As the learning industry continues to evolve rapidly, we understand the importance of connecting with learning leaders to gain insights into the future of this dynamic field. At LearnUpon, we’re committed to keeping the customer at the heart of everything we do.  Therefore, we invited learning professionals from various industries not just for a masterclass on the future of learning, but also to foster a space where these experts could share their experiences, challenges, needs, and interests. This was an invaluable opportunity for the learning community to come together, allowing industry leaders to network, connect, and exchange expertise.

What Was the LearnUpon Future-Focused Masterclass?

We organized three events in three cities: London, Dublin, and the upcoming Utah event. These events weren’t just about learning; they were about facilitating meaningful discussions. The format was a panel discussion all set in an engaging and collaborative environment.

Our theme, “The Future of Learning,” sparked numerous thought-provoking conversations, particularly about the rapid changes in the industry.  We facilitated talks on various topics like learning personalization, learning in the flow of work, the impact of learning, and Learning Automation, emphasizing the collective expertise present in the room.

They were an exchange of ideas about the transformative role of AI and automation in learning, the integration of learning into work environments, and the measurement of learning outcomes. The collective wisdom in the room helped highlight different strategies for leveraging learning in driving business success, enhancing leadership skills, and impacting revenue growth, employee retention, and cost reduction.
