Skillsoft’s flagship event is fast approaching—an event where L&D leaders will come together to share and discuss how learning has evolved to better serve the global marketplace and keep pace with technological change.
Skillsoft Perspectives Australia & New Zealand, now in its 16th consecutive year, will see more than 120 learning and development decision makers from business, government and education providers gather at Swissotel Sydney on 27 August 2014 to find out how they can “innovate, influence and impact” through innovative learning and development approaches within their own organizations.
This year, we pay special attention to the impact ‘Big Data and the Cloud’ and ‘Leadership’ have on organizations; with global experts providing their insights on what is driving, influencing and motivating L&D leaders today.
In particular, our keynote speaker, Dan Pontefract, will provide guidance on how organizations can take advantage of new learning concepts and tools to help harness a concept known as ‘Flat Army.’ He will discuss insights from his best-selling book of the same title, which demonstrates five frameworks that foster more collaborative, connected and participative leaders—to improve employee engagement.
This year we will also launch our latest research report Leverage the Power of Big Data & the Cloud – Empower your employees with the right skills to maximize ROI and business impact which will provide insights on how big data and cloud solutions are impacting employees in organizations in Australia, New Zealand, China, India and the wider Asia Pacific region.
Organizations are demanding more business impact when it comes to L&D initiatives, and our speakers from OAMPS Insurance Brokers, Cardno and SEEK will share their successes and challenges with our delegates.
Earlier this year, Skillsoft announced a business collaboration with research powerhouse, IBM, which will allows us to leverage the elearning interactions of millions of learners to create more personalized, adaptive enterprise learning experiences. We will be sharing our latest developments in this exciting area.
