BARCELONA, Spain - Sept. 15, 2016 - PRLog -- "MERIT is a venue for generating and sharing innovative ideas within the higher education sector. International business schools and companies from around the world will get the opportunity to learn, connect and build mutually beneficial partnerships", Christophe Coutat, Advent Group's Managing Director said.

The two days of learning and networking will bring together corporate HR Directors, Heads of Talent Management, Chief Learning Officers, Executive Education Directors, Heads of Executive MBA Programmes, and Heads of Marketing and Recruitment from leading business schools. Through the organisation of workshops, panel discussions, MERITalks, case study presentations, and one-to-one meetings, the summit provides various learning, brainstorming, and benchmarking options for all attendees.

The topics of the conferences, workshops, and presentations were carefully selected following surveys and discussions with HR and education professionals, and will focus on the latest Learning and Development trends, technological advances, and best global practices. Human Resources experts and innovators will offer their vision on the globalisation of the Human Resources role, the transformation and impact of Leaning & Development, and executive education in the digital age.

The two conference days will feature nine panel discussions with business leaders and senior L&D executives from global companies such as ING, KPMG, KLM, Acer, Saatchi & Saatchi, Nestle, and Nike. High-achieving alumni from top international business schools will deliver 25 TED-style MERITalks on learning and leadership. Participants can also attend specialised HR and business education workshops led by international coaches and experts.

Business school marketing and recruitment professionals will have the opportunity to attend pre-event workshops on January 17, tackling issues such as mobile marketing strategies, digital metrics, behavioural tracking, and lead generation.
