When we were deciding the theme for this year’s conference we talked to both our customers and our team to try and get a sense of what’s ‘hot’ right now – what are the issues and the topics the industry is buzzing about.
Turns out we are all looking to the future and there is a sense of curiosity and anxiety around it, what it will bring, what organizational learning will look like and what the worker of the future will expect from their employer.
This led us to ‘Step into the Future of Learning and Talent’ as our theme and it is one we think is particularly relevant given how consumer-led content, technology, gamification, virtual reality and Gen Z are dramatically changing the way we approach learning and talent today.
So, what can you expect at APAC Perspectives on June 1?
We will be hearing from several our customers including the National Disability Services (NDS), Australia's peak body for non-government disability service organisations, who represent more than 1100 non-government service providers who will discuss how they are using our platform to enable them to offer training capabilities to all their members.
I am looking forward to hearing what Michael McQueen, named in 2015 Australia’s Keynote Speaker of the Year, has to say about emerging trends shaping society and culture and how it impacts business decisions.
And finally, there will, as usual, be plenty of opportunities for you to network with your peers and learning professionals from the region. Our team of learning experts will also be on hand to demo our new technology, show off our new content and offer their expertise to help you answer your most pressing questions.
