Talking Technology with industry experts at the LT Exchanges
The number of technologies within the L&D kit-bag has doubled since 2011! With a steady stream of new technologies being introduced across all sectors, for many L&D leaders this is a period of experimentation. An opportunity to dip your toes in and understand how these new technologies can help drive business transformation.
With this in mind, we invited industry thought-leaders speaking at the Learning Technologies Conference, to join us on the Exhibition floor at our round-table discussions called the LT Exchanges, and tackle some of today’s big questions around technology.
