Skills, talent and capability are increasingly ‘top of mind’ issues for business and government leaders around the world. Reports from the World Economic Forum acknowledge the insatiable demand for new digital skillsets at all levels of society, and the Conference Board has identified access to and retention of talent as the number one risk expressed by CEOs, CHROs, and CFOs for the last two years.

In this webinar, you will receive a sneak peak into what is covered in our Radical Learning Transformation course in the Future Workplace Academy.

Hear from Chris Pirie, CEO of the Learning Futures group, former CLO of the Microsoft global field organization, and lead faculty of Radical Learning Transformation on why this course was created and how we have assembled a stellar community of CLOs to discuss and share how they are transforming their learning organization to be agile, and leverage a range of digital technologies.

This webinar will focus on how to think differently in terms of

  • Your People and Talent
  • The Learning Technology Landscape
  • Your Learner engagement and experience
  • Your Programs and Processes
