For whom:

The whole world is talking about upskilling and reskilling, which brings business opportunities for you as a training provider or vendor. Not sure what these opportunities are? No need to worry, because the groundwork has been laid out for you!



Did you know that the skills gap is expected to reach 8.5 billion by 2030? By then, 375 million workers globally need to be reskilled. These and many other facts were revealed to us over the past four months. Along with several learning experts, we researched all relevant aspects of the skills obsession.

After months of research, Ger Driesen and Simon Wallis take a look back and discuss the learning points.





What’s in it for you?


  • Insights from different parts of the learning world
    and ideas for business opportunities, based on the skills obsession;
  • Great input to change your conversations with business leaders
    and strengthen your professional reputation;
  • An hour full of interesting and even thought-provoking discussions!

The learning experts and their perspectives on the skills obsession


Ger Driesen
Learning Innovation Leader

Rotterdam, Netherlands

“If there’s one group of organisations that should be on top of this obsession around skills, it’s training providers.”

Ger has been invested in the skills obsession from the start and jumped right into action when we started our search for answers. He put a lot of time and effort in the topic: from interviewing learning professionals for the Perspectives Guide, to writing some blogs on skills himself.


Simon Wallis
Head of People & Development


Newtyne


Edinburgh, UK

“Understand what the organisational need is and keep track of what the skills are needed at any one time.”

Simon Wallis is one of the four experts who shared their perspective on the skills obsession. He has been involved in the conversation and sees what is happening. According to him, one of the main challenges for learning departments and learning providers is focus.

Training provider perspectives
on the 2022 Global Sentiment Survey

Wednesday, May 11th, 2022
4PM (16:00) – till 5PM (17:00) CET
Online


What:
The immensely popular Global Sentiment Survey gives great insights about what’s on the minds of learning professionals all over the world. Together with its creator, the one and only Donald H. Taylor, we will discuss and dive deeper into the results, specifically from the training provider perspective. Regional differences, trends over the years, opportunities and other interesting insights will be talked about.
For whom:
For learning professionals at training providers, learning providers, training organisations or vendors of training products, who want to know what’s going on in the L&D market.


For its 9th year now, the Global Sentiment Survey asks one simple question to learning professionals worldwide: what will be hot in workplace L&D this year?

Together with its creator, Donald H. Taylor, we will find out what training providers specifically can learn from it.




What’s the webinar about?


Everybody loves a list, ranking or top-something about their field of interest. One of the best known examples in the learniverse, is Don Taylor’s Global Sentiment Survey (GSS). But a list needs interpretation to become relevant and give valuable insights. How can you make the most out of the results for your specific situation?

The survey asks what an important topic will be in the full learning and development marketspace. So, the results are quite broad. This does not mean that it is useless for the training providers within that market. It just needs the right interpretation.

During this webinar, we will take a deeper dive into the specific results. We will try to work out what the takeaways are for training providers and how they can use them in their business plans or strategy.



What to expect?


  • A unique look for training providers into one of the largest and sharpest surveys of the learniverse.
  • Results and trends over the years, analysed by region, role, type of organisation and more.
  • Insights, takeaways and probably some new questions for training providers to benefit from what’s to come in their field of work.

Who is giving the webinar?

Donald H Taylor is a veteran in the fields of learning and development, and learning technologies, with experience at every level from design and delivery to chairman of the board.

His nickname, the Don of Learning, says it all. An authority in his field, well respected, influential and with an appropriate style. And, of course, the sense of humour we’ve come to appreciate from the British.

The L&D Global Sentiment Survey takes the pulse of the L&D community worldwide, annually. The one-minute online poll asks L&D professionals internationally what they think will be hot in the following year.

Aggregated, and examined over time, these answers provide a fascinating look at trends in what people in L&D are thinking. The 2022 results from the more than 3,500 participants were published in February.
