Time: 12 - 1 p.m. GMT

We are faced with a global market and economy that no-one could have predicted even five years ago. Growth is tantalisingly close but who will form our new workforce and how will we develop them to operate in this new world? These questions make developing a learning strategy that is tightly aligned to your organisation's strategic goals, affordable, adaptable and effective essential.

It's one of the most urgent and important tasks to be done and one that will define who succeeds and who fails. We'll explore the growing need to tackle these strategic issues and how to develop the right measurement set to engage organisational leaders and prioritise learning by developing a clear focus on application and ROI as well as creating a learning environment that becomes an asset in the race to attract and retain the talent needed for success.

  • Aligning learning to strategic goals and critical skills
