There had been so many; the role of education in developing the corporate skills base, whether HR and training initiatives are more likely to win board support if they use the language of risk management, how best to build an e-learning culture within the organization, the prospects for e-learning, and many, many more. On reflection, one of the striking features of the Forum was a debate that hardly took place at all. Even more striking was the wealth of expertise and experience that the delegates — senior IT training managers and e-learning professionals from many of the top public and private sector organizations across Great Britain — brought to this year's Forum. That expertise really came across during workshop debates where best practice was shared between delegates. It was clear from talking to many of the corporate training professionals that attended that the Forum was a rare opportunity to get together with their peer group to exchange ideas and learn from each other's experiences.
