L&D Singapore 2023: Sessions you cannot miss if you’re an innovator, changemaker or disruptor!
The future of skills is continuously evolving, resulting in a disruptive talent marketplace. Capabilities that were once the driving force of businesses globally have been overtaken by new innovations in technology. Even learning solutions are no longer the same as we transition to AI, LXPs and diverse personalised modes for engagement and impact.
Research highlights that globally 24% of skills have changed since 2015, and it is predicted that if the world of work continues to transform at this rapid pace, skills could change by anywhere between 39% to 44% by 2025. That future is not far away.
For organisations, it has become absolutely fundamental to become agile and disruption-proof, helmed by strategic investments in technology and a resilient workforce. This is the only way they can not only sustain growth but continue to thrive. Agility and resilience undoubtedly come from investments in consistent and relevant skill-building. Even 89% of recruiting professionals across Southeast Asia (SEA) strongly believe in this, emphasising how upskilling and reskilling employees will play a critical role in the future of recruitment.
With the central theme of Leading Off: Built for Disruption, People Matters L&D Singapore ‘23 then comes at an opportune time, promising exciting insights on how to become future-ready with successful business and skills transformation, designing holistic capability-building strategies, reimagining learning infrastructure for delivery and impact and so much more. With an eclectic mix of CHROs, business leaders, L&D leaders, talent leaders, HR professionals, domain experts and innovators in the space of L&D and LearnTech joining us, we are all set to unlock exclusive takeaways on building disruption-proof organisations.
And if this isn’t enough to get you on board, we offer you a sneak peek into some of the sessions that you must not miss! From business-driven skill planning to building high-performance teams by re-imagining performance and talent management, we’ve got you covered. Here’s what awaits you:

Mastering Disruptive Leadership: Leading Across Cultures and Generations
