return to work with a solid foundation on which to build success.
