Emerging from the fully integrated capabilities of Skillsoft and SumTotal, the Self-Developing Organisation is a deeply integrated content and engagement platform that knows, entices, improves and rewards employees.

Dr Karen Moloney – The Wow Factor: Using Technology to Help Clever People Embrace L&D
Find out how a combination of seductive technology and an understanding of drivers can hook clever learners to engage.
Our first keynote speaker, Karen will explore what these learners expect and need – everything from tailored challenges to world-class content and business-focused delivery methods.
Along the way, she’ll take a look at a range of techniques that work with this cohort, including wearable big data collection, the use of artificial intelligence in robot coaches – and more.
Kieran King – Talent Analytics: Tips from the Super-Smart SMEs
Talent analytics is a hot topic within the Skillsoft customer base. So we asked five of the world’s most prominent talent analytics authorities to discuss the current state of play. In this session, Kieran will present the findings, along with practical suggestions that will boost your talent analytics capabilities, addressing issues like:
- How big data relates to talent analytics
- What are the key steps for practicing talent analytics
- Why progression in talent analytics can seem like an uphill climb
- How organisations can diagnose their talent analytics maturity
- How to overcome roadblocks on the path towards talent analytics
James Caan – Investing in People with Passion
Our second keynote speaker, the serial entrepreneur James Caan, will share his insights on why investing in talented people is key to business success.
In his view, nothing is more important than hiring and developing people.
As he puts it; “I’ve always said that business is nothing without people. It’s people who breathe life into business, which is why I always surround myself with the best talent I can find. Once you’ve found your team, it is critical that you take time to invest in their development. That’s the best way to enable future growth, scale and success.”
