We’ve begun to hear the message constantly: lifelong learning is more important than ever before. Employment and economic conditions have changed dramatically because of what technology has made possible. Information flows through our work and personal networks at blistering speed. Artificial intelligence and robotics are well on their way to reshaping the global job market. In short, massive change is the order of the day – and the only way to adapt and evolve is to embrace constant, effective lifelong learning.
But how can organizations that serve lifelong learners best adapt to this new environment? How do we shed legacy practices that are no longer effective and embrace new approaches to engaging and empowering learners? In this speech I challenge and inspire learning business leaders to not just react to the changing learning landscape but to actively shape a future in which we and the learners we serve will thrive.
Jeff Cobb draws on a depth of experience and expertise to address a topic that is critical to trade and professional associations. How successfully we navigate the future of learning will have a huge impact on the level of value we are able to provide to our members and to society.
