As COVID-19 changes the realities of our lives, our businesses, and our jobs, it has become very clear that old skills and capabilities have to lead to the new for organizations to accelerate their transformation out of the downturn. Articulating critical skills for recovery, building the base of future digital skills, reimagining training at a scale in a distant world, and bringing on an experimentative mindset is the need of the hour.
It is in this direction that the People Matters L&D SEA Conference 2021 coming to your screens on 4rth March 2021 aims to bring the community together to help reflect and find collective answers to uncover a new roadmap to build the foundation of a capability-driven business strategy for growth.
Here’s a quick look at some of the thought leaders who will lead the conversation on reimagining learning to rev-up growth.
