IITD National Training Awards 2021
Now in its twenty-third year, the IITD National Training Awards is recognised as the premier Learning & Development event for industry. The purpose of the IITD National Training Awards is to promote excellence, best practice and innovation in Training and Learning & Development, and to highlight the importance of this area in today’s business climate. This demanding area of business is arguably the critical success factor for future growth and competitiveness for many organisations. Therefore, the role of those responsible for delivery and management of training is vital. For this reason it is absolutely right for the Learning & Development profession to have a cross industry national event to recognise, promote and honour excellence, professionalism and outstanding achievement.
We would like to thank all our guests for attending the IITD 2019 National Training Awards, which took place in March 2019 at Killashee Hotel, Naas

We are delighted to have the continued support of Harvest Resources Ltd for the event and welcome their involvement, once again, through the Pearse Walsh Award.
