Join Us As A Speaker or Trainer
LearnFest started as an idea, “to transform learning from the predictable, mundane and forgettable, to being exciting, fascinating and lasting” (Sherrone Lobban, Founder, LearnFest Caribbean). In 2016, we asked the question: What’s the value of one truly transformative and great idea, …that turns your mission into a movement? We are proud to say that LearnFest Caribbean has turned into that movement. We invite you to respond to our call for LearnFest Caribbean speakers
