Corporate learning is being disrupted. Finding and retaining key talent is a challenge that organisations struggle with as skill shortages prevail across the world. The sheer changing nature and speed of work is disrupting job demands across every organisation and function. With advances in digitalisation, increased globalisation, technologies, increased competition, and shifting demographics, the future is undoubtedly unpredictable. All these changes profoundly challenge how we do business and how companies manage their skill development. Corporate Learning needs to be a competitive advantage that drives operational excellence, innovation and performance.
Learning is also being put under pressure – L & D professionals must now be tech-curious, savvy, have business acumen, demonstrate their value and be agile in their approach to delivering learning at work that translates into business improvement. Are you ready for it? Is your organisation? It has never been more important for organisations to prepare and ensure that they are building their workforce skill-sets to ensure they are future-ready. Attend the Learning and Development Conference 2019 to ensure you are developing your capability and expertise as a learning professional. As a learning and development professional your role has never been more important. The ability to translate learning to growth will be what set organisations apart from their competition and the ability to make the leap from learning to growth will require leaders who assist employee to put their minds to work.
Organisations need to invest in preparing ready-now and future-ready workers with development opportunities that will transform them into capable and agile performers. The sheer pace of technology and competitive innovation alone assures a need to up-skill employees, but learning executives also feel intense pressure to constantly improve, reinvent and retool their learning initiatives to be faster, better, smarter, too. In order to thrive as an L & D professional, we need to adapt and evolve to the changing context of work.
L & D leaders must seize the opportunity to play a critical strategic role in driving learning and transformation, re-image the learner experience, deliver business value through L & D and bring new thinking to the executive table. Join KR at the Learning and Development 2019 Conference 2019 where we will look at the latest trends, technologies and practices that can ensure your function preparing for the future.

How do you develop this capability in your staff?

Learning is fast becoming a business-critical priority. We can all ‘feel’ that the pace has accelerated. To keep pace organisations need to become increasingly agile not only in how they operate and execute but in their underpinning philosophy too.
In this workshop we will cover the three major shifts that we need to make if we are wanting to establish and grow the Self-driven, Agile, Digital, Exponential Learning (SADEL) Organisation. Join Kerryn Kohl from 4thTalent in this immersive learning experience and start your journey to transformation. By attending you will gain an in-depth look at the framework required to build this type of organisation. They will drill down and bring each of the three elements of the framework into clearer focus for practical application.
