Our peer-networking breakfasts tend to be about two hours long and require all attendees to pre-register on www.LearningExecutive.com. For members, there is normally no cost to attend our member's peer-networking breakfasts (see below for more details on availability) and non-members typically are charged an administration fee per person to attend an event.
All registrations are taken online and we automatically add your email address to receive our e-newsletter.
