Back in September 2014 we wondered why in L&D and HR we spend so much time trying to predict the future. WHY AREN’T WE INVENTING IT OURSELVES?
The HR Game Changer conference ran concurrently in Auckland, New Zealand and London in the UK.
It kicked off a MOVEMENT to:
The L&D Game Changer will continue to explore where the FUTURE is going and inspire thinking, tools and techniques for you to TRANSFORM what you deliver.
This is not your usual conference.
Instead of the same old same old, you will hear from a variety of business innovators and game changers to take what’s on the cutting edge and use that in your own area. You’ll deep dive into topics,
discussing ideas and sharing these with other attendees.
You’ll experiment, you’ll learn, you’ll have some fun.
If this sounds scary, it’s really not. Challenge yourself to come and get a little uncomfortable. The game changer community will help you on your journey. If this sounds exciting, you’re already heading for the future with the right mind set and we’ll see you in March!
