I’m already excited for the next Learnit. Marvin Kellyman, General Manager - Primary & Preschools, Ministry of Education - Belize

Learnit was incredible. The right people, having the right conversation, and in the right atmosphere. If this is what you guys pulled off in year one I can’t wait for the second edition! You’re going to blow the doors off! Jaime B. Goldstein, Director of Strategic Projects and Innovation Grants, Harvard Initiative for Learning and Teaching

About Our mission is to catalyse change in learning at every age, globally. We believe that through revolutionising education, we can change the world. Learnit catalyses change in three key ways:


C  OMMUNITY - Uniting the entire, global, learning ecosystem For change to happen, everyone needs a seat at table. The Learnit community is inclusive, disruptive, bold and brave. It encompasses the entire learning ecosystem – from government, educator leaders, corporates and established solution providers to tech startups, investors and media. It is united by a common goal to improve education outcomes globally. In 2019, Learnit’s 1,000+ attendees came from 69 countries.


CONVERSATION - An open and honest conversation on the current state, and future of learning Learnit’s conversation is intellectually honest. It’s a conversation about how to give everyone, regardless of age, ethnicity or wealth, the opportunity to reach their greatest potential in a rapidly evolving world. It is untethered by legacy, politics or geography. Learnit’s 150+ international speakers are selected based on merit, not pay-to-play.


INTERACTIONS - Meaningful interactions Learnit is designed with meaningful interactions at its heart. Our Hosted Leaders Programme provides government, talent and educator leaders with free tickets and funding to attend Learnit, in exchange for personalised 15 minute meetings with our sponsors and partners. Learnit’s networking programmes foster productive, meaningful relationships. Over 2,000+ personalised meetings will take place at Learnit in 2021.

The C Word Learnit is not about change for change’s sake. It’s not about chasing the newest, sparkliest idea or solution just because it’s sexy. It’s not about theories, egoes or naval gazing. Learnit is about real people, at every level of the global learning ecosystem, sharing brave new ways of enabling learners of every age to achieve their greatest potential in a rapidly changing world. Learnit catalyses change in learning globally by uniting bold and brave individuals, organisations and solutions from across the world. Learnit is led by Katy Fryatt, Founder & CEO.

The Hosted Meetings Programme Facilitated Meetings for Lead Generation Lead generation at Learnit is achieved through our Hosted Meetings Programme. The programme matches you, with carefully selected one-to-one meetings with government, educator and talent leaders onsite at Learnit. Each meeting is 15 minutes long. You do not need to be an exhibitor or sponsor to join this programme. Educator, government and talent leaders tell us who they are looking to meet with, the types of solutions they are looking for, or (quite frequently), the issue they are trying to solve for. The Learnit team then matches your meetings. This ensures meetings are meaningful for both parties. You must purchase a minimum of 10 meetings. Since meetings are double opt-in, and depend on calendar availability, we cannot guarantee that all of the meetings you initially purchase will be schedule, but you will only pay for the meetings you have. Meetings packages start at ÂŁ4,000. Contact for more information and pricing.

‘Learnit presented an entirely new and compelling way to engage global education leaders, one that was long overdue. Not only was the tone and format different from the start, the collection of speakers, delegates, and corporate partners was among the best I’ve seen. We found the event to be a lively, thought-provoking affair that has created a new community of peers working together to improve education. Even knowing it was the event’s inaugural year, I am hard-pressed to think of a better run organisation and look forward to staying connected with the Learnit team for a long time.’ Jim McVety, former Vice President, Marketing and Business Development, ClassLink, Inc. USA

‘Learnit had such an impressive line-up of speakers - from Andreas Schleicher and Eton's headmaster to some of the fastest growing startups but also real personality. It was great to find a fresh new event with such character and energy at a time when some of the longer-standing events could do with a shake-up.’ Bertie Hubbard, CEO & Founder, MyTutor


‘Learnit year one was great. Congrats on pulling together such an impressive network and brand in such a short amount of time. Genuinely excited about what's to come and proud that there is finally a European EdTech conference that I believe in.’ Jan Lynn-Matern, Founder & CEO, Emerge Education |
