"2014 is shaping up to be a really exciting year," said Donald Taylor, chair of the Learning Technologies Conference. "I never cease to be surprised and amazed by the innovation I see all around in learning and development. There's so much to learn. Business is placing greater demand on L&D; learners are learning in an ever increasing variety of ways; the commercial sector is responding with greater innovation."
