About Us

The vision for LDN was born in May 2011 when 9 (nine) Nigerian professionals who attended the American Society of Training & Development (ASTD) conference at Orlando, Florida and met at the conference.

They talked about the seamless way with which the conference was organized and discussed on how to bring the same passion from that conference to Nigeria and start something similar.

Dr Alo (Founding President of LDNI), who was also at that conference, immediately volunteered to sponsor the venue and breakfast at the first roundtable meeting of the proposed network in Nigeria. Collins Edebiri (Founding VP), who was also at the conference & has been the livewire of this network, got back to Nigeria and immediately rallied and coordinated the first in August 2011 and subsequent meetings ever since.

Following an AGM held in March 2016, Mr Collins Edebiri succeeded Dr. Alo as the new National President of LDNI
