the 15th anniversary of the Asia HRD Congress™Having started the Asia HRD Congress™ in 2002, we are proud to be celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Asia HRD Congress™ in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This is following a very successful event in 2015, in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The Asia HRD Congress™ started initially as Trainers-Meet-Trainers® (TMT) conference on a complimentary basis. Over the last 30+ years it has grown in popularity and attracted thousands of participants from around the world. In 2002, it expanded in scope and evolved into what we know today as the Asia HRD Congress™. Since then, the event has been rotated around various Asian capitals. The Asia HRD Congress™ aims to attract delegates from all Asian countries making it a congregation of Asian talents; sharing and learning towards advancement in knowledge and skills. The Asia HRD Congress™ has now returned to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Talent Development: The New Landscape

Management is often said to both a science and an art. So is Talent Development. Developing Talent is both a science and an art but there is a strong belief among both researchers and practitioners that there is an element of talent development that will always remain an art.
HR practitioners need to be artists.
