Are you experiencing post-event blues after the Learning Technologies conference & expo last week? Can't say we blame you!

We are beyond thrilled with the success of our first Go1 pop-up hybrid event at Learning Technologies.

During the event we ran 6 panel sessions over two days with an amazing lineup of specialist guest speakers of L&D analysts, researchers, and practitioners. When we weren’t busy hosting sessions, we were making new connections and catching up with customers and partners.

Go1 VP of Sales (EMEA) Ollie Browning talks us through our first pop-up hybrid event below:

Now that the event is over the fun doesn't have to stop there. We have put together a common place for you to catch up on everything we covered at the event. Forget FOMO, we've got you covered!

Catch-up on the sessions below.

Day 1: Taking your organisation's L&D to the next level

Developing a World-Class Content Strategy

The last two years have highlighted the importance of supporting distanced learning both as a response to the pandemic and to other organisational challenges including new ways of working and the need to develop new skills for the changing world of work. For many organisations digital learning content, resources and courses have been a critical pillar of corporate learning for the last two decades or more. For others, large and small, they have been embracing digital learning approaches for the first time. And nearly all have expanded their adoption of digital. But two years into the pandemic, it’s time to reflect. It’s time to consider how a learning content strategy can take people development to the next level.

Speakers: 

  • Ollie Browning - VP of Sales EMEA, Go1 
  • David Perring – Director of Research, Fosway Group 


How to Close Skills Gaps Through a Relevant, Scalable and Future-Proofed Learning Strategy

What is the point of workplace learning, if not to close critical skills gaps? That's the big question, yet when it comes to connecting L&D and talent many organisations don't know where to begin. 

Meanwhile, "The Great Resignation" is a reality, especially when it comes to competitive roles.    

So what can we, as learning leaders, do about this? In this session, our speakers look at some trends and best practices to help you avoid pitfalls and leapfrog into the future. 

Speakers:

  • Ollie Browning - VP of Sales EMEA, Go1 
  • Lori Niles-Hofman – Senior EdTech Transformation Strategist, Niles-Nolen 
  • Rosemary Hoskins - Global Capability Lead, AstraZeneca 
  • Marc Zao-Sanders – Founder and CEO, Filtered 

How to prepare employees for the unknown jobs of the future

Future-fit skills are the essential skills needed across the workforce if teams and organisations are to innovate, communicate, adapt fast and be ready for the future. They are no longer the domain of the elite and recent improvements in digital content and platforms provide the opportunity to open up access for all. However, if no one connects with the opportunity and employees are not engaged, then we are no further forward.  

If employees haven’t bought into the relevance of these essential skills for their jobs today, they might struggle to invest time for the future. So how can L&D leaders connect and engage with staff across the business to build future skills?  

Speakers:

  • Laura Overton – Co-Founder, Emerging Stronger Group 
  • Shannon Tipton - Co-Founder, Emerging Stronger Group 
  • Craig Hamill – Customer Success Manager, Go1 
  • Rosemary Hoskins - Global Capability Lead, AstraZeneca 

Day 2: From strategy to execution - practical solutions for maximum business impact 

How to Close Skills Gaps Through a Relevant, Scalable and Future-Proofed Learning Strategy

The Great Resignation? The Great Reshuffle? The Great Regret? Our speakers discuss how we can be smarter about content, cut through the noise and ensure relevance at scale, using data to drive more informed decisions. 

Speakers:

  • Ollie Browning - VP of Sales EMEA, Go1
  • Amanda Nolen – Co-Founder, Niles-Nolen
  • Brian Murphy – Senior Director, Employee Skilling, Microsoft
  • Elisabetta Galli, Global Head of Learning & Development at Lightsource BP 

Learning Content - From Strategy To Execution - A Talk With L&D Leaders

  • Host and Moderator: Ollie Browning - VP of Sales EMEA, Go1 
  • Malcolm Taylor – Senior People Development Manager, Met Office 
  • Lori Niles-Hoffman - Senior EdTech Transformation Strategist, Niles-Nolen 
  • Alfonso Bustos Sanchez – Head of Digital Academy Europe – Ricoh España  


Connecting To Community: Practical Tactics For L&D Professionals

In today's modern workplace, there are ample opportunities to connect people, ideas, and information. From text groups and email to enterprise social networks like Teams and Slack, there are more options than ever to plug in, share and connect. 

But amid all of the virtual social opportunities - there’s a bigger question for L&D professionals. How can we connect with community to create learning solutions that improve business impact? 

Speakers:

  • Laura Overton – Co-Founder, Emerging Stronger Group 
  • Shannon Tipton - Co-Founder, Emerging Stronger Group 
  • James Frappell – Customer Success Director, Go1 
  • Malcolm Taylor – Senior People Development Manager, Met Office
