“Learning challenges have never been greater than now,” attests Catherine Upton, Conference Chair and Group Publisher, Elearning! Media Group, “We are seeing a massive transition in the workplace from millennials to automation and AI. How we deliver learning is shifting as well as the ecosystems that support it. Plus, the disruption from automation and AI will erase about 370 million jobs. This talent needs to be retrained and redeployed to new emerging roles. This is where L&D can lead the charge,” concludes Upton.


Since 2008, the Enterprise Learning! Events is the event where top global learning leaders confront business challenges such as these, share advice and strategize. 


The Business of Learning

ELC18 conference features four distinct tracks supporting the theme of “The Business of Learning.” They focus on strategy, best practices and technologies that drive business impact. The tracks are:


1.     Best Practices of the Engaged Workforce

Employee engagement is a top business objective among CEOs. Presenters should focus on topics like how learning leaders can impact engagement; how engagement is measured; how engagement impacts business performance, retention and culture. Research and case studies should point to convincing evidence and best practices to share with the executive audience. 

2.     Future Workforce Talent Strategies  

More than 370 million jobs will be displaced due to automation and Artificial Intelligence. Yet, 80% of CEOs plan to retrain and redeploy this talent. Learning & Development leaders will drive this important transition. Presenters should address how L&D can lead this transition; and how to plan for this disruption and strategies to futureproof the talent pipeline.

3.     Learning Ecosystem Evolution

Millennials make up a majority of the workforce; their communication and learning preferences are shifting learning practices and the supporting ecosystems. Add emerging technologies like AI, machine learning, AR, and VR to today’s mobile, virtual and video platforms, and witness a reimagined learning ecosystem.  Presentations are invited on the emerging ecosystems; how to personalize learning, tap predictive analytics and leverage immersive learning; and how cognitive and data driven intelligent systems are evolving.

 4.     The Business Impact of Learning

Talent management and L&D have vital roles to fuel the high-performance enterprise.  Presenters can focus on which learning initiatives have greatest impact; how to measure business impact; and how to make the case for L&D investments. Plus, how do leaders tap data and analytics to prove business impact.
