SAVE THE DATE: Learning Executive Forum 2015 & Leonardo European Corporate Learning Award

Posted by Thomas Jenewein in SAP Training and Education Apr 29, 2015 10:59:57 AM


The Executive Forum, taking place on September 14, 2015 at the Hotel Kameha Grand in Bonn provides C-Level Executives unique opportunities to interact with experts and practitioners regarding the two major trends of the last years in corporate learning:

  • Transforming the global learning organization in terms of vision, governance, technology, processes and operating models &
  • Creation of functional academies for critical workforces (e.g. Finance, Sales & Marketing, Supply Chain, IT), governed not primarily by HR, but by the function itself.

Both trends have to be seen in conjunction and are fueled by the challenges around digitalization, informal learning, analytics, sustainability or multi-generational workforces.

The Professional Learning Executive Forum 2015 will analyze experiences and discuss success factors of the transformation and operation of functional academies. We will have keynotes from Learning Executives as well as from Executives of the Business Functions, who own their respective Academy. In interactive formats, like world-café and fish-bowl, best practices from various functions in European corporations will be shared and discussed. Please find here a recap on the the Learning Executive Forum 2014 for some inspirations.

In the evening, please join us at the awards ceremony of the "Young Leonardo European Corporate Learning Award". Brave, smart and successful young learning visionaries and practitioners in the sense of Leonardo da Vinci's excellent, will be awarded for their unconventional, partly revolutionary, but carefully considered, fun- and future orientated educational learning methods.
