Transforming workplace learning - speaking sessions

On the 15th and 16th of June, we set out to help L&D teams prepare for the new world of work and digital transformation. Our lineup of speakers featured several specialists, including L&D analysts, researchers, and practitioners. Together we explored the new tools and methodologies transforming workplace learning today, as well as what’s going to make an impact tomorrow.

Throughout this event, our panellists explored three L&D pillars:

  • Content curation  
  • Community learning 

We’ve recorded the sessions so that you can learn more about each pillar at your own leisure. Check them out below! 

🎯 A solid content strategy is key.

Level up your learning and content strategy 

In our day 1 session, David Perring, Director of Research at Fosway Group talked with Ollie Browning, VP of sales for EMEA, about the four ways to help organisations create world-class learning and content strategies.
