What does the future hold for L&D in high growth businesses?

In case you missed our virtual panel (24/09/20) with L&D leaders from Google, Facebook, Farfetch & T-minus, check out our event summary and key takeaways.

Event Context

Covid-19 has fundamentally changed the way we work and live. It’s forced companies to go remote overnight, reshape their business models and embrace digital like never before. This has profound implications for the future of learning and development. 

With this in mind we hosted a lively panel discussion and Q&A with L&D Leaders from Google, Facebook, Farfetch & more, where they shared their insights on what the future holds for L&D post-Covid and beyond.

Our Panel

Stephan Thoma (panel chair), former Google Global L&D Director. 

Jeff Turner, ex Head of International L&D at Facebook. 

Kim Wylie, Global Director of People Development & Change at Farfetch. 

Kat Gray, Head of International L&D at Facebook. 

Odharnait Ansbro, Senior L&D Partner at T-minus.

Event Agenda:

1. How will learning need to adapt to deliver for post-Covid remote workforces? And therefore, what skills will L&D leaders need to be successful in this future? 

2. What are the most impactful learning initiatives for high growth businesses right now, and what initiatives do you think will be most impactful as we look into the future? 

3. How can L&D prove value / ROI in a changing fast paced environment?

4. How can we enable L&D to move from a reactive service provider to a future-focused business partner?
