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.

    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!
