Neuro-Agility: A New Paradigm for Safeguarding Learning Organizations
Organizations are only as good as the people who work there. As organizations and markets become more complex and dynamic, people’s adaptability, agility, and flexibility to learn have become increasingly important to improving their performance and safeguarding their future progress. In organizations that embrace learning cultures, agility is more evident and change is not only embraced but exploited, while employees develop growth mindsets and seek out new opportunities to learn. During the opening keynote, Dr. André Vermeulen will illustrate how developing people’s neuro-agility will be essential to building a culture of learning and innovation to drive business results. Neuro-agility refers to the brain’s ability to learn quickly and easily, to think, learn and draw conclusions quickly and to be flexible in moving across ideas and understandings in such a way that they are able to maximize the potential learning value of a given experience and apply that learning to perform well under new or first-time conditions.

Future Proofing for Learning Professionals: How to future-proof your organization by creating a learning culture
Some people live in fear of machines taking over the world. Those of us in the learning profession know we need to prepare to help retool many in our workforce whose primary tasks can be done by technology. This is a global challenge. The sooner we create a learning culture, and get everyone onboard, the sooner we can get to work!
How does the role of the learning professional evolve when much of our content can be taught and accessed through technology? We provide the context, scenarios, simulations and experiences that help learners future-proof themselves, but change requires motivation. How do we create a learning culture that motivates learners? Creating a learning culture is not an accident, nor is it simply adding more classes to your catalog. Developing a learning culture means we invite learners, whole companies, to engage in the process of learning, which means changing the way we design learning so that it is more accelerated and more experiential. This means involving the learners from the beginning of the design and creating a new normal for training.
This session will share tools to help you get started. If you have already begun this journey, you will walk away with new perspectives and possibly some new methods you hadn’t previously considered. This interactive session will help you create a roadmap to that learning culture, no matter where you are in your journey as a learning professional!
