Dedicated to learning & development leaders navigating the changing workforce during COVID-19

Online Summit | Free to Attend | 21 - 22 July, 2020

Re-imagining Employee Learning Through Agile Learning Delivery, Innovative Design and Emerging Technology
As businesses around the world postpone and cancel roughly 50% of all in-person meetings, programs and events in response to COVID-19, workplace learning and development is emerging as a hard-hit business activity.

Digital and virtual learning programs have become the new norm, with organisations investing in digital platforms that will continue and maintain learning delivery to their employees. To continue enabling and delivering value-creating efforts, leaders in the L&D and OD space have adapted their program content, delivery and either established or expanded on their virtual learning.

Join us for the Employee Learning & Experience Week to explore all aspects of the changing workforce from learning design & development, to employee performance & wellbeing. 

One master pass. All access. Free to attend.
