About the conference
The SAGEA 2022 Development Conference will connect you to colleagues who are committed to the development and retention of young talent as employers, institutions of higher learning or solution providers.

Our team will ensure that you have opportunities to focus on issues impacting the development of young talent – by learning from experts, discovering how they have dealt with the new hybrid approach to working and how they are reframing young talent development. You will gain insight into the solutions and methods which can be used to handle common challenges experienced by graduate employers at this time. Using a combination of keynote speakers new and emerging insights and practical case studies, the format of the Conference will encourage sharing of information, feedback, and debate.
