future of executive development
2020 was truly a world-changing year.
Accelerated digital transformation, workforce distribution, and acute leadership dilemmas disrupted learning and development while making them more critical than ever. Learning leaders discovered that upskilling was necessary but not sufficient to deal with multi-variant crises. They also needed to increase individual and organisational capacities for growth through change.
Headspring Learning Xchange 2020 hosted leading experts, practitioners, and horizon-readers, who gathered to share the latest intelligence and emerging insights in learning, development, and adjacent fields.
Watch the 2020 event session recordings to explore where corporate learning was, where we are going, and how we may get there.

Harnessing the potential of the digital experience:
The path to delivering experiential learning virtually
Good content is key, but experience is transformative. Content is becoming a commodity and is easily available online form multiple platforms, often at virtually no cost. But true transformation does not occur from ‘academic tourism’. It happens when people are truly engaged in a learning experience that enables them to assimilate the use and purpose of a specific skill. In an online environment this is particularly hard to achieve, but L&D leaders must bring learning to life. Virtual reality, online simulators and AI have a key role to play in improving learning experience.
