About Us

The vision for LDNI was born in May 2011 when 9 (nine) Nigerian professionals who attended the Association for Talent Development (ATD) formerly 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 how to bring the same passion from that conference to Nigeria and start something similar.

LDNI creates a platform for the promotion of L&D practice in Nigeria and an avenue for continuous learning and development of its members through a structured learning approach covering the Talent Capability Model developed by the ATD. Our Vision is to create and enforce high professional and ethical standards for L&D practitioners contributing to the growth and development of our organizations and the Country at large.
